Rockford, IL Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers

Boone County Slip and Fall Lawyer

Winnebago County Premises Liability Attorneys Representing those Injured from Slips, Trips, and Falls

Slip and fall accidents are among the most common types of premises liability claims. When someone slips, trips, and falls at a restaurant, store, or mall, a construction site, or a residential property, it is often the result of the negligence or carelessness of the property owner or caretaker. A bad fall can often result in serious and sometimes catastrophic injuries. If this has happened to you or a loved one, it is important to have a seasoned personal injury attorney by your side aggressively advocating for your rights and interests.

Slip and Fall Injury Cases in Illinois

The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) reports that slips, trips, and falls are the number one reason Americans visit the emergency room each year. Some of the most common injuries that occur from falls include:

Hazardous conditions are a leading contributor to slip and fall injuries. Examples of conditions on a property that may be unsafe for guests and visitors include:

  • Flooring problems (e.g., wet and oily floors that are not clearly marked, bulging carpets, etc.)
  • Poorly maintained staircases and handrails
  • Dangerous escalator defects
  • Poor lighting
  • Snowy or icy sidewalks or walkways

Proving liability in a slip and fall injury case can be difficult. A thorough investigation must be conducted to determine how dangerous the hazard was that caused the accident, how long the hazard existed, and if the owner/caretaker was aware or should have been aware of the hazard. Other factors must also be taken into account, such as whether the victim was trespassing or if they had a legal right to be on the property at the time of the injury.
