Will County Personal Injury LawyerSlipping and falling can lead to severe injuries that may have a significant impact on your life. Traumatic brain injuries, internal organ injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones are just a few of the potential injuries that can be sustained in a fall. If you or a loved one have been injured in a fall, you may wonder whether you have a valid personal injury case. This blog will discuss the main elements that must be present in order for a slip and fall injury claim to be successful.

Four Components in a Successful Personal Injury Case

In order to win a personal injury case, the victim must be able to prove that the four main components of negligence are present. These include duty, breach, causation, and damages.

  • Duty - The first component that must be present is duty. The plaintiff must show that the defendant owed them a duty of care. This means that the defendant had a responsibility to take reasonable precautions to prevent injuries. For example, business owners have a duty to keep their premises safe and free of hazards. Spilled liquids, unsecured rugs, and slippery floors are all examples of hazards that can lead to slip and fall accidents.


Premises Liability lawyer

For many people, going out to eat or visiting the local bar are some of the best ways to unwind after a stressful workday. Unfortunately, what should be a fun, relaxing evening can turn into a nightmare in an instant. If you or a loved one were the victim of assault, battery, or robbery, at a commercial establishment, you know just how quickly physical violence can escalate.

Often, physical attacks at businesses like bars and restaurants are caused or contributed to by inadequate security measures. Because businesses owe a legal duty of care to customers, these businesses may be held accountable through a premises liability claim.
