A slip and fall injury may sound innocuous, but for many people, it can be life-altering. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), falls are a leading cause of accidental death and debilitation, especially among the elderly. If you or someone you love has been injured in a fall, you may be eligible for a monetary settlement or award. The owner or manager of the property where the accident occurred may be liable, particularly if a dangerous or hazardous condition led to the injury.

Who May Be Liable for Your Aurora Slip and Fall Injury
The Kryder Law Group, LLC, will evaluate your slip and fall injury claim and first determine who was liable for your accident. For a party to face liability for someone else’s slip and fall injury in Illinois, they must have some degree of control over a property or premises. If a dangerous or hazardous condition emerges on those premises and the party does not adequately address the problem, they can be held liable when a guest of the property is injured because of it.
A few of the most likely responsible parties for your Aurora slip and fall injury are:
The Property Owner
The owner of the property is often the one who is liable for your slip and fall injury. According to Illinois Compiled Statutes 740 ILCS 130/, a property owner must keep their premises safe for guests and passersby, and they must address any hazardous conditions right away. If the problem cannot be fixed immediately, the owner must protect others from it either by physically blocking off the area or by posting clear signage alerting guests to the danger.
The Property Manager
A property manager has the same duty of care as the property owner. They are typically hired to manage the property, one of their duties being to take care of any maintenance issues that arise. If they allow a dangerous condition to fester, they may be held liable for injuries that result from it.
If you slipped and fell at work, you may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim with your employer. If a non-employer third party, such as a jobsite owner, was partly or fully liable for your accident, we can pursue compensation from them in a private lawsuit.
The Builder or Building Manager
If a builder or building manager negligently allowed a dangerous condition to form or persist, they may also face liability for your slip and fall injury.
Depending on the unique circumstances of your injury, there may be additional liable parties than the ones listed above. An Aurora slip and fall injury lawyer at the Kryder Law Group, LLC, may identify all potentially liable parties and investigate them.
