Slip-and-Fall Injury Lawyers Helps Injured Clients in Chicago

Quality injury lawyer for plaintiffs in premises liability cases

A sudden fall can do more than ruin your day; it can leave you with permanently disabling injuries, a mountain of medical bills and lost income while you’re unable to work. Fortunately, if your fall happened because of an unsafe condition on public or private property, you are eligible for compensation. The bad news is that slip-and-fall injuries are notoriously hard to prove, so to make good on your claim for compensation, you need a skilled premises liability attorney on your side. For more than 10 years, the Arami Law Office has helped injured parties throughout greater Chicago secure compensation for the harm they’ve suffered, such as:

  • Bone fractures
  • Chronic back and neck pain
  • Herniated and bulging discs
  • Partial and complete paralysis
  • Torn cartilage and ligaments
  • Traumatic brain injury

Who is responsible for a slip-and-fall injury?

Property owners and business proprietors have a legal duty to discover and cure unsafe conditions on their premises that could cause personal injury to visitors. If an owner cannot repair the hazard, there is a duty to provide warning. Common dangers on public and private property include:

  • Broken pavement
  • Dark passages and staircases
  • Loose steps and railings
  • Open manholes
  • Open elevator shafts
  • Unmarked or locked exits
  • Unmarked glass partitions
  • Vicious dogs
  • Wet, slick floors

Liability for unsafe premises attaches when the owner is negligent. To secure compensation, your attorney must prove:

  • A reasonable owner would have known about the hazard.
  • A reasonable owner would have taken steps to correct the hazard.
  • A reasonable victim may not have avoided the hazard.

The property owner doesn’t have to make the premises absolutely safe, just reasonably safe. Standards vary for different types of property based on the nature of the business or activity. Common venues for slip-and-fall injuries include:

  • Hotels and motels
  • Mass transit facilities
  • Parking facilities
  • Playgrounds and theme parks
  • Private homes
  • Restaurants
  • Shopping malls
  • Supermarkets

At the Arami Law Office, we’re prepared to assert your rights against private owners, corporate owners and public entities. Be aware that if your action is against a government entity, the time you have to file a claim is significantly shorter than if you were suing a person or corporation.
