Chicago Slip and Fall Accidents Attorneys

Construction sites present a large number of dangers and risks. However, employers and employees both can take precautions in order to ensure the workplace is as safe as possible. When construction workers forget or ignore these safety measures, it can pose a serious threat to anyone working on the construction site. In 2015, 937 worker deaths occurred on construction sites, and 1 in 10 construction workers suffers from an injury in any given year. One primary cause of these deaths and injuries is falls on the worksite. Falls can result from unsafe working conditions, neglect, or carelessness.

Slip and fall accidents are a serious problem that can cause injuries as minor as scrapes and strains, to much more serious injuries, such as broken bones, brain injuries, or even death. It is the job of your employer or job site owner to prevent the unsafe conditions that cause slip and falls. If they have neglected to do this job, they should be held responsible for the injury that they caused. The slip and fall accident attorneys at Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC are prepared to help you fight to receive the compensation you need after your accident.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slipping and falling can happen anywhere and to anyone. We live in a world that is full of hazards, and we are often preoccupied with our friends, cell phones, and other distractions while we are walking. This lack of attention can lead to a high number of falls merely from our own clumsiness. However, another person may be at fault for your slip and fall if the problem that caused you to fall should have been prevented or repaired by the owner. Prevention is especially important on construction sites, where risk and danger increase by the nature of the work. A number of different kinds of obstructions or problems may cause slip and falls. Such hazards include:

  • Uneven walking surfaces
  • Obstructions, such as debris, tools, or cables
  • Adverse environmental conditions
  • Improper signage
  • Lack of lighting
  • Ramps not constructed to code
  • Improperly cleaned spills

It is essential that your employer is aware of any possible dangers or obstructions in walking paths and corrects them as soon as possible. If your employer is negligent, your injury from a slip and fall may be their responsibility.

Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.

Dear J.B. ,
I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me. Many lawyers “brag” , about the amount of settlements they get for their clients, on their T.V. commercials . You, got me more then these lawyers “brag” about. Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,

- J.F.
