Plainfield Slip and Fall Injury Attorney

New Lenox slip and fall accident attorney

Lawyer Helping Hold Property Owners Liable for Slips, Trips, and Falls in Naperville, Joliet, and Will County

While losing your footing and falling down may seem like a minor accident, these incidents can result in serious injuries and even death. In fact, most times they are not accidental. People often slip, trip, or stumble and fall because of the negligence of a property owner or the party who was in control of the property where the fall took place for things such as poor lighting, lack of handrails, or uneven stairs. In these cases, injured people can pursue a premises liability claim and recover financial compensation for their damages. To be successful, it is essential for victims to secure representation from a personal injury lawyer who is experienced in these types of cases.

Michael J. Lichner has over a decade of experience representing people who have been injured by others' negligence. He has obtained millions of dollars in compensation for his clients, and he is ready to aggressively fight for your rights and interests. Our firm has the resources to pursue claims or lawsuits involving large corporations and insurance companies, and we will not rest until you receive the compensation you need and deserve.

Compensation for Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries

Fall injuries may take place in a public area or a building such as a store, shopping mall, restaurant, or entertainment venue. Floors or walking surfaces may be slippery or damaged due to the negligence of the property owner, and customers or others who were legally allowed to enter and use the property may fall and suffer injuries as a result. Slip and fall injuries may occur when floors become wet due to a lack of floor mats in a building's entryways, spills that were not cleaned up in a timely fashion, or unnatural accumulations of snow and ice on sidewalks. Torn carpets, missing or damaged floor tiles, broken or uneven sidewalks, or potholes in a parking lot may lead to trip and fall injuries.

A fall on a sidewalk, floor, or pavement can result in multiple types of serious injuries, ranging from relatively minor sprains and bruises to broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and whiplash or other spinal cord injuries. A person is likely to suffer even more severe injuries or wrongful death if they fall from an upper level to a lower level. These incidents can occur because of defective safety railings, collapsing balconies, or dangerous conditions in stairwells, such as damaged stairs or inadequate lighting.

People who are injured by a slip and fall or trip and fall can pursue financial compensation from a property owner who failed to maintain a safe premises. If an injury took place at a private residence, an injured person may be covered by a homeowner's insurance policy, and other types of policies may provide coverage for injuries at public stores or buildings. When making an insurance claim, a person should be represented by an attorney who can ensure that any settlement offer will fully address all of their injuries and damages. A victim should be compensated for the costs of their medical treatment, lost income, and pain and suffering.
