Property owners have the responsibility to take all necessary precautions in order to ensure that lawful visitors are free from danger. One of the most important things can be done in this pursuit is to ensure adequate lighting on the inside and outside of the property. Inadequate lighting can hide hazards that could easily have been avoided had the victim been able to see them.
If you have been injured in an accident that occurred in a poorly lit area, you may have a personal injury claim against the property owner. At The Horwitz Law Group, our Chicago inadequate lighting accident attorneys represent clients in all types of premises liability cases. We work diligently to see that you receive fair compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
Many people don’t report injuries they have suffered in poorly lit areas because they don’t understand property owner’s responsibility in these matters. Contact our office today to schedule a free initial consultation with an experiencedChicago premises liability lawyer who can help you understand your rights.
The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) is considered the authority on the level of lighting needed to meet the minimum standard for safety. The IESNA has issued guidelines for minimum levels of light needed for indoor and outdoor environments. When lighting levels fall below these guidelines, the argument could be made for inadequate lighting.
Our inadequate lighting accident attorneys have handled a broad range of premises liability claims, including poor lighting in parking structures, on sidewalks, in stairwells and other areas. When you hire our firm, we will conduct a complete investigation. We will photograph the area where the incident occurred and gather medical records or any other documentation that could help us. We will do everything in our power to reach the most favorable possible outcome to your case.
