Were You Hurt On Someone's Property?
You need an experienced attorney on your side
Slip-and-fall accidents may sound minor, but they're actually a leading cause of serious and fatal injuries in Illinois and nationwide. Falls can lead to broken bones, internal injuries and traumatic brain injuries. If you or a loved one was hurt in a fall, you need a lawyer who will take your case seriously.
Falls are covered under the area of personal injury law known as premises liability. What's "premises liability?" It's the responsibility of a property owner or manager to maintain a safe environment on the premises. This area of law also includes other types of injuries that are not falls. For instance, if you were assaulted on a commercial property with inadequate lighting or security, you may have a claim against the property owner.
It takes an experienced premises liability attorney to handle these complex cases. That's why you need Schweickert & Ganassin, LLP on your side. We've been helping injured people and their families in Peru and throughout the Illinois Valley for decades. If you've fallen down, we'll help you get back up.
We'll handle your case from start to finish and get you back on your feet
Proving liability is just one part of a successful case. We'll review your medical documents, listen to your story and, if necessary, retain outside experts to help us show the full cost of your injuries. Then, we'll negotiate with the negligent owner's insurance company to get you a settlement that covers that full cost. If they won't pay, we're prepared to take them to court as well.
It's important to take action right away after a slip-and-fall accident. Over time, witnesses' memories fade. Evidence disappears. The property owner may destroy documents or clean up the accident site. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can go to work on your behalf - and the easier it will be to prove your case.
