Lake & McHenry County Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers
Serious Injuries Due to Slips and Falls
Since we were toddlers, we have come to understand that slipping and falling down is an unavoidable part of life. Yet sometimes these kinds of accidents can cause serious personal injury. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware that a large portion of these cases could have been avoided if it were not for the negligence of another individual. In these types of slip and fall cases, you are likely entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident that caused your personal injury, it is in your best interest to seek the help of an expert attorney to fight for your rights.
Common Causes and Liability
There are many common reasons that cause a person to suffer personal injury from slipping and falling. Some of these reasons typically include:
- – Wet surfaces or walkways due to spills or plumbing issues
- – Icy surfaces or walkways due to unsafe weather conditions
- – Failure to post notice of a hazard
- – Unexpected holes or uneven footing
- – Poor Lighting
- – Cluttered or messy areas that create obstructions
Any of these conditions can be caused by the carelessness and negligence of the owner of a premises. If it can be determined that the owner is liable, you are entitled to compensation. When the owner either causes one of these conditions or is aware of the hazardous condition but chooses not to address the problem, the owner is liable for your injury.
