Representing Individuals Hurt On Residential Or Commercial Property

Whether you are visiting a friend or running errands on commercial property, you expect that you will be safe when you are on these premises. In Illinois and Missouri, property owners are required to fix known hazards or notify visitors that these hazards exist. When they don’t, they put your welfare at risk.

At Cook, Bartholomew, Shevlin, Cook & Jones, LLP, our team of personal injury attorneys stands up for individuals who are hurt on residential and commercial property. We are equipped to take action against negligent property owners who do not fulfill their obligations due to carelessness, cost-cutting measures or other reasons.

Our firm has an impressive record of success – we have secured over $1 billion in settlements and awards for our clients in Illinois and Missouri. Contact us to get the help you need today.

We Handle More Than Slip-And-Fall Cases

There is more to premises liability law than slip-and-fall cases. While we represent clients in slip- and trip-and-fall matters, we also advocate for individuals who have been hurt in animal attacks or have been injured as a result of negligent security.

Although you may believe that you have a clear-cut case, don’t expect to receive fair compensation without a fight. Insurance companies resist paying fair settlements because payouts reduce company profits.

Depending on the extent of your injuries, you could be entitled to receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs associated with your injury
  • Long-term care, rehabilitation and other medical needs
  • Disfigurement or physical impairment
  • Lost wages and reduced earning potential

It is common for individuals to suffer emotional trauma after they have been hurt by an aggressive animal or attacked on property that did not have adequate security. Our lawyers can develop compelling arguments that support compensation for noneconomic damages that include pain and suffering.

When you partner with us, we will make your case our priority. We will tirelessly represent you, striving to achieve the best result for you.
