Injured in a Trip and Fall Accident?

A trip and fall accident can take place when a product falls off a store shelf.  It can occur when a crack of as much as 3/8th inch rises in a walkway.  It can happen where stairs are uneven.  The injuries can be serious as the walker moving with considerable momentum plunges suddenly to the floor. Such injuries could include sprained and broken limbs, head injuries, back injuries, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.  If you have suffered a trip and fall accident, you may be due compensation.  You are urged to contact a Chicago personal injury attorney.

Duty of Care to Prevent Trip and Fall Accidents

Trip and fall accidents may happen in apartment buildings, stores, schools, streets, malls, restaurants, and sports stadiums.  The owners and managers of such facilities have a duty of care to visitors to prevent these accidents.  If a store product falls to the floor, the store management has a duty to pick up the product within a reasonable time after observing it. In the case of cracks in walkways, there is a duty to regularly inspect for such dangers and to initiate speedy repairs. Until the repair is made, the management needs to post warnings such as yellow tape or sawhorse barriers.  Where owners and managers fail in their duties, they are liable for injuries that result.
