Premises Liability

Property owners have a duty to ensure that their property is safe for visitors. They have an obligation to remove any and all hazards that they are aware of immediately. Failure to do so often results in accidents that can range from a few relatively minor cuts or scrapes to major injuries or even wrongful death. Types of accidents that often fall under premises liability laws include:

  • Slip & fall accidents
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Drownings
  • Construction site injuries
  • Negligent security injuries

Common places that premises liability accidents occur include:

  • Hotels and motels
  • Public pools
  • Supermarkets
  • Grocery stores
  • Gas stations
  • Parking lots
  • Sidewalks
  • Parking garages
  • Apartment complexes

Legally, if the owner of the property was aware of the hazard that caused the accident and failed to remove it, he or she can be held liable for the injuries that resulted from the accident. For example, if a owner allows a dog that they know to be vicious run at large or if the owner of a gas station is aware of a spill and fails to clean it up in a timely fashion, they could be held liable for the injuries that occur.

Premises liability law can be complicated, and it takes a skilled and aggressive attorney to prove that the owner of the property was aware of the hazard and did not remove it. At the Injury Lawyers of Illinois, LLC, we will work hard to prove your case, so you can receive the financial restitution you are entitled to for your pain and suffering.
