Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys in Chicago
Cook County and Lake County Lawyers for Clients Injured in Slip and Fall Accidents
When you enter someone else’s property, whether it is a commercial establishment like a department store, or private property, such as a neighbor’s yard, you have the right to expect a certain level of safety. By allowing you on the property, the owner or occupant of the property owes you what is known as a “duty of care,” which means he or she is responsible for taking reasonable steps to ensure the property is safe. If the owner breaches that duty and you are injured in a slip and fall accident, he or she may be held liable for your injuries.
At Pullano Law Offices, our attorneys have more than 35 years of combined experience representing clients in premises liability cases, including slip and falls. We carefully select every case so that each client can receive the personal attention of a team dedicated to the pursuit of full justice and maximum recovery. This approach has helped our firm establish a long and impressive history of success, along with many record-setting victories. We will work tirelessly to uphold your trust in every facet of your case.
Slip and Fall Attorneys in Northern Illinois
Accidents involving slip and falls can happen virtually anywhere and at any time. There are, however, a number of common causes for such accidents. Injuries due to a slip and fall may be caused by:
- Wet or uneven floors and surfaces: Loose tiles, poorly paved parking lots, or recently mopped floors can all present a serious danger to an unsuspecting individual.
- Inclement weather: Wind, rain, ice, and snow create dangerous walking conditions. While it is not within a property owner’s ability to control the weather, he or she—and possibly the municipality—is often responsible for exercising reasonable care during snow removal, while applying ice-melting materials, and otherwise ensuring safe walkways.
- Substandard worksite training: Many manufacturing and construction jobs require workers to traverse slippery or narrow paths. There may be safety protocols in place to prevent injury, and ignoring such protocols may create liability.
- Nursing home neglect: Elderly people are often at a higher risk for slip and fall accidents. Those in nursing homes or senior living centers may require assistance walking or continual monitoring, and a failure on the part of the center to provide the needed care can lead to injuries.
No matter what type of scenario caused your slip and fall, if you have been injured, our attorneys are prepared to help. We pledge a full investigation of your claim. We will review every detail of your case and work to hold every liable party responsible for their role in causing your injuries.
