IL injury lawyerSuffering an injury while on the property of another can be a frustrating experience. Initially, it is important to tend to the injury medically. However, medical treatment necessarily involves cost, and, especially if the injury can be attributable to a dangerous condition, but these costs may be reimbursable from the property owner under the doctrine of premises liability. Retaining the services of an experienced premises liability attorney is essential to ensure that reimbursement is obtained.

One complication that can affect the outcome of an injury case is if the injury occurs on public property, such as in a park, at city hall, or on a sidewalk. In Illinois, certain laws in these circumstances which affect how a lawsuit may be brought against a governmental entity. Recently, a woman who tripped on a sidewalk in Naperville re-filed her lawsuit against the city, claiming that she tripped on the sidewalk in front of the Will County Courthouse in Naperville.

Suing a Governmental Entity

The Illinois Court of Claims Act governs all claims filed against the State of Illinois, and the Local Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act covers claims failed against local Illinois municipalities. These Acts allow a wide range of cases against Illinois governments, including cases for breach of contract, for unjustly-served time in state prisons, for review of administrative decisions, and for claims of personal injury or similar civil wrongs. Additionally, these acts also address the application of sovereign immunity against Illinois governmental entities.
