Dedicated lawyers helping those with personal injuries in and around Cook, Lake, McHenry, DuPage and Will counties as well as the federal courts.
There are nearly 600 Walgreens locations in the state of Illinois. Amongst the locations, thousands of customers travel in and out each day. Walgreens is obligated to provide customers with a safe and hazard free shopping environment at every location. However, some of the thousands of customers who frequent the locations on a daily basis are exposed to hazards, the majority of which are the result of spills. If you or someone you know have been injured due to a slip and fall accident at Walgreens, contact the law firm of Newland and Newland, LLP.
