Slip and Fall Accidents in Illinois

Individuals and business owners have a responsibility to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition for the good of public safety. People who have been injured in a slip and fall injury have a right to recover for their injuries if their injuries resulted from the dangerous property conditions of a negligent property owner.

Unreasonably slippery surfaces that are wet or icy are one example of a dangerous property condition, but there are many types of dangerous property conditions which lead to accidents. If you have suffered a slip and fall accident and need to speak with an attorney, I encourage you to contact me, attorney James A. Payonk, Jr.

All Injuries and Wrongful Death

As an experienced personal injury lawyer, I have represented clients with a wide range of injuries. Throughout my career, I have handled injury claims related to back injuries, neck injuries, fractures, nerve and disc injuries, head injuries, and other serious injuries. If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence or wrongdoing of others, I can help. If you have lost a family member due to a fatal accident, I can pursue a wrongful death claim on your behalf.

In addition to seeking damage for new injuries caused by a slip and fall accident, the law also allows you to receive compensation and damages for preexisting conditions which have been aggravated due to a slip and fall accident.

Common Examples of Slip and Fall/Premises Liability Claims

Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, but the majority of civil suits involve commercial properties like parking lots, parking ramps, municipal/government property, city sidewalks, commercial stores, restaurants and hotels.
