Charleston, IL Premises Liability Attorneys

Property Owners Have a Duty to Maintain Reasonably Safe Grounds

If you have been injured at a store, hotel, house, parking lot, porch, bridge, or any other building or property, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries and losses you have experienced. Owners, caretakers, and managers of residential or commercial properties have a duty to maintain safe conditions on that property. A premises liability action can hold them accountable for the property's dangerous, unsafe, or otherwise poor condition.

Since 1996, The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm has fought for the injured in Central and Southern Illinois. We are relentless in our pursuit of justice for those who have been injured due to hazardous conditions on another’s property, which is evident when you consider the millions of dollars we have secured in verdicts and settlements for our clients.

If you’ve been injured, call (217) 394-5885. Our Charleston, IL premises liability attorneys are standing by to see how we can assist you.

Types of Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability claims can come in a variety of forms. The most basic example is a slip and fall case. However, claims may also be brought for injuries caused by inadequate security measures, poorly lit staircases or hallways, falling debris, items falling from shelves, gaseous leaks, slippery floors, broken sidewalks, structural defects, escalator or elevator problems, walkway obstacles, or exposed wiring.

Compensation for the Injured Person

When injuries occur as a result of unsafe conditions on a property, the injured person may be entitled to seek financial compensation for medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and any sort of physical or psychological limitations.

Compensation for Family Members

In cases involving wrongful death, the spouse and/or other next of kin may recover for the loss of the society, love, affection, companionship, and support of their loved one, as well as medical expenses and funeral costs.
