Helping You Receive What You Deserve

If you have slipped and fell, the possibility of permanent injury is very likely. Talk to your premises liability attorneys at Shay & Associates Law Firm. Since 1992, we have helped injured people who fall on both public and private property as invited guests. We hold property managers and owners of public properties like malls, grocery stores and restaurants, responsible for neglecting the maintenance, design and operation of their establishments.

We can help if you are hurt when visiting a private property, like an apartment complex or condo and they refuse to take care of dangerous conditions like icy sidewalks or loose to no railings in stairwells. We have the burden of proving the land owner knew of the dangers but refused to do something about it.

When you Should Call your Premises Liability Attorney

It is the responsibility of a property owner to make sure that their property is well-maintained in order to prevent injury to guests or patrons. This can mean hiring a property management company or groundskeeper to maintain walkways, stairways and driveways for the outdoors. There will also need to be maintenance indoors, in the case of apartment properties. They are responsible for harm to their tenants by eliminating structural defects, drowning hazards and environmental hazards like mold, lead or carbon monoxides.

Our slip and fall attorneys represent your interests when property owners want to make your fall your fault. If your incident happened at a friend or family members home, we know it can be emotionally trying. But the property owner’s homeowners’ or renters’ insurance covers you if you hurt yourself. Don’t hesitate to call us whenever you’re hurt in a fall.

Shay & Associates Law Firm personal injury lawyers are there for you to help get compensation when you’ve slipped and fallen in Illinois. You only have a short window to file a claim. Contact us immediately so we can get started.
