Slip and Fall Accidents Attorney in Chicago, IL
Slip and Fall Accidents Overview
Whether a slip-and-fall accident happens inside a grocery store, on some one's stairs or while walking in an icy parking lot serious injuries oftentimes result. The Chicago slip-and-fall accident attorneys at Grazian & Volpe, P.C., have decades of experience handling personal injury cases.
When a slip- or trip-and-fall occurs, it is extremely important for the victim to document as much as possible about what caused the fall. Photos of spills or cracks in pavement can help you prove your case. Take a picture your camera phone. Get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses. Check with the location to determine if there are video surveillance tapes available. Most people clean up or fix their property after an accident, and once the scene has changed, evidence of what it looked like and what caused your accident may be lost forever.
