Why Let Willens & Baez handle your Chicago Slip and Fall Accident?
A slip and fall accident often requires a protracted recovery and sometimes, chronic problems that last a lifetime. At Willens & Baez we make sure your compensation covers your current and future medical bills, rehabilitation, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. The store’s insurance company won’t research your real needs like we will. We know how to verify your claim to assure you receive a settlement that secures your future. Every store, shop, and business is required to keep and maintain liability insurance and property insurance on their business. When their negligence leads to your injury you have a right to compensation. Their insurance company may not agree, but that is the way they are. We don’t let them escape their responsibility.

Slip and Falls in Restaurants as a Patron
Slip and falls in restaurants are a mainstay of slapstick comedy, but in real life they are often anything but funny. You may have suffered serious injury, including broken bones, damaged spinal discs, or serious joint injuries that not only require medical care: they may cause significant pain and prevent you from working.
In many cases, you may be able to get compensation for your injuries with a premises liability lawsuit. After all, restaurant owners have a responsibility to provide their customers with a safe environment in which to congregate, consume food, and, ultimately, pay the restaurateur. When they fail to do this, they can be held responsible.
It’s important to document the circumstances of your injury, because slip and fall injuries are often disputed. We need to be able to prove that the owner or his employees knew or should have known about the condition that caused your injury, because:
- It had previously been reported (witnesses to your injury can often confirm this)
- It was caused by an employee (such as food or drink spilled from a tray)
- It was an expected hazard (such as a wet floor inside the door during rain)
- It developed slowly and should have been detected if the owner practiced reasonable diligence (such as a broken concrete stair)
