Elgin Premises Liability Lawyer

Kane County Personal Injury Lawyers Representing those Injured in Slip and Fall Accidents

Elgin property owners have a responsibility to keep their land and buildings safe. When they fail to properly maintain walkways, stairs and other areas, serious injuries can result. If you have slipped and fallen on someone else's property, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries.

Whether you have fallen when a business failed to clear ice or snow from a sidewalk or have been assaulted because a property owner failed to keep the property secure, our Elgin slip-and-fall attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. Call 630-848-9294 or contact us online for a free consultation.

Types Of Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability claims encompass many types of accidents and can happen at businesses, homes and apartment buildings. We can help if you have been injured due to:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents: Falls can cause injuries so severe that they require multiple surgeries or become permanently disabling.
  • Failure to remove ice and snow: Falls involving ice and snow make especially strong cases if the property has an unnatural accumulation, such as a sidewalk that does not drain, a downspout that allows water runoff to a walkway or other preventable accumulations of moisture.
  • Inadequate security: Owners of business and residential properties have a responsibility to keep guests, residents and customers safe. Broken locks, failing to prevent fights and a lack of safety measures can result in liability for assaults.
  • Parking lot and sidewalk defects: If you have been injured or harmed because of defects in a parking lot or sidewalk, particularly near an entrance or exit, you may be able to hold the property owner accountable.
  • Dog bites: If you have been attacked by a dog, you may be able to hold the dog owner or the property owner where the dog was kept accountable for the severe physical and emotional injuries that can result from dog bites.

Premises liability claims can be challenging because the injured person must prove that a condition on the property was dangerous. In some cases, a dangerous condition is clear, but in others, safety experts must explain how a particular condition posed a hazard to others.
