Slip and Fall Accidents in Illinois
Slip and fall or “trip and fall” accidents can occur practically anywhere at any time. Common causes of these types of accidents include:
- Inadequate lighting;
- Uneven surface;
- Icy walkway;
- Unsafe stairway or ramp;
- Slippery spill on the floor; and
- Obstructed paths.
Proving a slip and fall case centers around establishing that there was negligence involved. Property owners have a duty to maintain their property and protect visitors from harm. If they fail to do so, they can be held liable for the result. If a property owner knows of a potential hazard, he or she must either repair the hazard or suitably warn visitors of the hazard. If a property owner does not know of a hazard but reasonably should have known, liability remains.
