Uneven Pavement Injuries in Lake County
You are walking into a mall, retail store, or business, and suddenly, you trip over an elevated portion of the sidewalk and fall down hard onto the pavement. The fall leads to a serious injury, leading to painful operations such as orthopedic surgery and mounting medical bills. However, you should not have to be responsible for such costs if your accident was due to the negligence of the property owner. Uneven sidewalks and pavements are one of the most common slip, trip and fall injury cases in Illinois. Let a knowledgeable premises liability lawyer represent you and hold negligent parties responsible.

Skilled Lake County Trip-and-Fall Lawyer
Uneven pavement injuries often involve lacerations to the face, chipped and broken teeth, joint fractures, and broken wrists/arms that require ongoing reconstructive, oral, and/or orthopedic surgery (involving pins/rods). These procedures are costly and often keep you from work, costing additional expenses. We will do everything we can to work with all negligent parties and their insurance companies to seek the compensation that you deserve.
Uneven pavement injuries often occur in areas such as:
- Strip mall
- Retail stores
- Office buildings
- Parking lots
- Public sidewalks
It is very important that once an accident has occurred you take as many photos of your uneven pavement injury and/or of the location of the accident site and as soon as possible. There should be at least a three-inch elevation difference in injuries involving uneven pavement. These details must be documented, and photographs help these often difficult cases. Fortunately, we are very experienced in slip-and-fall cases in Illinois and can help no matter how complex your case may be. Unlike other law firms in the Lake County area, no case is too difficult for us to handle. In fact, we have taken many cases all the way through litigation when we can't reach an agreed settlement through negotiations.
