Premises Liability

Premises Liability – when you are hurt on someone else’s property

Premises injuries can be serious, whether from slip and falls or animal attacks. You have the right to expect a safe environment, whether you are shopping in a local Chicago mall or visiting a home or business. When you are injured due to negligence on the part of a property owner or occupier, you deserve compensation. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Meyer & Blumenshine can help you get a settlement or damage award to cover your medical bills, lost wages and more.

Slip, trip and fall injuries

Tripping and falling can result in injuries including lacerations, broken bones and even brain injuries. When you fall on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to damages if the property owner permitted a dangerous condition, such as—

  • Uneven walkway or sidewalk
  • Unstable railing
  • Wet floor
  • Lack of security
  • Inadequate warnings

If the property owner created the unsafe condition, was aware of it or should have been aware of it, there is a good chance you have a valid premises liability claim for your injuries. Our premises liability lawyers evaluate your case and prepare a course of legal action to get you compensated.

Animal attacks

Our firm can help you after a dog bite or any other type of animal attack. Wild animals are commonly — and illegally — kept as pets, posing a serious hazard to visitors and even passersby. We help you file a claim when you have been injured by an animal, domestic or wild, that is under the control of any person claiming to be its owner. These animals may include—

  • Dogs
  • Doberman Pinschers
  • German Shepherds
  • Rottweilers
  • Pit bulls
  • All other breeds
  • Horses
  • Ferrets
  • Pigs
  • Snakes
  • Monkeys

Animal owners are responsible for making appropriate choices that protect humans. The failure to use security procedures including leashes, muzzles or cages endangers the public and constitutes negligence. Our attorneys help you get compensated for your injuries when you have been hurt by another person’s animal.
