Stop Avoidable Accidents

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Call a Trusted Chicago Slip and Fall Lawyer if You Were Injured in a Fall

When you’re on someone else’s property – be it commercial, private, or public property – you’re putting your trust in its owner that you will leave that property just as you entered it: Unharmed. Particularly in Chicago, with so many old buildings and public areas, sometimes that unwritten promise is broken, and you could walk away with anything from a stubbed toe to a devastating spinal cord injury. For serious personal injuries like the latter, which are someone else’s liability, don’t hesitate to contact a Chicago slip and fall attorney to both assess the situation and help you make your claim. You could walk out of court with the responsible parties held accountable for your pain, and measures in place to prevent the same from happening to other people. Most importantly for you personally, you could also receive compensation for expensive medical bills and other damages, too.

The Liability of Property Owners

While each individual has the responsibility to act with safety and security in mind, property owners, store managers, and commercial businesses have an express legal duty to provide a basic level of safety for visitors (who are present legally) on their property. When this standard of duty is not maintained, the owners or managers may be responsible for accidents and injuries that result. If insurance companies are involved, they also have a responsibility to pay a fair compensation settlement to victims for those injuries.

Filing Liability Claims

There are many different circumstances that can prompt slip and fall claims; for guidance through this process, the best thing that you can do is call an expert Chicago slip and fall lawyer. The attorneys at Malman Law are ready to help you receive compensation so that you can return to normalcy after a tragic slip and fall. Don’t blame yourself – even if you feel embarrassed or frustrated. Slip and falls can often be the result of carelessness or negligence on the part of the property owner or business. If this is the case, then the slip and fall (and the pain and hardship that resulted) is not your fault.

If you have been injured in an avoidable accident in your day-to-day life due to someone else’s negligence, filing a claim will enable you to ensure that it doesn’t happen again to anyone else on the same property. Having a professional by your side through this process will ensure that you have someone who can look at all the angles of your accident to settle your claim – or bring your claim to court – successfully.

When seeking legal representation through Malman Law, our attorneys will examine your case to determine if a claim can be made under the law. We will establish that:

  • The property owner created the unsafe condition, or was aware of its presence;
  • The property owner had knowledge of and a reasonable amount of time to correct or remove the danger, but did not; or
  • The proper owner should have discovered of the condition, given the length of time that it was present, and did not correct it.

Once these standards can be established, our team will pursue your claim in court or through settlement with the owner or business (or the insurance company) to the fullest extent of the law. Our thorough and aggressive representation has helped thousands of others who have been injured just like you. Now, we want to help you gain rightful compensation, while also stopping the negligence of others from causing more painful and life-changing accidents in our beloved city.
