Evanston Slip and Fall Accident Attorney

 Slip & Fall The slip and fall accident attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC work diligently to hold negligent property owners and employers accountable when they fail to meet their duty of care to those who occupy or visit their properties, or who work under their supervision. These types of accidents can result in some of the more severe injuries we encounter, especially when falls from considerable heights are involved. It is our goal to ensure that every victim has access to the compensation needed to help him or her afford the cost of medical care, long-term rehabilitation, and any lost wages.

How Slip and Fall Accidents Happen in

A slip and fall accident and hit you entirely out of the blue and change your life forever afterward. The physical pain and emotional suffering that can follow are unwarranted because property managers must make sure that guests have access to a safe environment.

Here are some of the causes of these tragic accidents.

  • Inclement or wintry weather— it is an expectation that property owners in Illinois be prepared for all kinds of hazardous weather, including snow, sleet, and freezing temperatures. Parking lots must be cleared, walkways shoveled, and interior floors kept dry to protect tenants and guests.
  • Defective staircases— it is essential that staircases are regularly inspected to make sure that they are free from hazards, such as loose steps, poor lighting, and objects that may cause a fall. When someone is injured because of a poorly maintained staircase, the property owner may be held liable.
  • Poor lighting— providing adequate lighting is essential to guarantee the safety of others, as it allows people to see a potential trip or slip hazards. Poorly lit entrances, exits, hallways, and staircases make it possible for people to fail to notice a wet floor, a patch of ice or an object in their walking path.
  • Defective balconies— a balcony collapse can be tragic, and usually preventable when property managers ensure its construction design adheres to current building codes and are equipped with proper guardrails to keep people from falling over the side.
  • Poorly maintained walkways and parking lots— potholes, uneven pavement and other common hazards that arise from poorly maintained parking lots and sidewalks can be contributors to an accident.
  • Failure to warn of hazards— wet floors, open elevator shafts and maintenance work that could place people at risk are all hazards that people need to be aware of so they can avoid the risk. Failure to warn of these dangers is irresponsible, and property owners can be held liable.
  • Workplace accidents— some work environments are filled with hazards, increasing the chance that workers will be injured. When proper safety measures are not taken, an employer can be considered responsible when a worker is involved in an accident.
Slip and Fall Accidents the Cause of Very Serious Injuries

Numerous types of injuries can result from a slip or fall, from minor bumps and bruises to life-changing trauma to the brain, spine or back.

Following are some of the different injuries we encounter when we represent the victims of premises liability accidents or workplace negligence.

  • Broken bones— whether falling from a great height or just tripping and falling to the ground, it is possible for victims to suffer severe fractures that can sideline them for months while adding the financial burden of paying for expensive corrective procedures.
  • Traumatic brain injuries— these injuries can go unnoticed for some time because they are often asymptomatic until the damage has been done and it is too late. Complications can include cognitive impairment, neurological disorders and the loss of coordination.
  • Nerve damage— those suffering from nerve damage following an accident may lose sensation in the affected limb, lose motor function or experience tingling or shooting pain.
  • Death— in the unfortunate event that a victim dies from his or her injuries, his or her family may seek compensation on the grounds of wrongful death if they can prove that the accident was the result of negligence on behalf of a property owner or employer.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
