Illinois market sued by woman who fell on premises

A woman from Cook County slipped and fell in a Frankfort market on June 26, 2013, and she is now suing the market for the injuries she sustained in the fall. In the suit, the woman cited the market with negligence. She filed the suit with the Cook County Circuit Court on March 11, 2015.

At the time of the accident, there was a leaky ceiling in the building and a puddle from the leak on the floor. The plaintiff slipped on this puddle. The suit filed against the market claims that the managers and operators of the establishment were negligent and careless when they allowed this dangerous condition to go unattended.

The suit also stated that there was a lack of warning signs in the area and that inspections of the facilities were not attended to. In addition, the suit stated that the situation was not cleaned or repaired and that there were not enough safeguards in the vicinity to prevent the accident from occurring.

For slip-and-fall cases like this, dangerous conditions on private or public property are often to blame. Injured victims sometimes lose their cases because they did not use appropriate caution in the eyes of the law. On the other hand, the blame may fall on the owners or managers of certain establishments. Slippery entrances or lack of warning signs can cause serious personal injuries. In cases like this one, an attorney is usually able to review the details of the accident and the records of treatment to determine if the injured party deserves to receive compensation for their injuries, bills and trauma.
