Premises Liability Law Covers Many Types of Preventable Accidents
Under premises liability law in Illinois, property owners who invite or allow people onto their property have a duty to keep the premises reasonably safe for visitors. This involves routinely inspecting the property for potentially dangerous conditions, engaging in regular maintenance and repairs, and posting adequate warnings of any remaining hazards. If a person is injured because of a property owner’s failure to monitor or warn of dangerous property conditions, the property owner may be held liable for injuries incurred as a result of the condition.
Accidents caused by unsafe property conditions can occur practically anywhere, from restaurants to stores to public sidewalks, and may involve:
- Slips and falls caused by spills, uneven pavement or flooring, damaged steps and/or handrails, improperly leveled elevators, and malfunctioning escalators
- Falling objects, such as shelved merchandise, hanging signs, or tree branches
- Falls from heights, such as scaffolding or ladders
- Dangerous chemical exposure
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Negligent security and/or inadequate lighting in parking structures, garages, or stairwells that facilitates an assault
Construction sites in towns and on roadways are especially hazardous for workers and people passing or driving by, with many construction accidents resulting from unreasonably dangerous worksite conditions. Please see our construction accidents, highway construction accidents, and ladder accidents pages for more information about being injured on or near a construction site.
Along with private property owners, such as business owners and homeowners, public property owners, such as cities, counties, and the State of Illinois, may be held liable for injuries caused by negligent maintenance and/or failure to warn of hazards. The attorneys at Speers, Reuland & Cibulskis, P.C. have experience handling claims against public entities as well as private parties.
