Personal Injury Lawyers Helping Those Hurt While on Another's Property in Illinois

When you enter someone else's property, you have a reasonable expectation that you will be free of any dangers or hazards that can cause you harm. Property owners, to an extent, are responsible for maintaining a safe environment that does not present a risk of harm or injury to any visitors or business guests. In some circumstances, this responsibility even extends to trespassers.

Slips and Falls in Illinois

Perhaps the most common lawsuits that can arise within the realm of premises liability are slip and fall incidents. Slip and fall accidents occur when something on the property owner's property causes a victim to slip, trip, or fall, causing the victim injury.

For instance, a person delivering a package who slips on an icy patch on a driveway and breaks her arm may have the standing to sue the property owner for damages suffered. Slip and falls can also occur in poorly lit stairwells or in grocery store aisles that have not been properly cleaned.

Status of the Visitor

Many states focus on the particular status of the visitor. For instance, trespassers may not be owed the same duty of care as someone who was actually invited onto the property (e.g. a houseguest or cable repairman). In other circumstances, courts will look to the property owner and their status with respect to the land.

A commercial property owner who has hundreds of people traverse their property on a daily basis may owe a different standard of care than a recluse homeowner who rarely lets people onto their property. An experienced premises liability attorney will be able to assess the situation best and determine relative degrees of liability that may apply to any given situation.
