Slip and falls can take place almost anywhere you visit. These types of accidents occur on a daily basis in shopping malls, restaurants, office buildings, grocery stores, sidewalks, parking lots and countless other locations throughout Illinois. Under premises liability law, property owners have a duty to maintain safe conditions on their properties so that visitors are not injured. When an unsafe condition exists, the property owner must remedy the hazard or post visible warnings of the dangerous condition. When a property owner fails to provide a safe environment, the owner can be held liable for injuries resulting from a slip and fall incident.
