Slip and Fall

Chicago, Illinois: Slip, Trip and Fall Attorney

When you enter another's home or a retail store, you expect that the property is safe, or if there is a danger, you will be warned. Unfortunately, serious and catastrophic accidents occur frequently due to a failure to maintain property or warn of dangerous property conditions. While some of those defects can be very small, they may lead to serious injuries. In fact, if it were a large defect, it would be noticed and avoided.

At Thomas M. Paris, Attorney and Counselor at Law, we offer experienced and strategic advocacy to protect the rights of our clients who have suffered serious injury due to failed maintenance and dangerous property conditions.

Call 312-759-1600 to speak directly with Thomas Paris, or contact us by e-mail to schedule an initial consultation regarding slip, trip, and fall injuries.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries: Serious Injury and Wrongful Death

Any slip and fall can lead to serious injury and result in lasting and permanent damage. Tragically, almost 50 percent of elderly women and men who suffer hip fractures follow a cascade of complications that lead to death within a year or two. If you or someone you love has been injured, consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.

Our premises liability practice includes cases involving:

  • Slip, trip, and fall
  • Ice and water spills
  • Failed security
  • Parking lot slip and fall
  • Store negligence
  • Accumulation of snow
  • Pedestrian injury
  • Elevation and height differences
  • Misdirected parking lot or garage traffic

Illinois Premises Liability Law

Premises liability claims are based on Illinois State laws and judicial decisions which are constantly changing. With extensive experience in this area of law, attorney Thomas Paris keeps abreast of the evolving area of law and will strive to effectively protect your rights, even in the most complex or difficult cases. Defense theories and arguments blaming the victim, someone else, or God are not new to Thomas M. Paris. He has the experience dealing with such defenses and his clients recovering even under difficult conditions.

When dealing with common issues of snow and ice removal, security issues and pedestrian walking hazards, we have the experience to pursue fair compensation under Illinois law. We have worked with experts across the country who are frequently published and have lectured internationally, and consulted by major corporations and institutions regarding complex negligence cases.

What if I am Partly at Fault?

Even if you were partly at fault for the injury, you may still have the right to recover against a private homeowner's insurance or commercial property owner. Contributory negligence law deals with liability when a victim is partially to blame for the injury. We have extensive experience in dealing with this defense and can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
