Were You Injured On Someone Else’s Property?

Sometimes a dangerous condition at an office, store, park, public area or someone else’s home can lead to an injury. If that happens to you or a family member, you may assume that the insurance company of the property owner will pay for your medical expenses and other damages. Unfortunately, insurance companies rarely pay these types of claims without a fight.

To recover fair compensation, you will need an attorney who has successfully handled personal injury claims involving premises liability.  Attorney Marios N. Karayannis has handled many such cases in Kane, DuPage, Cook, Kendall, DeKalb and McHenry counties and the surrounding areas. The following are just a few examples of the types of cases he handles:
  • Slip and fall
  • Trip and fall
  • Structural collapses
  • Assault in a hotel or apartment
  • Unsafe property conditions
  • Chemical exposure

Proving The Property Owner Was Negligent

The main issues in these matters are usually whether the property owner had noticed that the condition in question existed and whether the condition could have been avoided. As to the first issue, the facts in the case will often dictate the result, but the attorney’s job here is to develop the facts most favorable to his client to establish that the condition was known. As to the second issue, proof here often involves expert witnesses such as engineers, architects or other persons who can testify regarding this question. Because Marios has handled numerous premises liability cases in the past, he has many contacts with experts in this area, making it likely he will know an expert in the field necessary to address the relevant design issues in your case.
