DuPage County slip and fall accident lawyer

As December fast approaches, temperatures are dropping, and the snow is falling. While winter wonderlands are perfect for the holiday season, they can also be dangerous. Slip and fall accidents can be quite common around this time of year due to unsafe conditions on the streets, sidewalks, and other walking surfaces. These types of accidents may seem trivial, but they can cause serious injuries, including broken bones, bruising, and traumatic brain injuries. Illinois property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe and free from hazards, but there are some steps that you can take to prevent a winter slip and fall accident.

1. Watch Out for Black Ice 

Black ice can be one of the most dangerous winter conditions for both drivers and pedestrians. Due to its ability to blend in with the color of the pavement, black ice can be difficult to spot, especially at night. It is important to be cautious when crossing roadways in the winter. In addition, it is recommended to slow down, take your time, and avoid running or walking at a quick pace.

Bloomingdale slip and fall injury lawyer

Personal injury claims are not always the easiest cases to win. In a slip and fall or any case in which an injury occurs because of someone's negligence, the burden of proof falls on you, the plaintiff, not the defendant. This means you must be able to prove that the defendant is responsible for the injuries you are claiming to have sustained. Proving negligence can be a difficult process, and you do not want to make a mistake that could have been easily avoided. If you are pursuing a personal injury claim for a slip and fall case, be careful to avoid the following errors in order to increase your chances at receiving compensation:

Not Seeking Medical Attention

The entire premise of a slip and fall case is based on your injuries. You are trying to pursue compensation for injuries that you sustained because someone acted recklessly, and that negligence caused you to slip and/or fall. Seeing a physician is crucial, because it will provide a medical record of your injuries. You also need to make sure you are following your doctor’s orders and going to any follow-up appointments. Not seeking medical assistance can make it seem like your injuries are not as serious as you claim them to be.

 IL injury lawyerAnyone who has spent time in retail stores has seen the telltale signs that an accident happened, which is usually identified by the presence of a warning sign, orange cones, and/or ropes to cordon off an area. Often, these accidents are the result of some liquid spilling onto the floor, creating a slip and fall hazard that could endanger the safety of customers. By marking the area off, and taking steps to clean up the spill, the operators are acting responsibly and fulfilling their duty of care to keep the area open to the public free from dangerous hazards. Unfortunately, this level of attention and precaution is not employed at every store, and the result can be injured customers who slip and fall on substances present on the floor.

A woman recently sued Dollar Tree Stores Inc. after slipping and falling on a liquid substance left on the floor of an aisle during a visit to a Naperville location in April. Falling on a foreign substance while visiting a retail establishment is an all too familiar occurrence, and these companies need to be held accountable if negligence was involved. Premises liability law determines if a store owner/operator is responsible for an injury to a third party, and when it comes to a foreign substance on the floor, several factors influence whether a business may be found liable to pay compensation. An overview of how the law evaluates slip and fall cases involving foreign substances will follow below.
