Premises liability claims on government property

A premises liability accident can happen anywhere, even on government-maintained property -- like sidewalks and roads. For example, it is not uncommon for serious accidents to happen as a result of a malfunctioning traffic light, or because of a traffic sign that was obscured by the overgrowth of vegetation and trees. Also, accidents can happen on poorly maintained sidewalks that have big cracks or large pools of water on them.

Failure to treat a medical condition

Medical negligence can happen in a lot of different ways in Illinois. In most cases, people think of medical negligence as a doctors' error that occurs during surgery. However, sometimes medical negligence is just as much about something that a doctor failed to do as it is about something he or she did wrong.
