Common Types of Premises Liability Cases

A premises liability claim can happen anywhere at any time. The most common occurrences of these types of claims include: 

Slip and fall injuries: if another party’s negligence created an unsafe environment that caused you to slip and fall, you could sustain a number of injuries, from broken bones to spinal cord injuries. A slip and fall can be the result of spills and slick floors, icy or poorly-maintained sidewalks or missing handrails.

Swimming pool accidents: each year, thousands of injuries occur and private and public pools. A lack of supervision, faulty equipment or ignorance for acceptable safety standards can lead to a range of swimming pool accidents, from falls on slippery surfaces and diving board accidents to drowning deaths.

Animal bites: pet owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. If you are bitten by an aggressive dog or other pet, you can sustain severe scarring and disfigurement. The pet owners should be held responsible for your injuries.

Rape and assault: poor lighting, a lack of security or broken locks can enable a perpetrator to attack you. If this occurs in a bar parking lot, hotel parking garage, or apartment complex, that business may be held responsible.

Retail accident: if a display falls or a shelf collapses, you could suffer serious head, neck or back injuries. A store owner or manager must make sure their store does not present a danger to consumers.

 

  Getting in an auto accident can be frightening and frustrating. Then you have to deal with the aftermath, too. There may be injuries, and there may be a seriously damaged car that you'll need to have repaired or replaced. Time lost from work, anxiety, pain, and a number of other issues can also show up, so it's not always a simple matter of having the car towed and going on with your life. If you need an auto accident lawyer, Chicago has options for you to consider, and you want to be sure you get the best attorney for your specific case and your needs.

    Whether you should go out and find the best auto accident lawyer Chicago can offer depends on several factors. You want to consider your injuries and the medical bills that have accumulated from them, along with what your insurance company will pay if you have uninsured motorists coverage. In many cases, that coverage is not enough to pay the medical bills from a serious car accident, and it may be in your best interest to sue the other driver in order to recover damages.
