IL accidnet lawyerEveryone crosses multiple thresholds and passes through numerous doorways every day without incident. Doors and doorways are built to provide structure and access to a room or establishment and are generally safe to travel through without much if any, concern or thought. Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents do happen – leading to serious injury that could have been prevented had the proper precautions been used. Businesses in particular, but in fact, all property owners have a legal duty to ensure all aspects of the premises are safe and working for guests and visitors. This means conducting reasonable inspections and fixing problems when discovered.

For the average homeowner, not enough people come in and out to create the kind of wear and tear stores and other companies open to the public experience, meaning most will never have an issue. Businesses, on the other hand, should perform regular inspections and maintenance on all aspects of the facility, including the entryway, because there are many more opportunities for things to break and cause an injury.

A recent example of the hazards doorways can present to customers occurred in Naperville when a man slipped and fell entering a gas station because of an unsecured mat. In addition to slipping on rugs and mats, entryways can have faulty doors or hardware that compromise traversing the area. Property may have liability for these kinds of injuries, and a discussion of what needs to be proven in these cases to obtain compensation will follow below.

slip and fall accident, DuPage County slip and fall personal injury attorney, DuPage County personal injury attorney, traumatic brain injury, personal injury claimMore than 930,000 residents call DuPage County home, and anyone who has lived here for over a year understands the significance in fluctuation of weather patterns. Everything from sunshine to snow causes damage to buildings and other structures.Therefore, it is especially important that landlords repair damages as soon as possible to precent tenants from being injured, or even killed, in slip and fall accidents. 

Potential Damage From a Slip and Fall

Slip and fall accidents occur when a person trips, slips, loses balance, or otherwise falls and an an injury results. Causes of slip and fall accidents may be due to any number of outside forces.

b2ap3_thumbnail_rear-ended-negligent-drivers-DuPage-County.jpgOne of the most traumatic life events is being involved in a car accident. Motor vehicle accidents take many forms, including the all too common fender bender and accidents involving excessive speed or impairment which can lead to high speed collisions or side impact accidents. Whichever type, car accidents can cause injuries and long term pain and suffering.

Rear-end accidents are no exception, and the injuries sustained by the impacted driver can be serious. The National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration reported that 28 percent of all crashes are rear-end collisions. This demonstrates how prevalent rear-end collisions are and how many negligent drivers share the roads with you.

If you were the victim of a rear-end collision caused by a driver who was not acting in a reasonable manner, you may be entitled to compensation—a monetary award for your injuries. Speaking with a respected personal injury attorney should be your first step in determining if you have a viable case.

b2ap3_thumbnail_premises-liability-DuPage-County.jpgSidewalks are frequently used in large metropolitan cities and communities. Moreover, if you shop at a stand-alone store, a strip mall, or even a large scale mall, you are likely to traverse a sidewalk somewhere on those premises.

While you may take for granted the bee-line to get into a store, you are at risk for serious harm if the business owner does the same and neglects to maintain his or her premises. Land owners must keep their sidewalks in a reasonable safe condition—a condition that would not cause injury to a pedestrian. If sidewalks are not kept safe, owners may be held accountable for injuries caused by unsafe conditions.

If you have been injured on a defective sidewalk, contact an experienced premises liability attorney to assess your rights and how to proceed further to potentially receive compensation for your injuries.

b2ap3_thumbnail_wrongful-death-actions-Illinois.jpgWhen a loved one dies unexpectedly in an accident, it can feel like nothing can make you whole again. This is an understandable and common feeling. Illinois law does attempt to make a victim’s family whole again by giving family members the option to file a wrongful death action in cases where the fatal accident was due to someone else’s negligence.

If your wrongful death action is successful, you could be awarded damages for your grief, sorrow, and mental suffering.
