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 or 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 liability injury 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 accident. Only an experienced injury attorney can tell you for sure whether you have legally valid claim. They will take into account the legal standards for fall accidents that were put in place to protect people from personal injury. These standards include establishing that:

  • The owner of the property created the condition.
  • The owner of the property knew the condition existed and negligently failed to correct it.
  • 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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I hurt my back in a slip and fall in Chicago. What are my legal rights?

When you fall in Chicago when you’re on someone else’s property or when you’re shopping, it can cause injuries to your back, neck, and also cause other injuries. People who own property, regardless of whether it is residential or commercial, have a legal obligation to keep their property reasonably safe for others. You may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Slip and falls in Chicago can have more than one liable person. The person who owns the property is likely liable. However, managers of a store and even the insurance company may be held legally liable. It can be hard for you to determine liability on your own. If you’ve experienced a slip or fall in Chicago, you should call Malman Law to have your case evaluated. Call us today at 1-888-247-2160 to schedule your free initial consultation.

How do I know if I have a slip and fall case in Chicago?

With all of the information available online, it can be hard for most people to know whether they have a legitimate liability case in Chicago. It’s important that you immediately contact an experienced liability attorney in Chicago. There are three main standards used by personal injury lawyers to establish if you have a valid claim:

  • The owner of the property created the condition that caused the slip and fall. A common example of this would be a retail environment that mopped their floor, but did not have signs indicating that the floor was slippery.
  • The owner knew of the condition and did nothing to correct it. When dangers, such as a wet floor, are known and they are not corrected, this is negligence. Negligence isn’t always that easy to determine. For instance, if a property owner or retail manager was not aware of a hazard that caused the accident, there may still be negligence, but it isn’t as easy to define as the previous example.
  • The condition existed for a long period of time and the owner should have been aware of its existence and corrected it. This particular standard shows the importance of contacting a Chicago injury attorney. A standard like this may seem easy to determine, but in reality, it can be hard to meet.
