Slip and Fall/Premises Liability
Brendan can answer your questions and help fight your slip and fall or premises liability case to get an award that fairly compensates you for pain and suffering, actual damages, and medical bills. Because this may be one of the most difficult times of your life, it is crucial to receive accurate and thorough legal advice.
If you are hurt on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to receive compensation. In order to determine whether you have a case, call Brendan today.
In order for a property owner or landlord to be liable for your injuries, s/he must have done something in order to cause or permit a dangerous condition to exist (sometimes regardless of whether s/he knew of the condition). Call today if you have a question about your Rockford, Rockton, Roscoe or any other slip and fall or premises liability case.
The property owner’s responsibility comes from what s/he did to ensure the safety of the area. Some factors that are considered in determining liability are as follows:
- The length of time the dangerous condition existed
- How the property owner knew or should have known about it
- Was there a system in place to verify the safety of the property on a regular basis
- Was there a better way to ensure the property’s safety
- Should a sign have indicated the presence of a dangerous condition
- Should there have been better lighting
As always, documentation of any type is important to prove your slip and fall or premises liability case. With smartphones these days, taking photographs, audio recordings, and making copies of documents is much easier. Err on the side of caution and try to collect as much evidence as you can at or near the time the injury occurs. The amount of evidence collected is generally directly related to the likelihood and speed of your recovery. Brendan will tell you candidly whether he thinks you have a good case.
