Peoria Slip and Fall Attorneys

A slip and fall accident can change your day, your week, and possibly your life. Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and to anyone. They are frightening because they take you by surprise and can cause severe pain and injury. Falls are the most common variety of accidental injuries. Over 33,000 people died from falls in 2015 alone. Fall injuries can be so serious that the National Safety Council’s Odds of Dying list places falls as the 6th most likely cause of death, making the odds of dying from a fall one in 127.
If you or your loved one recently experienced a slip and fall accident that caused serious injuries, don’t hesitate to call on our reputable Peoria slip and fall attorneys for help. You could be owed compensation for your injuries.

Do You Have a Slip and Fall Claim?

After a slip and fall accident, many victims want to know if they have a legal claim. However, there are no quick and easy one-size-fits-all answers to this critical question. It’s best to meet with experienced Peoria slip and fall lawyers who can study the facts of your case to determine what your next best steps are. When you meet with us, we will analyze factors like:

  • Accident evidence
  • Who was at fault
  • Your injuries
  • Your hospital stays
  • Your past and present surgeries
  • If there will be permanent damage to your health or well-being
  • Your future medical needs
  • The Illinois Premise Liability Act

Generally, a valid slip and fall claim will have the following elements:

  • Someone owed you a duty of care, for instance, the owner of a grocery store
  • They breached that duty of care, for example, by not shoveling snowy and icy sidewalks
  • Their breach of duty caused you to slip and fall
  • Your slip and fall caused your injuries and damages

You or your attorney must be able to prove each of these elements; otherwise, you will likely lose your case.
Property owners are expected to fix or remove any dangers on their property or otherwise warn guests of them or block access to them. If the property owner could have reasonably been aware or was aware of the problem and failed to take action, they have liability for your injuries.

Common Injuries Caused by Falls

Some falls cause little to no injury, but other falls can cause serious injuries, and in severe cases, even death. Common injuries from falls include:

  • Broken bones, such as wrist, arm, leg, ankle, and hip fractures
  • Head and brain injuries which can be debilitating or life-threatening
  • Soft tissue injuries such as injured tendons or ligaments
  • Spinal cord injuries occur when the spinal cord is severed or compressed and can cause paralysis and be life-threatening

Falls can also be debilitating in a mental sense. After a fall, many people become extremely afraid that they will fall again. These fears can impact how they live their life and their mental and emotional state.

Filing Deadline for Slip and Fall Cases

It’s important to note that you have limited time to file a legal claim for your slip and fall injuries. This deadline is commonly known as the statute of limitations. Each state has its own statute; in Illinois, it is two years from the date of your accident. Unless the party who caused your injuries is an employee of a public entity, then you have one year from the date of your slip and fall to file a claim. If you miss this crucial deadline, the defendant will likely ask the court to dismiss your claim, and the court can refuse to hear your case. By getting Peoria slip and fall attorneys on your side as soon as possible, you can help ensure that your case is filed on time.

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
