Kane County Premises Liability Attorneys Representing Clients Injured due to Slips, Trips, and Falls

Each year, tens of thousands of individuals are injured in slip and fall accidents. According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), slips, trips, and falls are the top reason for emergency room visits in the U.S. Many of these types of injuries occur while the victim is on the property of a third party. In such cases, the injury may be the result of the carelessness or negligence of the property owner. If you or someone close to you has suffered injury from a slip, trip, or fall, it is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer in your corner fighting hard to protect your legal rights.

At Patankar Law P.C., we have over 50 years of combined experience representing victims of slip and fall accidents and other types of personal injury in Aurora, Kane County, and throughout the Chicago area. We understand the complexities of these types of cases, and what it takes to prevail against even the most well-funded adversaries. We also understand that no two circumstances are exactly the same, and we take the time to thoroughly investigate the unique factors of each case and explore every potential legal avenue toward a favorable result.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

One of the major reasons slips, trips, and falls occur is because of dangerous conditions on a residential or commercial property, making it unsafe for guests and visitors. Some examples include:

  • Exterior hazards, such as snowy or icy sidewalks and walkways, cracked pavement, unmarked tree roots and stumps, and uneven ground;
  • Unmarked wet, oily, and slippery floors;
  • Broken steps and handrails in stairways;
  • Poor lighting in corridors and stairwells;
  • Unmarked loose objects on the floor or ground;
  • Unmarked holes or gaps in the floor or ground;
  • Construction or building code violations.

Damages in Slip and Fall Injury Cases

Slips, trips, and falls are often joked about, but they are not a laughing matter. These incidents can lead to severe injuries and even fatalities, and when a property owner is found to be negligent, the injury victim deserves to be compensated. Damages available in slip and fall injury cases may include:

  • Medical Expenses (both present and future)
  • Loss of Income
  • Loss of Earning Capacity
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Distress
  • Wrongful Death
