Things You Should Know

A wrongful death action in Illinois results anytime a person dies as the result of someone else's negligence. Wrongful deaths can result from a variety of circumstances including automobile accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice, defective products or numerous other situations. The legal system is designed to protect the rights of those who have suffered from the negligence of others. In most states, including Illinois, if the death of a relative was caused by the wrongful act of another, surviving family members have the right to financial compensation for the wrongful death. After the loss of a loved one, the last thing a family wants to think about is taking legal action. But in many cases, prompt action is required to investigate the circumstances and to preserve evidence. Waiting to retain legal counsel can be damaging to any future claims. It is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible following the death of a loved one that you feel may have been the result of someone else's mistake.

Slip and Fall

When you're going about your daily activities, you don't expect to get hurt. Shopping for the family, visiting a friend, walking through a parking lot or down the sidewalk, this is the stuff of everyday life. And these activities should never result in an injury - a costly injury that can result in serious medical procedures like surgery or hospitalization. If you've been injured because someone else failed to maintain his or her property, you're entitled to financial compensation.

Insurance companies are aggressive in defending these claims. They're a business, and that's how they make money. So we have to be just as aggressive to make sure that you get what you deserve. We know these companies inside and out. And we use this knowledge to make sure your life isn't disrupted because of the wrongdoing of others.

Things You Should Know:
Premises liability law is that which applies to people who own and keep property open to the public like stores, apartments, parking lots, sidewalks. The law requires that they keep their property safe for the public to use. If they don't, and you are injured as a result, the law provides that you should be compensated. Although the idea of a premises liability case may seem simple, many laws exist to protect the property owner.

Premises liability cases are brought against a person that "possesses" land or premises. These people invite the public onto their premises for commercial benefit; like a store or business owner. Store and business owners have a duty to warn or otherwise protect patrons from risks of harm. Stores and business should periodically inspect the premises for hazards. For example, a grocery store may be obligated to periodically check its floors for the presence of spilled or broken merchandise, and make sure that its products are not likely to fall from its shelves.

Businesses also have a responsibility to maintain the public spaces outside of their stores; like parking lots and sidewalks. Even if there's a management company or landscape company that has been contracted to do these things; like picking up fallen branches or shoveling snow. This also applies to landlords. Illinois premises liability cases can be brought against landlords who fail to provide all service and maintenance in relation to the housing.
