Naperville dog bite injury lawyer

Dogs continue to be one of the most popular types of household pets for many reasons. Typically, dogs have a good-natured, people-loving demeanor, which is why they are common family pets. Even still, dogs are animals, and people often forget that they can also be unpredictable and dangerous at times. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 4.5 million individuals are bitten by dogs every year and more than 800,000 of those people seek medical treatment for their injuries. Unfortunately, children make up a rather large percentage of bite victims, around half, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

Why Do Dogs Bite?

There are a number of reasons why a dog might bite a human. Most of the time, when a dog bites someone, it is because the dog is reacting to something. The only way dogs can communicate with humans is through physical actions. Biting is often a dog’s response to a stressful or scary situation. Animals sometimes bite if they feel threatened by something. Dogs can also bite because they are sick or in pain due to an illness or injury.

Naperville slip and fall injury lawyer

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere at any time. There are many reasons for slip and fall injuries, such as inadequate lighting, substances on the walkway, poor or damaged flooring, or obstacles on the floor that cause a tripping hazard. Thousands of Americans suffer from slip and fall injuries each year. According to the National Safety Council, approximately 9.2 million people were treated in emergency rooms for fall-related injuries in 2016. Although a lot of people might consider them minor, injuries from slips or falls can actually be quite severe. Common injuries from slips and falls include muscle strains, sprained ankles and wrists, bone breaks and fractures, joint dislocations, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even death in certain scenarios. In many cases, these slips and falls are due to negligent property owners, but what does negligence mean, and how can it be proven?

Duty of Reasonable Care

According to the Illinois Premises Liability Act, each property owner has an obligation to make sure their property is reasonably safe for occupants. This is called the duty of reasonable care. This means property owners have the responsibility of making sure their property is free of hazards that a “reasonable person” would deem to be dangerous.

 IL injury lawyerAnyone who has spent time in retail stores has seen the telltale signs that an accident happened, which is usually identified by the presence of a warning sign, orange cones, and/or ropes to cordon off an area. Often, these accidents are the result of some liquid spilling onto the floor, creating a slip and fall hazard that could endanger the safety of customers. By marking the area off, and taking steps to clean up the spill, the operators are acting responsibly and fulfilling their duty of care to keep the area open to the public free from dangerous hazards. Unfortunately, this level of attention and precaution is not employed at every store, and the result can be injured customers who slip and fall on substances present on the floor.

A woman recently sued Dollar Tree Stores Inc. after slipping and falling on a liquid substance left on the floor of an aisle during a visit to a Naperville location in April. Falling on a foreign substance while visiting a retail establishment is an all too familiar occurrence, and these companies need to be held accountable if negligence was involved. Premises liability law determines if a store owner/operator is responsible for an injury to a third party, and when it comes to a foreign substance on the floor, several factors influence whether a business may be found liable to pay compensation. An overview of how the law evaluates slip and fall cases involving foreign substances will follow below.

IL injury lawyerEscalators are a ubiquitous part of today’s life. From allowing people to get quickly and efficiently to train platforms, to traversing the various levels of airports, in many cases, escalators have replaced stairs as the preferred method of traveling between levels. However, escalators are mechanical machines with many moving parts, and, in some case, these parts do not stop moving merely because a human part gets in the way. Further, children sometimes look at escalators as a type of amusement park attraction and will attempt to “ride” the escalator, increasing the risk of an injury. When escalator accidents do happen, retaining the services of an experienced personal injury attorney can be the difference in collecting reimbursement for injuries or being forced to pay out of pocket.

Recently, a Pawtucket, Rhode Island man was killed after falling off an escalator in a mall. A witness told a news crew on the scene that the man was initially “clowning around,” riding on the rail of the escalator, and fell off, hitting his head and suffering severe head trauma.
