Premises Liability Cases

Whenever an injury occurs because of someone else's negligence, a victim has the right to pursue compensation that addresses the damages they have suffered. Property owners have a "duty of care" to ensure that people who enter their property are safe from harm, and they may be considered negligent if they do not provide a safe environment or if they fail to warn visitors about potential hazards.

Cases in which a person may be able to hold a property owner liable for injuries include:

  • Slip and falls - Property owners should ensure that all walking surfaces are safe to use, or they should provide adequate warnings about slipping or tripping hazards. Issues such as inadequate maintenance or unnatural accumulations of ice and snow can lead to fall injuries such as broken bones, dislocated joints, and traumatic brain injuries.
  • Dog bites - An attack by a dog can cause severe injuries, including cuts and lacerations or scarring and disfigurement. In Illinois, a dog's owner may be held liable for injuries caused by their animal, regardless of whether they knew the dog had aggressive tendencies.
  • Negligent security - Property owners are required to protect the safety of those who use their premises, and this includes providing adequate security measures to protect against issues such as assault or robbery. A business that did not provide security guards or alarm systems or failed to maintain equipment such as locks, lighting, or security cameras may be responsible for injuries suffered by visitors to the premises.
  • Recreational facilities and amusement parks - People who use gyms, swimming pools, or sports facilities may be injured because of malfunctioning equipment or inadequate supervision. Visitors to carnivals or amusement parks may suffer injuries if rides break down or if they are not properly advised about the risks of certain activities.
  • Landlord liability - Property owners are required to maintain a safe premises for their tenants. Inadequate maintenance of appliances, electrical wiring, or heating and air conditioning systems may cause tenants to suffer injuries. Landlords may also be responsible for injuries that occurred because of failure to provide working smoke alarms or carbon monoxide detectors, or because they did not remove toxic substances such as lead paint or asbestos.
