Chicago Slip and Fall Accident Attorney Bradley T. Cheskes
A slip and fall accident is one that involves slipping, tripping or falling on someone else’s property due to a dangerous condition that the property owner knew of, or should have known of. Issues such as improper lighting, broken stairs or walkways, missing hand railings and worn carpeting/runners, snow & ice, and the like can cause severe injuries that often require surgery and leave long lasting effects.
However, simply tripping or falling on someone else’s property does not constitute an injury claim. The accident must occur due to the negligence of the premises owner or manager. Additionally, the injuries must be medically proven and verified to have occurred due to the property owner’s negligence.
These cases are often quite complex and you need the knowledge and skill of an experienced Personal Injury attorney to evaluate the cause of your fall, as well as the proper parties to pursue (property owner, property management, property maintenance, etc…) for your injuries. Bradley T. Cheskes has handled premises liability cases over the past two decades and can help you better understand your legal rights and options and help you successfully pursue a claim for your injuries.
