Northlake Dangerous Premises Lawyers

Lawyers for Injuries Caused by Property Defects in Elk Grove Village and Wood Dale

When you are a guest on another person's property, that person has a duty to reasonably provide for your safety. This means that he or she must address any dangerous or defective conditions on the property so that you do not suffer any injuries that should have been prevented. Unfortunately, not all property owners are as diligent about their responsibilities as they should be, and as a result, preventable accidents do happen.

If you or a member of your family was injured on someone else's property, the skilled premises liability lawyers at Kaiser Hafezi Law are ready to help you seek compensation. We realize that dangerous conditions or property defects can cause serious injuries or even death, and we are prepared to hold negligent property owners accountable when they fail to address such problems. Our lawyers have an impressive history of success with personal injury cases, including many involving property defects and dangerous conditions. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

Dangerous Property Conditions

When a particular property includes certain features that could create potential dangers, such as a pool or tiered landscaping, the owner of the property must take steps to ensure that guests on the property are not injured. Such steps may include installing a fence with a locked gate around a pool or a barrier around a koi pond, for example. By taking reasonable precautions, the owner can reduce not only the likelihood of an accident but also his or her liability in the event that an accident does occur.

The legal concept of an "attractive nuisance" may also be a factor with potentially dangerous property conditions. An attractive nuisance can be almost anything that attracts the attention of children and causes them to enter the property and get hurt. Common examples of attractive nuisances include swimming pools, hot tubs, trampolines, and fire pits, but virtually anything that might be interesting to a child could be considered an attractive nuisance. The owner of a property that contains attractive nuisances has a duty to secure the property so that small children cannot easily gain access. Failure to secure the property could leave the owner liable if a child is injured, even if the child was technically trespassing.

Property Defects in Illinois

In addition to potentially dangerous conditions created by a property's features and amenities, defects on the property present serious dangers as well. Concerns such as rotting stairs, broken railings, leaking gutters or pipes can all create situations in which a visitor to the property could be injured. All property owners have a responsibility to maintain their property so that the risk of an injury-causing accident can be minimized.

Cook County Injury Attorneys Working for You

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our lawyers understand the challenges that often arise in cases involving dangerous conditions on someone else's property. Such cases can even present difficulties due to personal relationships. For example, if you were injured as the result of a property defect at your neighbor's house, you may be hesitant to take legal action because of your friendship with your neighbor. However, you should not be forced to bear the burden of your neighbor's negligence, and we are equipped to help you manage the situation with compassion.

Our attorneys will carefully review the circumstances surrounding your accident and the circumstances that led to it. We will determine how your injuries occurred and which party or parties may be responsible. Our team is prepared to negotiate in good faith with insurance companies toward a favorable settlement, but we will take your case all the way to trial if necessary to get you the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
