Slips & Falls
WERE YOU INJURED FROM A SLIP OR TRIP AND FALL?
Slipping, tripping or falling can cause very serious injuries, and in some cases can even be fatal. Property owners have a duty to act reasonably in maintaining their property, meaning a responsibility to keep their property safe for visitors under the Illinois Premises Liability Act. This applies to commercial property owners such as retail stores, restaurants, bars and taverns, homeowners, or any other property owner. Slip/trip and fall injuries can also can be caused by unsafe construction sites, trip hazards on public walkways and sidewalks, and faulty or missing manhole covers. Some examples of common trip hazards include electric cords that are unsecured or cross a pathway, clutter, broken stairs, poorly lit stairs, faulty or missing handrails, uneven or poorly maintained concrete walkways, poorly maintained gutters which could create an unnatural accumulation of ice on a walkway, loose carpeting on stairs, wet floors, and poorly places or secured floor rugs or mats.
