Rockford, IL Injury Lawyers for Restaurant, Store, and Mall Accidents

Boone County Restaurants, Stores, and Malls Injury Lawyer

Winnebago County Premises Liability Lawyers

When you legally enter a restaurant, store, mall, or another type of commercial property, you are owed a duty of reasonable care. This means that the owner or caretaker has a duty to take reasonable steps to ensure that the premises are safe and free of hazards. When these steps are not taken, and a guest or visitor is injured on the property, the injured party may have the right to file a premises liability claim.

For over two decades, Mannarino & Brasfield, A Division of Schwartz Injury Law has successfully represented clients injured at restaurants, stores, and malls in Rockford, Chicago, and throughout Illinois. Our lawyers have extensive experience with these types of cases, and we have a proven track record of favorable results. We have handled numerous premises liability cases for those who have been harmed on commercial properties, and we know what it takes to prevail against even the most well-funded adversaries and their armies of high-priced attorneys.

Common Injuries Suffered at Restaurants, Stores, and Malls

There are several ways guests and visitors are injured at commercial establishments, including:

  • Slips, Trips, and Falls: Wet or oily floors, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, poorly maintained stairways, snowy or icy pavement, damaged inventory, and other hazards can lead to slip and fall accidents.
  • Falling Merchandise: Store aisles where merchandise is not organized safely can result in items falling off the shelves and injuring shoppers.
  • Faulty Shopping Carts: Carts that have sharp and abrasive edges can cut the hands and fingers of shoppers. In addition, the folding parts of the cart can pinch fingers, hands, and arms. Children are particularly susceptible to these types of injuries.
  • Burn Injuries: Hot beverage spills at restaurants are a common cause of severe burns.
  • Muggings and Assaults: Many shopping malls and other retail establishments have inadequate security, putting patrons at risk of being robbed or assaulted.
  • Food Poisoning: Restaurants that do not take proper steps to keep their food from spoiling put their customers at risk for becoming ill and/or poisoned.
  • Alcohol-Related Injuries: Liquor establishments that knowingly serve or sell alcohol to intoxicated patrons may be subject to a dram shop liability claim if one of these patrons injures or kills someone.
