  • Champaign Slip and Fall Attorneys

Approximately 9.2 million individuals were treated in emergency rooms for fall-related injuries in 2016 alone. Many of these individuals suffered severe injuries or even lost their lives to their fall. What’s even worse is that some of these falls were preventable; they occurred because someone else was negligent. Victims of these slip and fall incidence deserve fair compensation for their injuries. Seasoned Champaign slip and fall attorneys can help them seek justice.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can happen nearly anywhere and for many reasons. These are the most common causes of slip and fall injuries:

  1. Broken or uneven pavement in sidewalks or parking lots
  2. Snowy, icy, or wet floors and walkways
  3. Ripped, torn, or loose rugs and carpeting
  4. Liquids spilled on floors
  5. Broken or uneven stairs
  6. Poor lighting conditions
  7. Broken, missing, or loose handrails
  8. Defective escalators or elevators
  9. Holes in the ground or objects sticking out from the ground

In all of these examples, the property owner could take steps to fix the problem or warn those coming on the property of the problem. For example, walkways can be shoveled, liquids can be promptly cleaned up, more lighting can be added, and defective escalators can be fixed.

Do You Have a Slip and Fall Injury Case?

If you believe that another person or party could be liable for your injuries, you should schedule a consultation with Champaign slip and fall lawyers. After examining the facts of your case, they can help you determine if you have a valid claim and, if so, what you should do to pursue it.

A slip and fall case is a premise liability case governed by the Illinois Premise Liability Act. You might have a valid claim if you can prove:

  1. You were presented with an unreasonable risk of injury by a condition on the property
  2. The property owner was aware or should have reasonably been aware of the condition and risk of injury
  3. The property owner could reasonably anticipate that you would not have realized the danger to take steps to prevent your injury
  4. The property owner failed to do anything to protect you and others from this hazardous risk by either fixing it or giving a proper warning about it
  5. Because the property owner was negligent, you sustained injuries

You and your Champaign slip and fall attorneys should contemplate the following questions to determine if you can bring a slip and fall claim:

  1. Had the danger existed long enough so that the property owner should have known about it?
  2. If a previously necessary object could have been removed?
  3. Is there a safer place the object could have been moved without significant inconvenience or cost to the property owner?
  4. Could a simple barrier have been used or a warning given to prevent you and others from slipping or tripping?
  5. Did broken lighting or lack of sufficient lighting contribute to your fall?

Be Aware of the Statute of Limitations

A statute of limitations is a legal deadline placed on potential personal injury plaintiffs to file their lawsuit. Different types of personal injury cases can have different deadlines. For slip and fall claims, this deadline is two years from the date of the accident. If your claim is against a government entity, you only have one year from the date of your injury to file your claim. If you fail to file your claim within the limits of the statute of limitations, you could be barred from ever seeking compensation for your injuries.

Contacting Champaign slip and fall lawyers as soon as possible after your accident can help your case be more successful. Your attorney can begin gathering and preserving crucial evidence and start the process of bringing a claim against the at-fault party. You will not miss the filing deadline with legal representation from an experienced attorney.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
