Homeowner Liability: Protecting Your Family and Assets

Filing a lawsuit against a friend or neighbor seems like the worst thing someone can experience, especially when seeing that person again is inevitable. If a guest is injured at your home or on your property where you are legally responsible, an insurance claim can be made. Before making a claim with any insurance company, contact a personal injury attorney first. With your Chicago injury lawyer, discuss your personal liability and exposure, because personal liability is possible if the insurance does not pay a claim or the claim exceeds the policy limits. At the end of the day, neighbors understand that some insurers will pay claims without a problem and others seemingly need a lawsuit on file to get people paid appropriately, and that’s why you need a lawyer like Michael V.

Pandemic Spike in Pedestrian Fatalities and Personal Injuries in Illinois

People walking in Chicago and the suburbs can easily be injured and or killed by people driving cars, trucks, and even riding bicycles. Pedestrians can learn and adopt new safety habits to be more aware of surroundings and spot dangerous conditions before someone is injured or killed. Even if a pedestrian is injured by another pedestrian, or someone on a bike or skateboard, much less a car or truck, there are legal remedies and lawsuits to protect the injured, and the families of the injured and deceased. In some cases, there is municipal and business owner liability for the areas in and around sidewalks, crosswalks, and other paths where pedestrians are present.
