What Is Premises Liability?
In short, every property owner has a duty to keep the premises or “area” safe to use. If a spill in a grocery store was not cleaned up and you slip and hit your head, you may have a premises liability case. Illinois property owners have a responsibility to maintain their property (store, restaurant, hotel, bar, apartment complex, etc.).
When a tenant, guest or visitor to a property is hurt due to a danger that the owner should have prevented, the owner’s insurance company has to pay for the injured person’s medical care. Other costs associated with the injury should also be paid by the insurance company. Damages mean the money or “compensation” that we, as your attorneys, go after.
Types Of Accidents Or Injuries That Are Involved With Premises Liability
In addition to trip-and-fall and slip-and-fall cases, we can represent you in other premises liability cases. These include:
- Dog bites and attacks
- Serious pool accidents including drownings
- Attractive nuisance injuries
- Fireworks injuries
- Attacks that happen in hotels or motels due to lack of security
- Injuries such as broken bones suffered on exercise or play equipment
Premises liability cases can be complex. As attorneys who are experienced with many types of personal injury cases, we are ready to assess your case and provide you the information you need to move forward.
