When You Need a Lawyer who Will Fight for You

Slip and Fall

Slip-and-Fall Lawyers Serving the Chicago Area

Homeowners, business owners, property owners and tenants have an obligation to make sure their properties are reasonably safe for people allowed onto the property. Failure to do so can lead to serious injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and even death. If you are the victim of a property owner's negligence, you need to obtain legal representation quickly to protect your rights.

Our attorneys at The Collins Law Firm in Naperville, Illinois, represent individuals who have sustained injuries as a result of a property owner or tenant's carelessness, including slipping and falling because of icy or wet surfaces, broken pavement, dog attacks, mold exposure, inadequate lighting, inadequate security, spills, and other unsafe conditions that property owners created or failed to address before it was too late.

It Is Important to Act Quickly When You are Hurt in a Slip-and-Fall Accident

In addition to seeking medical attention and making sure all of your treatment is properly documented, there are several steps that you must take to preserve critical evidence when you are hurt in a slip-and-fall accident or as a result of the conditions at a property. Those include:

  • Reporting your accident to a manager or building owner and making sure the report is properly documented.
  • Taking pictures of the unsafe conditions that led to your accident. If you wait, you will give the property owner time to make repairs and cover up any evidence.
  • Speaking with witnesses. It is important to get their contact information if you need to speak to them again.

★★★★★
Shawn Collins is a very talented lawyer, as are all the attorneys on his team. I've known and worked with Shawn for more that 30 years. Not only is he a top notch technical litigator but his communication skills are second to none. If anyone I know is ever in need of an attorney, Shawn is my very first recommendation. He gives very solid advice that goes beyond the law. He is someone you can trust to tell you the truth so you are not lead astray in the complex legal world. You really can't find a better advocate. E.M.

We were incredibly satisfied with our experience with The Collins Law Firm. We worked closely with Ed Manzke and found that he had a personal touch and truly got to know us in addition to being knowledgeable and effective in his field. The caring and individual attitude helped us tremendously throughout the entire process and we always felt like our case was in safe hands. We would highly recommend The Collins Law Firm for both its stellar work and dedicated employees. M.A.
★★★★★
My father recommended The Collins Law Firm to me after watching Shawn Collins and Ed Manzke at trial representing Lisle residents against Lockformer. For years, he told us courtroom tales about Shawn and Ed, citing their incredible skill as trial lawyers and how they put the huge Lockformer legal team to shame. So when my son was the victim of a wrongful death, they were my first and only choice. I can't say enough to truly express how grateful I am to The Collin's Law Firm for all that they did for me and my family. This amazing team advocated for me in my darkest moments, surpassing my expectations in every way. I will be forever grateful to Shawn and Ed. K.D.

I have worked with Rob, Shawn and The Collins Law Firm team in connection with both complex business transactions and litigation over the past several years. Shawn is far and away the best business litigation attorney I have worked with. Rob has been our lead attorney on M&A and corporate restructures, and he has delivered each time, and on time. I would highly recommend Rob to get the deal done! W.D.
