Slip & Fall Lawyer in Chicagoland
Work With an Experienced Premises Liability Attorney
Slip and falls are some of the most common premises liability cases. However, just because you’ve fallen on someone else’s property doesn’t mean you automatically are entitled to compensation for your injuries. The nature of these cases is very complicated, and consequently, you want to find a personal injury attorney familiar with how slip and fall cases are handled in Illinois. At Panio Law Offices, we have extensive experience managing these types of personal injury cases, and with two convenient offices located in Chicago and Homewood, we are prepared to help you today.
Types of Slip & Fall Cases
Many conditions can result in a slip and fall injury. The first step your attorney will take is investigating your case to determine who is liable for the damage. This involves a detail-oriented approach and a thorough knowledge of premises liability law. These cases can be extraordinarily complicated when it is unclear who is responsible for maintaining the property in question, as, in some situations, the person responsible is the licensee of the property and not the property owner themselves.
Common causes of slip and fall injuries include:
- Wet and/or oily pathways
- Snow and ice on walkways
- Uneven and/or damaged walkways
- Potholes and missing bricks in sidewalks
- Broken stairways or missing stairs
- Obstructions in walkways
Proving that the property owner was aware of the hazardous conditions, or that the property owner should have been aware of the unsafe conditions, is integral to the successful resolution of your case. Your attorney will also need to prove that they failed to take necessary actions to repair and maintain their property.
