Lawyers Helping Recover Damages for Slip and Fall Victims in DuPage County

A slip and fall accident can occur when a person slips, trips, or otherwise loses their footing due to a slippery or dangerous surface or other hazards, causing them to fall down and suffer injuries. These accidents can lead to multiple types of serious injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and back or spine injuries. If you or someone you know has been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be eligible to pursue compensation from a negligent property owner or another party who failed to protect your safety.

At Khan Nayyar & Associates, LLC, our experienced personal injury attorneys can help you investigate the circumstances surrounding a slip and fall accident and ensure that you take the proper steps to recover the compensation you deserve. We will work closely with you to gather evidence demonstrating that someone else's negligence was responsible for your injuries. We will build a strong case on your behalf, negotiate with insurance companies or other parties, and pursue litigation if necessary to ensure that you will be able to obtain the full amount of compensation that you deserve.

Common Types of Slip and Fall Accidents

If you have been injured due to a slip and fall, you may be able to pursue a premises liability claim against the owner of the property where the accident occurred. Property owners have a legal duty to maintain reasonably safe premises and to warn visitors of any potential hazards. When a property owner fails to take the proper measures to protect the safety of visitors, they may be held liable for injuries that occur as the result of their negligence.

Some common situations in which slip and fall accidents may occur include:

  • Wet or slippery floors - Accidents may occur at stores, restaurants, or other businesses if the proper measures are not taken to prevent slipping hazards. For example, if the proper floor mats are not used to prevent water from being tracked into a building during rainy or snowy weather, floors may become unreasonably slippery. A store or restaurant owner may also be liable for accidents that occur because of the failure to clean up spills promptly or warn visitors about slippery floors.
  • Damaged sidewalks and parking lots - Outdoor walking surfaces may become damaged over time, leading to uneven surfaces, large cracks, potholes, or other hazards that could make fall accidents more likely. Property owners may be at fault for accidents that occur because they failed to repair these issues or because they did not provide sufficient lighting to ensure that people could see and avoid hazards.
  • Snow and ice - Property owners should take appropriate measures to ensure that outdoor surfaces are reasonably safe in the winter. In many cases, this includes clearing snow and ice from sidewalks or ensuring that the right anti-slip products have been used on parking lots and other areas where slip and fall accidents may be more likely. Illinois law states that a property owner may be liable for injuries that were caused by an unnatural accumulation of snow or ice, such as a sidewalk that has frozen over because drainage water was improperly diverted from a building's gutters.
  • Dangerous stairs and stairwells - Fall accidents can be especially dangerous when they occur on stairs, and a person may fall to a lower level and suffer multiple types of serious injuries. A property owner may be responsible for injuries that occur because they failed to fix broken or damaged stairs, did not provide sufficient lighting in stairwells, or did not provide the proper handrails.
