Representing Slip and Fall Victims in Wheaton, Hoffman Estates, Palatine, and the Northwest Suburbs

Premises liability is the area of law that works to compensate those who are injured in accidents that occur on the property of others. In order to recover, victims need to establish that their accident occurred due to the negligence of the party responsible for the maintenance of the property, which in most cases is the property owner or a tenant renting the property. Whether negligence was the cause of an accident is an extremely complicated legal issue. If you have been hurt in an accident on someone else's property, you should have your case reviewed by an experienced lawyer immediately.

Providing Aggressive Representation for Slip and Fall Accident Victims

Slip and fall cases are one of the most common types of premises liability claims. They arise when a hazardous condition causes a person to slip, fall, and injure himself or herself. Everyone has likely been the victim of a slip and fall accident at some point in life. While most of these cases do not cause serious injury (and therefore do not lead to litigation), slip and fall accidents are capable of causing extremely serious injuries that require medical attention. Some of the more common causes of these accidents that are often due to negligence include the following:

  • Poor or inadequate lighting
  • Slippery floors
  • Debris left in walkways
  • Cracked pavement
  • Liquid spills
  • Exposed electrical wiring
  • Torn carpet
  • Stairs without handrails

Other Types of Accidents Can Lead to Premises Liability Claims

While slip and fall accidents make up a significant portion of premises liability claims, there are many other accidents that could potentially lead to a case. These include:

  • Escalator accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Accidents involving the release of hazardous materials
  • Electrical accidents resulting in injury
  • Explosions
