Our Injury Lawyers Can Help You Get Full and Fair Recovery for You Injuries

Insurance companies and property owners often attempt to deny responsibility or settle premises liability cases for much less than they are worth. Additionally, Illinois laws place the burden of establishing proof that negligence was the cause of an accident on the victim.

To maximize your recovery, our injury lawyers will investigate every aspect of your claim, gather the evidence, and prepare your case for litigation. We gather medical bills and records, incident reports, photographs of the scene, statements from witnesses, and other relevant documentation to ensure that the evidence for your personal injury claim is presented in its entirety. Our meticulous preparation also helps uncover all responsible parties in your case so each entity that is liable for your injuries is held accountable.

Cases that Fall Under Premises Liability Law

Our injury attorneys represent clients who have been injured in all types of premises liability accidents. Dangerous property conditions can occur under a variety of circumstances, but some of the most common cases include:

  • Slip and Fall Accidents. The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) reports that more than 8 million hospital emergency room visits in the United States every year are attributed to slip and fall accidents. These types of incidents are the number one cause of accidental injury in the U.S. Most falls happen from ground level, and are caused from slippery surfaces, cluttered or debris-filled walkways, inadequate lighting and poor maintenance.
  • Defects and Disrepair. Poorly maintained sidewalks, dangerous stairways, worn or damaged furnishings, malfunctioning equipment, and missing safety devices like handrails are responsible for a large number of premises liability lawsuits.
  • Inadequate Security. When criminal acts cause harm to victims, property owners and managers can sometimes be held liable. By failing to provide adequately trained security personnel, ample lighting, or functional security hardware like locks, for example, a property owner may be able to be held liable for negligent security if a crime results in injuries.
  • Dog Bites/Animal Attacks. If a dog or other type of animal bites or attacks a victim, the property owner may be able to be held liable for injuries. Since owners are obligated to ensure that their property is free from hazards, including dangerous animals, premises liability law may apply.
