At Grazian & Volpe, we understand the importance of promptly taking action to preserve the evidence from the accident scene and analyzing the property to find out what could have been done to prevent the injury. Each of our Chicago lawyers has on average more than 20 years of trial experience, so we know how to build strong cases.

Negligent Property Owner Attorneys in Chicago
In this part of the country, we are all far too familiar with how slippery roads and sidewalks get after a fresh snowfall. However, although property owners are expected to keep their property safely maintained, they are not liable for injuries caused by natural accumulations of ice and snow.
However, if there is an unnatural accumulation of ice or snow, and you fall on that, the property owner can be held liable. An unnatural accumulation happens anytime there is a condition that causes the snow or ice to accumulate in a way it wouldn’t do on its own, including:
- Ice caused by a leaky gutter
- A drain pipe that puts water on the sidewalk
- Piles of snow plowed into unsafe areas
- Potholes in a parking lot that fill with ice when the remainder of the lot is dry
