While the law protects the rights of property owners, the law also imposes duties and responsibilities on property owners. For example, a property owner must maintain a premises in a condition that is safe for authorized visitors. When a property owner fails to do this and a dangerous condition causes a serious injury or death, the victims are entitled to reasonable compensation.

Slip-and-fall injuries

When a property owner's negligence causes an injury, the injured person can seek compensation for medical costs and lost income as well as noneconomic losses such as pain and suffering. Such cases however, can pose complex factual and legal issues that require thorough investigation and analysis to identify the proper parties, the duties involved and the negligent conduct that caused the injury.

Snow and ice injuries

In Chicago, we are tough when it comes to living with ice and snow. We are used to it, and many of us actually look forward to winter. But a fall on ice or snow is nothing to smile about. A slip-and-fall can cause serious injuries that may require surgery and extensive recovery time. The legal duties imposed on landowners to protect against injuries from the snow and ice can be confusing. Our experience handling these cases has helped our clients recover for the injuries and suffering they have endured.

Inadequate security/dangerous premises

There is nothing more frightening than being alone and threatened in a place where you should be safe. Thankfully, in most instances, these fears never materialize. But when they do, and all too frequently in a city of this size, criminal assaults can happen, and if you happen to be a victim, the resulting physical and psychological injuries can last a lifetime.

Property negligence

It can happen in the blink of an eye — a slip-and-fall caused by poor lighting, a defect in the flooring, a gas explosion or other incident caused by the negligence of a property owner. Whether the injury occurs in a luxury Gold Coast high-rise, a rental home on the West Side, or a downtown office building, the injured person can claim compensation for financial losses and emotional suffering.

Injuries caused by dog bites and animal attacks

A dog bite or attack can result in injuries that last a lifetime. Not only does it result in scars and disfigurement, a dog attack can cause severe psychological trauma, particularly when the victim is a child.
