Frequently Asked Questions For A Chicago Premises Liability Lawyer

At Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC, we understand that you may have a lot of questions after a serious injury. It’s important to work with an experienced Chicago premises liability lawyer, but here are a few quick answers to the questions we see most often.

What first steps should you take after a slip-and-fall accident in Chicago?

After a slip-and-fall accident, it is important to seek medical care. Your medical records can show how you were injured, what impact that injury will have on your life and how much it cost – at least in terms of medical bills. You also want to consider the types of evidence you can collect, such as witness statements or CCTV recordings of the event. Then, you can talk to an experienced attorney about all of your legal options to seek compensation.

Does a premises liability lawsuit in Chicago have a statute of limitations?

Yes. A statute of limitations is a deadline by which you have to file your claim or you may lose the ability to do so, even if it was a valid claim. In Illinois, the statute of limitations has been set at two years. This is why it is important not to delay taking action after an injury. Move quickly to seek the compensation you deserve.

How does the “attractive nuisance” doctrine apply to children?

The attractive nuisance doctrine addresses property issues that are both attractive and dangerous to children – like a backyard pool. Property owners have to take reasonable steps to keep children safe, and these owners can be liable if they fail to do so – even when the children are trespassing on the property.

How are dog bites addressed by Illinois premises liability law?

If the dog’s owner was negligent, then the law holds them responsible for the injuries the victim suffered. If an owner knowingly brought their dangerous dog outside without a leash and you or your child were attacked, for instance, the owner may be responsible for financial compensation due to the dog’s actions. A Chicago premises liability lawyer can help you learn more.
