Lawyer For Dog Bites, Swimming Pool Accidents, And Store And Restaurant Injuries In Cook County, IL
If you were hurt on a property that is neither your own nor your place of employment, you may have a premises liability case. Such cases typically result from the negligence of the property owner, which creates unsafe conditions that lead to an injury. If you have suffered an injury on the property of another party, it is important to speak with a skilled personal injury attorney, so you understand your rights and options.

He works closely with his clients, spending the time necessary to thoroughly understand their case and develop the most practical and effective strategy toward a favorable outcome.
Common Types Of Premises Liability In Illinois
We represent clients for a wide range of premises liability cases, including:
- Slip and Fall Accidents: Slips, falls, and trips on floors that are wet or oily, and on exterior surfaces with an unnatural accumulation of snow and ice.
- Animal Attacks: Dog bites, severe cat scratches, and other injuries resulting from attacks by animals belonging to the property owner.
- Structural Defects: Injuries resulting from broken and uneven stairs, porch and deck collapses, and building or maintenance defects.
- Negligent Security: Injuries that occur because the property owner failed to provide adequate security. This often falls into the realm of intentional torts such as assault, battery, or rape.
- Swimming Pool Accidents: Serious injuries and drownings that happen because there was no lifeguard and/or the swimming area was poorly maintained.
- Toxic Torts: Injuries/illnesses that occur as a result of exposure to hazardous substances such as mold or asbestos within the property, or at your place of employment.
To determine negligence and establish liability for your injury, several factors must be examined, including:
- The seriousness of the hazard that led to the injury.
- How long the hazard existed.
- Whether or not the owner was aware of the hazard.
- If the owner was not aware of the hazard, whether or not they should have been aware.
- The status of the person entering the property (e.g., trespasser, licensee, or invitee).
