The Benefits of Hiring an Injury Lawyer After a Slip and Fall Accident

To make the legal process as stress-free as possible, we provide the following services to help our clients:

Prove Another Party Is Liable for Your Injuries

In a personal injury case, demonstrating another party is financially responsible for the accident is achieved by proving they were negligent in some way. We investigate the circumstances of the accident to:

  • Determine what caused the accident
  • Identify who could be liable
  • Prove the extent of your injuries

Slip and fall accidents can be tough to litigate, especially while you are recovering. Fault is not always clear cut, and a property owner will likely put up a tough fight to defend any claims brought against them. We shoulder the legal responsibility by representing your best interests and ensuring you are always fairly treated. 

Assess the Value of Your Case

It can be difficult for you to know the full value of your case without prior experience with damage assessments. The amount you can seek will depend on factors such as:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • The cost of your medical care and rehabilitation
  • The impact of your injuries on your work and life
  • Liability for your injuries

Our Oak Park lawyers can accurately calculate the full financial impact of your injuries, along with projections for any losses you may incur in the future. This way, we can negotiate for a slip and fall injury settlement that reflects what you deserve. 

This can look like fair compensation, and financial stability in the future (if the injury affects your ability to work, for example). 

Manage All Communications, Negotiations, and Case Administration

The National Floor Safety Institute states that slip and fall accidents are widespread and affect many thousands of people each year, some very seriously. In addition, injuries sustained can require significant time to heal. 

Having our injury lawyers manage every step of your case can provide peace of mind so that you can fully focus on your recovery. 

The Different Types of Recoverable Damages Available

Slip and fall accidents can cause a range of injuries, from cuts and bruises to broken bones and fractures, concussions, and even brain and spinal cord injuries. Our injury attorneys can help you get the support you need, such as medical treatment and rehabilitation. We could seek compensation for your:

  • Current and future medical bills and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages and compensation if the accident affects your ability to earn an income
  • Pain and suffering, reflecting your physical pain and emotional hardships

Compensation Is Available If the Accident Caused the Loss of a Loved One

If you are a surviving family member of a loved one who passed away from a fatal slip and fall accident caused by negligence, we can help you. Our team supports you by managing every aspect involved in the process of filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. 

I Had a Slip and Fall Accident. Do I Have a Claim?

Slip and fall accidents can happen in a wide variety of settings, from a shopping mall to a construction site. Most cases can be attributed to two main types of liability:

  • Negligence (where a property owner or individual fails to notice and rectify a potential hazard)
  • Carelessness (where the liable party caused the hazard)

Hazards include the following:

  • Clutter obstructing the floor, such as improperly secured cables or boxes
  • Uneven floor surfaces
  • Loose floor coverings
  • Poor lighting
  • Unattended spillages 
  • Poorly maintained public walkways
  • Excessive ice on public walkways
  • Faulty handrails

While these types of accidents may seem like a minor inconvenience, the reality is they can drastically change a victim’s way of life and work. We can help you to file a lawsuit against the negligent person who failed to keep the premises in a safe and hazard-free condition. 

Hiring a Lawyer: Are There Any Up-Front Costs?

Many people have concerns about the cost of hiring legal representation. We help our clients by providing our services on a no-win, no-fee basis. This means there are no up-front or out-of-pocket expenses for you to pay. We only recover our fees and costs when we achieve a favorable settlement or verdict on your behalf. 

What Is the Time Limit to File a Slip and Fall Injury Case?

If you are making an injury claim for a slip and fall accident, there is a time limit within which you must begin legal action or risk losing your right to pursue compensation. In Illinois, injured parties have two years to file per 735 ILCS 5/13-202

While this may seem quite a while, building a strong slip and fall injury case takes time. So, our team serving Oak Park recommends seeking legal advice sooner rather than later. The prompt intervention also allows your lawyer to gather and preserve vital evidence to prove your case.
