Wheeling, IL Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
Premises Liability Attorney Serving Glenview, Des Plaines, and the Chicago Area
When you are legally on the property of another person or entity, the property owner assumes a degree of responsibility for your safety. You have the right to expect the property to be reasonably safe and free from hazards on which you could slip and fall. Slip and fall accidents, however, do happen. When they occur, an injured victim may be entitled to compensation from the property owner. Joseph G. Haffner, Attorney at Law, understands the struggles you may be facing after a slip and fall accident, and he is ready to help you recover the damages you need to put your life back together.
Personal Injury Attorney with Experience
For more than 25 years, Attorney Joseph G. Haffner has been protecting the rights of those who have been injured on another person's property. He recognizes that communication is the key to building a successful case, and he prides himself on the level of accessibility he offers to each and every client. Mr. Haffner will not only take the time to listen to your needs and objectives but he will also answer emails and take calls well into the evening and on weekends. If you have been hurt, you need a dedicated advocate at your side every step of the way, not just during business hours.
Proving a Slip and Fall Case in Illinois
To collect compensation for your injuries, you will need to show that the property owner is responsible for your injuries due to his or her actions or negligence. Mr. Haffner and his team will work hard to show that:
- The owner was responsible for the safety of the property;
- A hazard existed on the property, such as a spill or missing tile;
- The owner knew about the hazard;
- The owner failed to take action to fix the hazard or to prevent injuries;
- The hazard caused your fall; and
- Your injuries were sustained due to your fall.
In slip and fall cases, it is common for an insurance company to offer a quick settlement in an effort to limit its liability. Mr. Haffner will not be intimidated or intimidated into a settlement that does not meet your needs, and he will fight until you collect the full compensation you deserve. Whether you have been injured at another person's home or in the checkout line at the grocery store, you have rights, and our team will work hard to protect them.
