Slip and Fall/Premises Liability

Under premises liability law, property owners have a duty to maintain safe conditions on their properties so that visitors are not injured, and business owners must post visible warnings of unsafe conditions. Nonetheless, accidents are common and often happen in grocery stores, restaurants, office buildings, shopping malls, and parking lots. Slipping and falling is the most common premises liability accident. But injuries are also frequently caused by inadequate security, fires, explosions, and exposure to hazardous materials.

Our Illinois premises liability lawyers handle all types of cases, including injuries arising from:

  • Slippery or Wet Floors
  • A Spill Not Timely Cleaned up
  • Broken Steps
  • Poor Lighting
  • Broken or Missing Handrails
  • Faulty Elevators or Escalators
  • Uneven or Cracked Sidewalks
  • A Large Hole Without Barricades
  • Icy Sidewalks Not Timely Cleaned up
  • A Dangerous Condition Without Warnings Posted

Following an injury resulting from a property owner's failure to properly maintain the premises, you should report the accident to the police or security personnel, and get the names and addresses of any witnesses.
