What Is Premises Liability?

As a branch of personal injury law, premises liability relates to the responsibility of property owners to protect visitors by maintaining their property.

If a property owner neglects to do so, and someone is injured as a result, they can be held legally and financially responsible for the injury. Many situations can result in a premises liability claim, and an experienced premises liability lawyer can help you determine if you have grounds to file a suit.

Examples of premises liability cases include but are not limited to:

  • Slip & fall cases
  • Improper lighting cases
  • Accidents associated with water, snow, and ice on walkways
  • Damaged or uneven walkway accidents
  • Inappropriate security measures on the property
  • Failure to warn of hazardous or dangerous conditions
  • Blocked or impeded walkway accidents
  • Elevator or escalator accidents
  • Stairway accidents
  • Flooding-related injuries
  • Exposure to toxic fumes and other dangerous substances
  • Accidents on commercial properties
  • Accidents in retail spaces
  • Amusement park accidents

Because there is a wide variety of situations that can result in a premises liability injury, it is recommended that you work with an attorney familiar with handling these types of cases. In addition to advising you on the best course of action, your lawyer can also negotiate on your behalf with insurance companies and represent you in court.

What Damages Are Available in a Premises Liability Claim?

If you were injured on a negligent person or business' property, you may be eligible to recover compensation for a wide range of damages under Illinois law.

Damages available in premises liability claims may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death (if a loved one was killed)
