Illinois Woman Injured in Slip and Fall Accident




Illinois Woman Injured in Slip and Fall Accident

A woman living in Illinois filed a personal injury lawsuit against Helmkamp Construction, claiming she suffered serious injuries during a slip and fall accident at one of its construction sites.

According to the lawsuit, when Alicia Wiley, a Regents Bank employee, visited one of the sites being remodeled by the construction company, she fell and sustained personal injuries, including:

  • Permanent, disabling injuries to her back, arm and leg
  • Severe physical pain
  • Mental anguish
  • Hefty medical expenses
  • Lost wages, lost ability to work

Injured Woman Seeks Compensation for Losses

Wiley is seeking compensation for her losses, and argues her slip and fall accident was a direct result of the defendants’ negligence. In addition to Helmkamp Construction, the following individuals and companies are named as defendants in the case:

  • Helmkamp Construction’s project manager, Rob Jhones
  • Burr Wolff
  • First Sates Investors

Suit Blames Defendants’ Negligence

The lawsuit states the above defendants were negligent, and as a result, should be held accountable for Wiley’s injuries. They were negligent, because they:

  • Failed to keep a proper lookout for individuals on the jobsite
  • Failed to maintain the walkways so they could be used safely
  • Failed to provide a safe environment
  • Failed to warn Wiley and other visitors of the dangers
  • Failed to supervise workers on the site

Wiley is seeking sums in excess of $300,000 for the physical, emotional and financial losses she incurred as a result of her injuries. The personal injury lawsuit was filed Dec. 15 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
