Premises liability refers to the liability the owner or occupier of a building or property has when a visitor suffers an accident on his or her property. If the owner was aware of the dangerous condition or was negligent, he or she could be held liable for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred. 
A Belleville man is on the road to recovery after a dog attack left him with serious injuries. Known as man’s best friend, dogs offer companionship, security, assistance, and other support to their owners. Sometimes, however, they cause serious injuries that have lasting effects.  A week after he was attacked by two unknown dogs, the Belleville man remained in the hospital, recovering from the dog bite injuries and receiving rabies treatment.

Premises Liability For Low Hanging Power Line

Posted By:

Your South Chicago Premises Liability Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe warn all persons in the proximity of power lines note that these lines have height mandates depending on their voltage. Do not assume that a low hanging wire is dead or not dangerous. An Alabama jury awarded $1.5 million in December to a man who was shocked by low-hanging power lines while working for a paving company.  The vehicle he was operating struck the power lines, sending 7,600 volts of electricity through his right arm-more than twice the amount used for the electric chair! The electricity went into his right hand and out of his right elbow causing him to suffer limited use of his arm as well as constant pain which may not abate for his lifetime.

The jury found that defendant electric company had not complied with national codes by failing to hang the lines at proper height and adequately maintain and inspect them.

Your South Chicago and Cicero Premises Liability Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe warn the obvious to all-avoid electrical and power lines at all costs but caution that not all these lines are obvious so please be vigilant and always be on guard for the unexpected hazard. Remember-it is always better to stay safe, but if you can’t, stay with Grazian and Volpe!
