Premises Liability

Aggressive Premises Liability Lawyers Serving Chicago

Accidental injuries can happen anywhere. You can be out shopping or running errands, or enjoying an outing with family or friends, when the unexpected happens. It could be a fall on a wet floor, or being struck by or against a product or fixture. Even seemingly minor mishaps can result in serious and potentially disabling injuries, leaving you with heavy medical expenses and preventing you from working or engaging in activities and interests you once enjoyed. At Arami Law Office, our experienced Illinois premises liability attorneys understand that what is often thought of as an ‘accident’ is actually the result of another’s reckless or negligent conduct. We can assist you in holding property owners and managers accountable for the conditions leading to your accident, so that you can get the compensation you need to recover.

Illinois Premises Liability Laws

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 30 million accidental injuries requiring medical treatment occur each year in the United States. Among the most common causes of these injuries are slip and fall accidents, being struck by or against an object, and accidents where someone is cut or pierced by a sharp object. These accidents often occur in public places, and when they do, the property owner or manager may be held liable for damages under the legal theory of premises liability. The Illinois Premises Liability Act (740 ILCS 130/1) states that owners or occupiers of a property have a legal duty to provide a reasonable level of care in making sure conditions on that property are safe to visitors. Examples of premises liability accidents include the following:

  • A slip and fall injury as the result of a wet floor, uneven sidewalk, or cluttered walkways.
  • Being struck by or against an object as the result of loose fixtures, falling objects, or poorly designed shelving.
  • Being cut or suffering a puncture wound as the result of broken glass or sharp edges.

Other types of accidental injuries in which an owner or operator may be liable include those resulting from fires or faulty wiring, exposure to harsh chemicals or dangerous substances, and acts of violence that occur as the result of a lack of safety precautions.

Aggressive Legal Representation For Injured Victims

When dealing with personal injuries, it is important to be aware that even a minor accident can result in serious damages. Symptoms may take weeks or even months to appear, and it can take time to fully realize the impacts your injuries may have on your quality of life or your ability to work and perform job related tasks. At Arami Law Office, we can assist you in getting compensation for your injuries, either through an insurance settlement or by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Under Section 735 of the Illinois Compiled Statutes, the circumstances surrounding your injuries may entitle you to the following types of compensation:

  • Medical expenses, including physical rehabilitation and the costs for ongoing treatments;
  • Lost wages, including loss of future earnings and benefits;
  • Pain, suffering, and mental anguish as the result of your injuries;
  • Compensation for scarring, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment in life;
  • Punitive damages, which is a dollar amount meant to punish a particularly reckless or negligent at fault party.
