Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can occur in Markham hotels, restaurants, and other crowded facilities. Slip and fall accidents are covered by the legal theory of premises liability, which provides that the owner or occupiers of a property are liable for accidents and injuries that occur on their property. Other types of accidents covered by the premises liability theory include: stairway accidents, elevator accidents, falling merchandise, negligent security, and swimming pool accidents.
Injuries can also occur while at jobs in Markham, IL. If you have been injured in a workplace accident, you are generally entitled to worker’s compensation benefits. If you have suffered a workplace injury or illness, you should promptly notify your employer. You may wish to notify the employer in writing and provide a brief description of the accident and resulting injury in order to properly document the workplace accident. Notice to your employer – either verbally or in writing – must be given to a supervisor or a member of the management team, and not a fellow co-worker.
If your employer does not provide you with the appropriate workers’ compensation benefits following the accident, you may wish to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.
