Chicago Premises Liability Lawyers

Illinois Dangerous Property Attorney

In Illinois, the owner of residential or commercial property has a duty to maintain the premises in ways that minimize the risk of injury to visitors, including customers, tenants and social guests. If you have been injured while on someone else's property, you may have a claim for damages against the negligent property owner, based on the legal theory of premises liability. You want an experienced and honest lawyer to protect your rights, someone who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances.

At the law office of James P. Crawley & Associates, Ltd., we bring more than 23 years of personal injury law experience to injured people throughout Cook County, Chicago and the surrounding area. We combine an aggressive approach with a high level of professionalism. We carefully select the cases we handle, so that we can devote our skill, knowledge, experience and resources to getting full and fair compensation for your losses. We will always be straightforward with you, giving you a realistic assessment of your options, as well as your likelihood of success.

Our Premises Liability Practice

We offer comprehensive counsel to people who have been injured because of the improper or negligent maintenance of residential or commercial property. We will carefully gather all relevant evidence, visit the site of the accident and will prepare and file all necessary documentation to initiate and prosecute your lawsuit. We will also be your advocate in all hearings or proceedings, including depositions, settlement meetings and trial.

We handle premises liability cases involving:

  • Slips-and-falls caused by slippery floors or sidewalks, or by broken steps, stairways or pavement
  • Falls as a result of unnatural accumulations of ice or snow
  • Injuries caused by falling objects
  • Injuries sustained in a fire or by exposure to metal or other unsafe conditions

We have a proven track record. Recently, we obtained a settlement of $1.5 million against a landlord for failure to provide a working smoke detector that resulted in the death of a 5-year-old boy.

We take all personal injury claims, including premises liability cases, on a contingency basis. Our lawyers will not charge legal fees unless we recover compensation for you under most circumstances.
