Repairman falls 15 feet down elevator shaft at Chicago hotel

slip and fall accident lawyer

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, from homes and sidewalks to supermarkets and restaurants. They can also occur in workplaces. In a recent case, an elevator technician was seriously injured on the job in a slip and fall accident at a hotel in Chicago, Illinois.

The 42-year-old man was doing maintenance work at the DoubleTree Hilton in Streeterville when he fell down an elevator shaft. He broke his foot after falling around 15 feet. The hotel’s general manager said the technician worked for Anderson Elevator Company. The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Many workers are required to go to other properties as part of their jobs. For instance, electricians are sent to locations that their employers do not own. If a person is hurt in a slip and fall accident on a property they visit for work purposes, the property owner can potentially be sued for premises liability. The injured employee may also be eligible for workers’ compensation.

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you deserve to get compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs.
