Experienced Counsel for Those Hurt by Sidewalk Defect Accidents

In our decades of determined legal advocacy for people hurt on dangerous property, the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid has seen many serious, life-changing injuries caused by falls. While most people think immediately of slippery grocery store floors, valid claims arise under a wide range of other circumstances, including:

  • Trip-and-fall accidents caused by known but unrepaired sidewalk and parking lot defects such as potholes or uneven, cracked or broken pavement
  • Slip-and-fall accidents caused by an unnatural accumulation of ice or snow and the failure to remove the danger or warn people away from the area

Illinois premises liability law puts specific emphasis on commercial property owner failures to provide a safe means of ingress and egress. In plain language, this means your claim may be especially strong if the dangerous condition that caused your fall was near the entrance or exit of a store, office or other establishment.

Serious, Determined Legal Action for Illinois Victims of Serious Falls

We do not pursue "frivolous" or minor premises liability cases. Instead, our injury attorneys are diligent in accident investigation, case evaluation and evidence gathering that gets results for people who have suffered:

  • Head trauma, concussions and other brain injuries
  • Hip fractures and other broken bones
  • Major knee, ankle, shoulder and other joint injuries that may require surgery and extensive rehabilitation

Essential components of your claim for financial compensation will typically include proving that your injuries are serious and that the property owner failed to exercise reasonable care to protect people lawfully on the property. Our Naperville lawyers are up to these challenges, as we have proven on many occasions.
