Dedicated Chicago slip and fall defense lawyers help you minimize your exposure
Commercial and residential property owners have a responsibility to keep their homes, stores and general grounds in good repair and to give advance warning of known hazards to be avoided. When they fail to do so, visitors who suffer harm have the right to seek compensation. However, in many cases, it must be asked whether the alleged victim didn’t cause the accident through his or her own carelessness.
