Illinois Premises Liability Legal Advocate

Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents are part of an area of personal injury law known as premises liability. The most basic tenet of premises liability holds that a property owner or occupier is ultimately responsible for the safety and well-being of those who enter into or onto the property. When actions or negligence by the owner lead to injuries sustained by guests and visitors, the owner can and should be held fully liable. Premises liability pertains to private homeowners, as well as to commercial proprietors and management of a store, office, restaurant, or bar.

Proving Your Trip and Fall or Slip and Fall Case

Attorney Daniel Flaherty is an experienced personal injury attorney who understands what it takes to get you the full compensation you deserve as quickly as possible. In a slip and fall accident case, doing so requires proving several distinct elements, including that:

  • The owner owed you a duty of care: You were invited or permitted on the property and, therefore, the owner was responsible for your safety;
  • The owner breached that duty: Willful actions, negligence, or failure to warn of known danger may all be considered a breach of a duty of care;
  • You were injured and suffered measurable damages: The injuries you sustained caused you to incur medical bills, miss work, or change your lifestyle; and
  • The owner's breach was the cause of your injuries: The actions or negligence of the owner directly led to you being injured.

With previous experience in personal injury defense, Mr. Flaherty is familiar with the tactics employed by insurance carriers and defendants looking to reduce their potential exposure. He will not be bullied into accepting a settlement that does not meet your needs; instead, he will continue to work hard on your behalf until you collect the compensation you deserve. His tireless commitment to clients' well-being has produced a well-earned history of success, and, at Flaherty Law, LLC, we are prepared to offer the same dedication to your case.
