Oak Lawn Legal Counsel for Slip and Fall Victims
Each year, some 8 million Americans seek emergency medical attention for fall-related injuries. Of these, more than one million suffered injuries caused by a slip and fall or trip and fall. Slip and falls are also among the most common workplace injury claims and are a leading cause of occupational injury for older workers. While many slip and fall injuries are relatively minor, others can result in:
- Broken bones, including hip and shoulder fractures;
- Dislocated joints;
- Head, neck, and traumatic brain injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries; and
A large majority of slip and fall accidents occur on commercial property, including retail stores, supermarkets, and shopping centers. They can, however, happen just about anywhere, and when they do, the owner or occupant of the property may be liable for any injuries sustained. Business owners, homeowners, and even local, state, and federal government entities are responsible for the safety of those who are invited or permitted to be on their property.
Proving Your Slip and Fall Case
Attorney Allen N. Schwartz and his team provide responsible representation to those who have been injured in slip and fall accidents. If you have suffered injuries in such a fall, we will work to get you the compensation you need to put your life back on track. To prove slip and fall liability, an injured victim must show that:
- The defendant was responsible for the property where the fall occurred;
- There was a hazard on the property, including a slippery floor, damaged tiles, etc.;
- The defendant knew or should have known about the hazard;
- The defendant did not address the hazard; and
- The hazard directly caused the fall and subsequent injuries.
