Seidman Law Offices responds quickly to assist clients who have been seriously injured in a fall, bitten by a dog, assaulted, or otherwise seriously hurt on private property. Contact our Chicago, Illinois premises liability lawyers for a free evaluation of your claim.
Based in downtown Chicago, we represent clients throughout the suburbs of Cook County and surrounding communities from Waukegan and Geneva to Wheaton and Joliet. Our slip and fall attorneys have obtained significant compensation for victims of personal injuries due to negligent conditions or lack of safety measures.
Slip and Fall Accidents
We represent clients injured on ice walkways, slippery floors, or otherwise hurt due to dangerous conditions inside commercial buildings or on the grounds. Seidman Law Offices sends a professional photographer to the scene of the accident as soon as possible to document the unsafe conditions. It is important to act quickly, as snow and ice accumulations melt, spills are cleaned up, safety barriers are erected, or the property owner corrects unsafe situations.
If a construction defect caused the accident, we send an architect to take accurate measurements and later testify. More and more frequently, the business has security cameras that capture the accident on tape. This evidence has a powerful impact on juries – and insurance companies.
Dog Bite Lawyers
We handle many cases of victims, often children, bitten by dogs. Dog bites can cause severe disfigurement, and medical bills can be high for reconstructive surgery or treatment of infected wounds. Permanent nerve damage and scarring are also common. The victim can recover compensatory damages for future medical care, any lost wages, any permanent disability or disfiguring, and in some cases emotional trauma.
There is no “one-bite rule” or a requirement that the dog have a history of vicious behavior. The dog owner is strictly liable unless the animal was provoked or the victim was trespassing.
Assaults Due to Inadequate Security
The property owner may be liable for injuries suffered in a robbery, assault, or rape if the business had the means to provide security patrols, proper lighting, controlled access or other measures for the safety of patrons and employees. To obtain damages, we generally have to prove a history of assaults or criminal activity on the property. Seidman Law Offices consults police records and community groups to demonstrate that the owner is liable for the injury.
