The Consequences Of Premises Liability Injuries

The National Safety Council, a nonprofit organization with a history of more than 100 years, reports that, "In 2012, an estimated 89,000 unintentional injury-related deaths occurred in the home and community" in the U.S. Undoubtedly, a significant number of those deaths occurred in Illinois and specifically throughout Chicagoland.

Every year, people suffer fall injuries, burn injuries and other types of serious and catastrophic injuries in our state because of:

  • Premises defects
  • Bad lighting
  • Architectural defects
  • Construction defects
  • Inadequate security
  • Negligent maintenance and upkeep
  • Slip-and-falls on slippery surfaces

Dog Bite And Animal Attack Claims

In a dog bite injury claim, the liable party or parties may include a homeowner or property owner and/or the owner of the dog. Someone responsible for the care of children or security of guests may have neglected his or her duty. Our Chicagoland law firm can advise you on how to proceed as you seek compensation for:

  • Emergency care and follow-up medical treatment

  • Possible plastic surgery for scar mitigation, facial reconstruction or other therapeutic objectives

  • Psychological counseling or psychiatric care as needed to address post-traumatic stress and/or social maladjustment that may result from disfigurement
