Premises Liability and Injuries in Chicago

Premises Liability Attorney

Residential or commercial property owners may be liable to individuals injured on their premises.  Visitors expect property owners to maintain safe conditions inside and outside of their structures so accidents do not occur.  Common injuries from premises liability accidents are soft tissue damage, fractures, dislocations, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, burns, internal organ damage, or coma.  Some premises liability accidents are severe enough to cause fatal injuries.  Individuals injured in premises liability accidents may require hospitalization and rehabilitation before returning to a prior lifestyle. 

Others may have significant injuries that cause temporary disability or permanent disability.  Injuries may force a victim to miss work and experience financial difficulties because of an inability to earn a living.  Following a premises liability accident, contact a Chicago personal injury lawyer for information regarding possible compensation for injuries and suffering from a premises liability accident.  Steven J. Morton & Associates, Ltd. is experienced in representing all types of premises liability injury cases.  Our lawyers pursue maximum monetary compensation for injuries and suffering from accidents involving premises liability accidents.

Injury Compensation and Premises Liability Accidents

The most common types of premises liability accidents and injury cases are the following:

Property owners may be liable to injured individuals if an accident is due to negligence or recklessness.  The victim may receive compensation in the form of medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  A fatality resulting from a premises liability accident may require the surviving family members sue for damages due to wrongful death.  The majority of property owners have homeowners insurance to cover the costs of premises liability accidents.  An insurance settlement offer may be insufficient to compensate for the injuries and loss suffered.  Insurance companies often attempt to settle for less than injuries are worth.  Speak with one of our attorneys before settling an insurance claim.  Make an appointment today for a consultation with one of our experienced premises liability lawyers.
