Contingency-Fees Mean You Owe Our Lawyers No Upfront Fees

To add to the security of our contingency-fee model, we also offer free case reviews for potential clients. This means that you can simply contact us and speak to someone from our team about the details of your case, your options, and any concerns that you may have.
Navigating the Statute of Limitations
According to the personal injury statute of limitations in 735 ILCS 5/13-202, you have up to two years after an incident to take legal action. When you fail to do so, you may give up your rights to pursue justice after a slip and fall accident. To avoid this, it is advisable to seek legal assistance right away after you suffer an injury.
Our team of lawyers will help you sort out the details of your slipping accident case as they relate to state laws and statutes. We will also answer any questions that you may have about the progress of your case.
Establishing a Liable Party and Pursuing Justice
When dealing with a slip and fall accident, several factors can impact liability. In many cases, visitors to a piece of public property have the right to their safety. Additionally, property owners and business owners have the responsibility to properly maintain the cleanliness, safety, and upkeep of their properties.
If a property owner or other party fails to take care of their property and this leads to an injury, the owner may be held liable. Similarly, several other acts of negligence, such as poor lighting and improper cleaning techniques, can place liability on a property owner.
Our team of slip and fall injury attorneys serving Des Plaines will identify and establish a liable party so that we can continue our pursuit of justice on your behalf.
Steps to Take After a Slip and Fall Accident
Slip and fall accidents should always be taken seriously, as even a single fall can lead to the development of lifelong health complications that worsen over time. As information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows, serious injuries result from one out of every five falls. Given these kinds of numbers, it is important to seek medical attention immediately after a fall.
After consulting with a doctor about your situation, our team of lawyers will be here to assist you and advise you on your legal options. We will inform you about your rights and answer your questions as needed.
