Man suffers personal injury after fall in Illinois store

When stores, restaurants and other retail operations clean and maintain their property, they must take caution to eliminate dangers and potential risks to customers. When they do not, harmful slip-and-fall accidents can result in serious injuries and medical expenses for an employee or victim. A man has recently filed a lawsuit with the assistance of a personal injury attorney against an Illinois store following injuries he suffered after a slip-and-fall accident.

Reportedly, the man entered the store very early in the morning. When he entered, some of the employees were using a machine to clean a section of the store. The cleaning machine required the use of water, and the man reported that some water had leaked onto the floor. Despite the cleaning, the man alleges that no warning signs were present to warn him of possibly slippery floors.

He claims that he was unaware of the slippery floor and fell as he was shopping near the cleaning machine. The man reports injuries as a result of the fall and is seeking monetary compensation of $100,000 to cover his medical expenses. The extent of his injuries and required medical treatment was not reported.

While some victims of slip-and-fall accidents may be able to walk away with minor bruises, others may suffer extensive injuries. Unfortunately, health care in Illinois and across the country is expensive and medical bills can quickly result in financial stress for a victim. When injuries result due to the possible negligence of another, a personal injury attorney can advise victims of their legal rights to file a premises liability lawsuit in civil court.
