Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, 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 icy walkways and slippery floors or otherwise hurt due to dangerous conditions inside commercial buildings or on the grounds. Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, 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, and property owners correct unsafe situations.

If a construction defect caused the accident, we send an architect to take accurate measurements and later testify. More and more frequently, businesses have security cameras that capture accidents 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. Victims can recover compensatory damages for future medical care, lost wages, permanent disability or disfiguring, and, in some cases, emotional trauma.

There is no "one-bite rule" or a requirement that the dog has a history of vicious behavior. The dog owner is strictly liable unless the animal was provoked or the victim was trespassing. If you have been injured or attacked by a dog, contact our Chicago dog bite lawyers today.

Assaults Due To Inadequate Security

A 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 Margulis & Fairman, LLP, consults police records and community groups to demonstrate that the owner is liable for the injury.
