Oak Brook Premises Liability Defense Lawyers
DuPage County Civil Litigation Defense Attorneys
It can be a dream come true to own and operate a business. Whether you own a restaurant, retail establishment, manufacturing company, or commercial or residential real estate, your investments could pay handsome returns for yourself and your family. Owning or leasing commercial property, however, can also leave you exposed to a premises liability claim if someone is injured while on your property. An injured victim may file a personal injury lawsuit against you seeking financial compensation for his or her injuries. If and when such incidents happen, the experienced team at Farooqi & Husain Law Office is ready to help you protect your interests.

Elmhurst Lawyers Protecting the Rights of Business Owners
The nature of most companies dictates that customers and other guests are generally welcome on your property during reasonable business hours. When a person is on your property, it is your responsibility to act in good faith to keep him or safe. There is, however, only so much you can do and, sometimes, accidents still occur despite your best efforts. Our experienced attorneys are prepared to help you defend against claims of premises liability related to:
- Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents;
- Snow, ice, and other weather-related injuries;
- Uneven pavement or stairs;
- Playground, park, or swimming pool accidents;
- Inadequate lighting or security claims;
- Electrical, heat, or other industrial incidents;
- Food poisoning; and
- Overserving alcohol, also known as dram shop liability.
We will assist you in developing a defense that appropriately addresses the specific circumstances of the incident in question. For example, if a patron was injured by a potential hazard that was clearly marked and was open and obvious, you may have no liability for his or her injury. Similarly, your liability may be drastically reduced if the injured party was trespassing at the time of the incident. No matter how complicated your case may be, Farooqi & Husain Law Office will fully investigate the situation and ensure that you are afforded the full protection of the law.
