When Can You File a Slip and Fall Lawsuit? 

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere — whether you’re shopping, commuting, or enjoying some leisure time at a local museum or movie theatre, the risk of property owner negligence can mean that a serious accident can change your life in an instant. It’s estimated that in Illinois, almost 20% of workplace fatalities are attributable to slips, trips, and falls. When these accidents occur, you need to know how to get the compensation you deserve. 

Property owners, including individuals, businesses, and public entities, are legally obligated to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition, free from potential hazards that might lead to slip and fall accidents. Residential landlords also bear a responsibility towards the safety of their tenants and visitors on their property. Should they fail in this duty, resulting in injuries, you and your attorney can hold them accountable for the harm you’ve suffered. 

How Long Do I Have to Seek Compensation for a Slip and Fall in Chicago?

In Illinois, you typically have two years from the date of the slip and fall incident to initiate a lawsuit. Missing this critical deadline might jeopardize your ability to seek compensation for your losses. Furthermore, the circumstances of each case can vary significantly. You need a top-notch lawyer who understands the complexities of Illinois law and will work to determine the best course of action for your particular case. 

Compensation for Your Injuries

The compensation you can obtain depends on the severity of your injuries, if and for how long your ability to work is compromised, and a variety of other factors. However, in general, accident victims can recover economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Hospitalization
  • Lost wages, earnings, and income
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Wrongful death
