Slip and Fall Accidents

Suffering from a slip and fall accident can cause devastating effects and lifelong injuries. Unfortunately, there are thousands of injuries every year due to slip and fall accidents that occur in a wide variety of ways. Wet floors, defective stairs, a rough patch of ground and ice on the sidewalk are just a handful of ways that these accidents happen. Whether it is the property owner’s fault that you suffered an accident or not, you are entitled to rights. You can rely on our personal injury lawyers in Rockford to help you fight for the compensation you deserve!

Determining Liability

Determining liability is an important part of building a slip and fall case. One of the following must be true in order to build your case:

  • The owner or an employee must have known about the dangers and done nothing about it.
  • The owner or an employee must’ve caused the spill or the slippery surface or cause of the accident.
  • The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous surface because a “reasonable” person who is in charge of property management should have discovered it and fixed it.

As you can tell, it can be difficult to prove liability in a slip and fall case, but our experience makes it easy to help build your case. Proving fault is key to the success of your case, which is exactly what we can help you do.

Types of Slip and Fall Accidents

Our personal injury lawyers in Rockford understand that no two slip and fall cases are the same, and there are many different causes behind slip and fall cases. Wet floors and walkways, puddles, snow and ice all need a “wet floor” sign to help warn visitors. Cluttered aisles and fallen merchandise may also pose a threat to your safety. Uneven or damaged floors, elevators and escalators, slippery flooring materials, inadequate lighting, landscape hazards, potholes, ditches or damaged sidewalks are also possible causes of personal injury.

Very nice people! Brittany was amazing! She was able to get my mother's lien for her hospital bills negotiated down to a very reasonable price. She was with us every step of the way. My mother got her settlement from her car accident within 3 weeks of hiring them. Highly recommended!
