Chicago Slip-And-Fall Injury Attorney

One minute, you were going about your daily life. The next, you were in the hospital, facing increasing medical bills and the prospect of a long and expensive recovery. What are your rights?

There are laws designed to ensure that people who are innocent victims of property owner negligence do not have to bear the costs of their injuries alone. Making sure accident victims get fair compensation, however, requires the representation of an experienced premises liability lawyer.

People in Chicago turn to The Law Offices of John S. Eliasik because our attorneys offer experience from both sides of personal injury claims. First, as a lawyer for a large insurance company, John S. Eliasik learned when insurers approve claims for their full value — and just as importantly, why they deny them altogether. Now, in our plaintiff's practice, he uses this knowledge and experience fighting in court and at the negotiating table to help our Illinois clients make the financial part of their recovery a less stressful experience.

Think You Can't Possibly Have A Case? Think Again.

Many, if not most, premises liability claims (the legal term for slip- and trip-and-fall cases) start out as everyday situations. People can have a legal claim when:

  • They slip on a sidewalk that has been negligently maintained, or not cleared of snow or ice in a timely manner.
  • They walk to a store from a parking lot and are injured by negligence or even assault due to insufficient lighting and/or security.
  • They slip on a spilled liquid that was not blocked off and/or cleaned in a timely manner.

One benefit of choosing our Chicago slip-and-fall injury firm to handle your claim is that we know how to quickly obtain the evidence — camera footage, cleaning logs and maintenance records — that often determines whether a premises owner was negligent, and therefore how much compensation a victim is entitled to receive. We will work vigilantly to ensure that you receive every penny you deserve for your medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
