Property owners have a responsibility to keep their grounds safe for visitors and guests. When owners and property managers fail in their duty to ensure safety, accidents with serious injuries can occur. However, it can be difficult to prove negligence in such cases.

Premises Liability in Illinois
There are numerous scenarios in which a person may qualify for a premises liability claim. Some of the most common include:
- Slips and falls;
- Defective sidewalks;
- Insufficient security;
- Grocery and retail store accidents;
- Escalator accidents;
- Building code violations;
- Snow or water left on sidewalks;
- Dog bites;
- Exposure to toxic substances; and
- Swimming accidents and drownings.
Persons injured on the property of another party are not always entitled to compensation. For example, trespassers are generally not entitled to damages unless they can prove willful and wanton acts on the part of the property owner. For visitors and guests to pursue damages, they must show their injuries were caused by a property defect and the property owner or manager knew (or should have known) about the defect and failed to repair it. On the other hand, if a visitor or guest was already aware of (or should have been aware of) the defect and acted in an unsafe manner leading to injury, the owner may not be held liable.
If you or a loved one has been injured resulting from unsafe premises, be sure to retain as much evidence as possible and speak with a seasoned premises liability lawyer immediately. These cases can be difficult to prove and it is important to take action sooner rather than later.
