Chicago Slip and Fall Accident Attorney

You should be able to visit someone else’s property without fear of accident or injury. Slip and fall accidents happen all too often in the city of Chicago and can leave the victim with permanent physical damage, hospitalizations, extensive medical treatment and costly medical bills.   In addition, tenants living on another person’s property may also be injured due to the recklessness or negligence of a landlord or property manager.

However, in order to hold these parties liable you must show:

  • The owners of the property failed to maintain their property
  • The unsafe conditions that caused the injury were created by the owners
  • The owners knew about the unsafe conditions and did not alert visitors, or tenants about them

According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) every 8 seconds someone is a victim of a slip and fall accident, resulting in the death of 17,000 Americans per year.  These accidents can occur in the workplace or during a casual walk to the grocery store. The many injuries that can occur as a result of a slip and fall accident include but are not limited to:

•  Broken Bones and Fractures

•  Head Trauma

•  Incapacitation

•  Spinal Cord Injuries
