FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Typically, settlements for slip and fall accidents in Illinois range from a few thousand dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. For instance, minor injuries may result in lower settlements to cover medical expenses. More severe injuries that lead to long-term disabilities or significant financial losses can result in higher settlements. For accurate computation, you can call our slip and fall attorney to assess the specifics of your case and the potential accident claim settlement amount.

The statute of limitations for slip and fall cases is generally two years from the date of the accident. It’s crucial to initiate legal action within this time frame, as failing to do so may result in the forfeiture of your right to seek compensation. However, the deadline of the statute for minors or individuals with disabilities may be extended. You can always reach out to Pignatelli & Associates P.C. to ensure you meet the necessary deadlines and protect your legal rights as soon as possible following a slip and fall accident.

In the case of Baker v. County of Cook, a landmark settlement of $32,300,000.00 was awarded. This arose from claims including government negligence, hospital malpractice, medical malpractice, negligent supervision, personal injury, professional malpractice, brain injury, failure to treat, negligent tort, vicarious liability, and respondeat superior. The amount reflects the severity of the injuries sustained and underscores the responsibility of the defendants for the negligence that led to the plaintiff’s harm.

The validity of a slip and fall case typically involves assessing whether negligence played a role in causing the accident. For example, slipping on someone else’s property due to hazardous conditions that the property owner knew about but failed to address, may lead a valid case. It’s recommended to gather evidence, such as photos of the accident scene and witness statements to build the foundation of your case. Don’t forget to consult our experienced attorney to assess your case and advise you on the best course of action.

Seek medical attention promptly, even if you don’t believe your injuries are severe, as some injuries may not be immediately apparent. You should also report slippery surfaces incident to the property owner or manager and document the scene by taking photos or videos of the hazardous condition that caused your fall. You should also seek advice from Pignatelli & Associates P.C. to protect your rights and pursue maximum compensation for your injuries.

Yes, you may still pursue a slip and fall claim even if you were partially at fault for the accident. Illinois follows a modified comparative negligence rule, which means that as long as you are less than 50% responsible for the accident, you can still recover damages, although they may be reduced by your percentage of fault.
