Chicago, Illinois Slip and Fall Attorneys

Have you or someone you know suffered injuries from a slip and fall accident? Have you tried in vain to obtain compensation from another party for reimbursement of medical bills and pain and suffering? Have pain, loss of wages, and increasing medical bills put a strain on your relationships?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you need someone to fight for you. No one should have to endure the pain and anguish of physical injuries such as head and spinal cord injuries and then have to fight for their just compensation. Our experienced personal injury attorneys at Malman Law will aggressively pursue your lawful claim originating from a slip and fall accident.

What is a slip and fall accident?

There are several types of slip and fall type accidents. These include:

  • Trip and fall – thousands of people are injured each year in trip and fall accidents resulting from uneven ground conditions such as curbs, tree roots, or sprinklers.
  • Step and fall – serious injuries can occur from falls caused by holes, slippery ground, or any failure of the surface you are walking on.
  • Stump and fall – severe spinal injury can happen when you encounter an unexpected obstacle while walking.

What are my rights if I slip and fall on someone else’s property?

If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, the property owner may be liable for your injuries. You need an experienced slip and fall accidents lawyer to provide a competent evaluation of your case and engage the proprietor or the insurance provider(s).

Our personal injury attorneys at Malman Law will collaborate with experts to assess the extent of your case. We have a proven track record of success in evaluating accidents that are usually hard to prove. By consulting with specialists, we can establish the amount of recovery you are entitled to.

How much is my case worth?

Each claim will differ based on the type of injury sustained and where the accident took place, whether on private, commercial, or public property. What other factors will we consider in determining the value of your case? Here are a few:

  • Severity of your injury
  • Past, current, and future medical bills associated with the slip and fall injury
  • Lost wages if you were unable to work while recovering from the injury
  • Pain and suffering

How do I know who is liable for my injuries?

We all have a basic duty to act in a safe manner given the conditions that we find ourselves in. With that said, property owners have a certain degree of responsibility in how they maintain their premises. Property owners must take reasonable steps to ensure that their property is free from dangerous conditions that would cause a person to slip and fall.

A slip and fall accident may involve various liable parties, such as property owners, managers, and sometimes multiple insurance companies. How do you know whom to contact? Having a reputable slip and fall accidents lawyer is crucial to your success in determining liability and, ultimately, in obtaining a favorable judgment and settlement.

I’m not sure I have a case…

It is easy to get discouraged when talking to friends and family, or even by the unsolicited “friendly advice” of strangers, about your slip and fall accident. Only an experienced personal injury attorney can tell you for sure whether you have legally valid claim. They will take into account the legal standards for slip and fall accidents that were put in place to protect people from personal injury. These standards include establishing that:

  1. The owner of the property created the condition.
  2. The owner of the property knew the condition existed and negligently failed to correct it.
  3. The condition existed for such a length of time that the owner should have discovered and corrected it prior to the slip and fall incident.
