Slip and Fall

A Slip and Fall injury occurs when a person is injured because they slipped or tripped over an out of place item or element (such as water). Examples of this are slipping on ice outside on the sidewalk, or inside of a building where the floor is wet. Depending on the location of a slip and fall, a victim that sustained an injury may have a case if the slip and fall was caused by another person’s negligent act. The Illinois Hammer Injury Law Firm has over 25 years of experience with Slip and Fall cases, and we can help assess your injury and the best course of action for free.

Slip and Fall injuries are more common than one might think. Some victims may feel embarrassed or unnecessarily blame themselves, when they are not at fault. If there were no signs nor warnings that a surface may be in an altered state, then there could be a case of negligence, which means if you’re a victim of a Slip and Fall that left you injured, you can seek legal recourse.

For example, if there is a large puddle and the building owners had been warned about its potential to cause injury, but the building owners did nothing to attempt to warn of that potential harm, such as putting up a sign, or they did not dispatch a person to clean the puddle, then there is proof of negligence. In this case, the victim could have a personal injury claim against the building owners. Negligence is always a key factor of a personal injury case, and there is no exception to a slip and fall accident

Most slip and falls result in back, neck, ankle, and knee injuries.

After a slip and fall due to another person’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. If you feel you are the victim of a slip and fall accident, the Illinois Hammer Injury Law firm, with slip and fall attorneys serving Chicago, Rockford, Aurora, and cities throughout Illinois, can help assess your case.
