Oak Brook Slip and Fall Accidents Attorneys
Dedicated Premises Liability Lawyers Serving Hinsdale, Western Springs, and Burr Ridge
Property owners have a responsibility to maintain a reasonably safe environment free from hazards. If you slip and fall as a result of dangerous conditions on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to damages for your injuries. This area of personal injury law is called premise liability. Owners are liable for any “unnatural” hazard on their property that causes an injury to another person. At the Law Office of Martoccio & Martoccio, our attorneys have decades of experienced handling slip and fall cases. We work closely with our clients, explain all legal options, and help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries.
Proving Slip and Fall Injury Cases
A valid personal injury case does not arise from every trip, slip or fall. In order to prove liability in a slip and fall injury case, the plaintiff must prove a number of things including that:
- The defendant is the owner of the property where the incident took place
- There was a dangerous hazard (i.e. spilled water or a loose railing) on the property
- The owner knew about the dangerous hazard
- The owner had time to fix the hazard
- The owner failed to fix the hazard
- The hazard caused the plaintiff to fall
- The plaintiff’s injuries were sustained as a result of the fall
