Discover Your Rights After A Slip-And-Fall

If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, you may have a number of questions about your rights. You may have heard about slip-and-fall lawsuits in the past, and you may be wondering whether they apply to your situation.

In many cases, a victim can file a premises liability lawsuit if he or she fell on a dangerous surface. Examples include:

  • Water on the floor
  • Ice
  • Broken sidewalks or floor tiles
  • Damaged stairways and railings

Slip-and-fall injuries can be quite severe, sometimes leading to long-term or permanent health issues. Head, hip and back injuries are common, and often require significant medical treatment.

Our law firm can help you file a personal injury lawsuit that will seek compensation for these injuries. If you have been injured on another party's property, contact our Peoria slip-and-fall lawyers. We can meet with you at a time and place of your choosing to determine whether you have grounds to pursue legal action.

Don't Hesitate To Seek Help

In some cases, victims feel reluctant to sue over a slip-and-fall incident, even if the injuries they suffered were serious. It is important to remember, however, that the injury happened not because of your own carelessness, but because of the carelessness of the building owner. The manager of the building failed to uphold his or her responsibility to provide you with a safe premises, resulting in an injury that was difficult or impossible for you to foresee.

By filing a premises liability lawsuit against the premises owner, you can do more than simply recover compensation for your injuries. You can also act as a powerful factor in convincing the building administrator to change his or her practices, ensuring that no other patrons are injured in the same way that you were.
