Were You Injured On Another Party’s Property?
Accidents that occur on another person’s or entity’s property are called premises liability accidents. They can happen anywhere, including on personal property, public property and commercial property. These cases can be complex, so it is important to work with lawyers who have the experience you need.
Premises liability cases often raise complicated issues about the duty of property owners to those on their property. At Wise Morrissey, LLC, our lawyers effectively bring claims for compensation against the person owning or controlling the property at the time of the injury. We know the right questions to ask property owners (such as whether the injury occurred to an invited guest or whether the owner took any precautions or warned of potential dangers existing on the property) to build a successful case. We have been helping people in the Chicago area for more than a decade.
The Dangers Of Premises Liability Accidents
Premises liability cases include:
- Slip- and trip-and-fall accidents
- Open hazards such as swimming pools
- Dog bite cases
- Negligent security
The injuries caused by these types of accidents can be catastrophic or fatal. Falls can cause broken bones, head injuries and spinal cord injuries. Dog bites may result in permanent scarring, disfigurement and crushed bones. Victims of negligent security may be robbed or assaulted.
If you suffered injuries in any type of Illinois premises liability case, you will need compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our experienced attorneys know how to navigate the complex laws governing these cases.
