We’ve all heard of slip and fall cases, but often don’t take them seriously until they happen to us, or someone we love.
Slip and falls are entirely too common and can cause severe injury. A slip and fall injury can be the result of slippery or slick floors, uneven pavement, flooring changes, treacherous stairs, and obstacles in your path.
What to do After a Slip and Fall Accident
Slip and fall injuries recorded in Illinois range from mild to severe, and even life threating. Many victims don’t seek out medical help until a few days after the incident. If you or someone you know has recently fallen at an establishment or public facility it is imperative that you consult with an attorney, and seek medical attention immediately.
The purpose of this medical visit is to determine if you have injuries related to the accident. If you are not sure what type of doctor to visit, we have some local Chicago and Illinois resources to share with you.
Our team of experienced attorneys can speak with you about the accident, and whether you are entitled to compensation for medical bills, injuries, damages, lost wages or other costs. We have helped slip and fall victims across Illinois recover compensation for their accident.
Property Owner’s Responsibility
Property owners are required to maintain their property and protect it with business, liability, property or other types of insurance. In the event that an accident occurs, many insurance companies have a provision for the medical treatment of the person injured. This can include simple maintenance like pothole repair, ice and snow removal, clear flooring and stairs, uneven or dramatic change from flooring to carpet and other general safety guidelines.
