Chicago Premises Liability Attorneys
Standing up for the rights of injured accident victims
Personal injuries can happen in a number of different ways, and many injuries occur because of a dangerous hazard that exists or existed on another person’s property. Property and business owners have the legal duty to inspect and maintain their property so that it is reasonably safe for any visitors or patrons. Additionally, if hazards do exist, they must provide adequate warning so that visitors can take necessary care. When property owners do not live up to this duty and injuries occur, they should be held liable for their negligence under premises liability law.
If you have suffered an injury on another party’s property, you should call the Salvato & O’Toole Law Offices at 312-583-9500 to see if you have a premises liability case.
Handling a wide variety of premises liability claims
Premises liability cases can involve a wide array of accidents since injuries can occur on someone else’s property or business in many different ways. Some common examples of accidents that lead to premises liability claims include as follows:
All of these accidents have the potential to cause serious and sometimes catastrophic injuries to victims.
We help victims of slip and fall accidents
The majority of premises liability claims arise after a victim slips and falls and suffers injury. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), approximately 8.9 million individuals go to emergency rooms in the United States every year. Injuries suffered in slip and falls can range from broken bones to traumatic brain injuries to spinal cord injuries, and many of these injuries require extensive and costly medical treatment. Negligence of a property owner can lead to slip and fall accidents in many different ways, including:
- Failing to clean up spills
- Leaving objects in walkways
- Having uneven or overly worn flooring
- Having unsecured or bunched carpets
- Not having electrical cords secured to walls
- Not adequately clearing snow or ice in a timely fashion
- Failing to warn visitors of slippery or wet floors
- Failing to warn of step-offs
- Having dangerous staircases
Though slip and falls are often considered to be relatively minor accidents, victims can sustain severe injuries that may have a long-lasting effect on their lives.
