Slip & Fall
Under the Premises Liability Act for the state of Illinois, property owners owe a duty of reasonable care to people who lawfully visit their property. There are many aspects, limitations and exclusions in this law, all of which are open to some level of interpretation. Essentially, however, this premises liability law can make an owner or occupier liable for financial damages if someone is injured due to unsafe conditions that should have been recognized and fixed or marked. At Thomas Q. Keefe, P.C., we carefully evaluate potential premises liability claims based on factors including the severity of the injuries, availability of insurance coverage and other potential sources of recovery.

Acting Quickly and Decisively to Protect Your Rights Can Be Criticals
Whether you working on a construction site or otherwise lawfully on someone’s property, you may have a valid claim if you suffered injury caused by a condition you did not know about and were not warned about.
Most commonly, claims our firm handles involve industrial or construction negligence that caused a worksite vehicle accident, injuries from using dangerous, defective equipment, a fall from scaffolding, impact from falling debris or some other harmful event. We may also be able to help you after a serious slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident, dog bite or animal attack.
We encourage people to take fast action after a serious auto accident, contacting a proven, committed lawyer to protect their interests before making statements or entering insurance negotiations. Witness testimony and preservation of physical or photographic evidence could prove critical to your case. However, we also know that you may recognize your need for legal advocacy only when an auto insurer denies, disputes or attempts to “low ball” your claim.
Leveraging extensive insurance knowledge and investigative resources, our Southern Illinois car accident lawyers build cases for trial often forcing the opposition to come through with a fair settlement offer. If you want experienced representation enabling you to focus on your own health and recovery, please call or e-mail our lawyers today and request a helpful, informative consultation.
