Injured Because of a Property Owner’s Negligence in the Joliet or Chicagoland Area?
The Illinois Premises Liability Act states that property owners have the duty to take reasonable care of the premises to ensure a safe environment for others. If you have suffered an injury on another person’s property, whether residential or commercial, due to the owner’s negligent care and maintenance of the property, they may be liable. A property owner is responsible for proper maintenance of their property and is required to correct any premises safety issues in a timely manner. If you suffer an injury due to a safety hazard on the premises caused by neglect, you can hold the property owner liable.
Slip & Fall Accident Victim
Slips and falls, potholes, wet or uneven floors, improperly stored or shelved equipment, cracked sidewalks, improperly secured fixtures, and other dangerous conditions are only a few examples of instances that could prompt a premises liability claim.
