Do I have a claim after a nightclub injury?

Nightclubs and bars can be chaotic places, and with the mix of alcohol, loud music volumes and low lighting, it can be a recipe for disaster. While it is very unlikely that you will be able to make a legal claim against a nightclub or bar for an accident that was a result of drunken behavior, it is possible in many cases to prove that the establishment acted negligently, and therefore, that they are liable for the accident that occurred.

Animal owners may have to pay big if their animal bites someone

There are many pet owners in Chicago, Illinois. Hopefully, most of them keep their animals inside, behind a fence or on a leash, in order to prevent the animals from intruding upon the person or property of other people. If they don't, and their animal bites someone, the owner may face a very expensive premises liability case.

Do you have to shovel your sidewalk?

Despite hopes that winter would end early Chicago, Illinois, that hasn't happened. The windy city has been the cold city, much to the distress of residents who dream of summer. Due to the ongoing low temperatures, there may yet be snowfalls before the weather improves. Snow can result in slippery sidewalks and corresponding premises liability. Let's address a few questions about that.

Stairs can be a source of injuries

Chicago, Illinois, has some of the most impressive buildings in the world, as well as other buildings that are lesser known. Those buildings are sites of bustling commerce, with everyone from billionaire CEOs to minimum wage clerks going in and out of them every day. Naturally, most of those people use the buildings' stairs, both in entering and exiting the building and within the building. When someone slips and falls on the stairs and gets injured, there can be a premises liability case.

Court clarifies liability for slip-and-fall accidents

No matter how delightful it may be within the warmly heated homes and businesses of Chicago, Illinois, the weather outside is about to get frightful, for winter is coming and bringing with it lots of snow. For property owners, that raises premises liability considerations, since employees, customers and passersby might slip and fall on ice and snow and then sue the owner of the property that it happened on for a fortune.

Elevator safety is important

Chicago, Illinois, is famous for tall buildings. Those buildings, and many smaller ones, have elevators that thousands of people ride up and down on a daily basis. When people are injured while riding on those elevators, building owners may face premises liability claims. Those claims can be precluded by ensuring that everyone who uses the elevators does so in the safest manner possible.

Are dogs biting people a common problem?

90 million dogs are kept as pets in the United States of America. Many of those dogs reside in the city of Chicago, Illinois. Their owners have a responsibility to ensure that their dogs do not infringe upon the property or personal space of other people. If their dog bites someone, a dog owner may find themselves facing a case inclusive of premises liability.
