Holiday Season Slip and Fall Accidents in Chicago

Holiday Season Slip and Fall Accidents in Chicago

Let’s face it, snow and ice are just a way of life during winter in Chicago. Thanks to slippery surfaces, walking becomes more of an adventure with an increased risk of falling.

Slip & Fall Accidents that May Occur

Falls happen, no matter where you are. Commonly, holiday slip and fall accidents happen at your home or at stores and public buildings. Perhaps the store neglected to put salt on the walkway, or mud accumulated in an entryway. Either way, you fell and received injuries.  If injured in a recent slip-and-fall accident due to snow or ice on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability claim that Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys can help you with!

Can I Sue the City of Chicago for My Slip and Fall Accident this Winter?

Slip and fall accidents and their liability can be complex when it comes to icy sidewalks. Sidewalks not adjoining commercial or private property are technically the responsibility of the city, state or federal government.

Different municipalities have unique regulations when it comes to sidewalk maintenance. Occupants, landlords and building owners are expected to clear snow and ice from the sidewalks adjoining their property.  

Unfortunately, liability is tricky, so you’ll want to make sure you have some of the best legal defense by your side.
