Best Premises Liability Attorney in Chicago

If you are injured as a result of a commercial property owner’s failure to maintain a business’s premises, it can leave you in a serious bind. The healing process can be lengthy, and your medical costs and lost earnings can add up quickly. Fortunately, you are not alone, and one of the best premises liability attorneys in Chicago can help. 

The Property Owner’s Duty of Care

When you head into a restaurant, shop, store, medical facility, or any other commercial enterprise, the property owner or manager owes you – as an invited guest – a duty of care. This duty amounts to maintaining the premises in the reasonably safe condition necessary to allow for the safe passage of guests like you (or to adequately warn you of the danger in question). Reasonable here refers to the level of care that other property owners and managers extend in similar circumstances. If the property owner fails to meet this responsibility and an accident ensues, he or she could face a premises liability claim. 

Your Claim

In order for your premises liability claim to proceed successfully, the following elements must be present:

  • The premises harbored a danger of one kind or another. An example is an entryway that incorporates a known tripping hazard. 
  • The owner or manager of the property knew or should have known about the danger. In this example, the tripping hazard is known (and has likely tripped someone else in the past).
  • The property owner or manager failed to identify and/or rectify the problem (either by removing or warning guests of the danger). In our example, the known tripping hazard was allowed to remain unchecked. 
  • The danger in question caused you to be injured and to suffer damages. If, for example, you trip over the hazard in the entryway and sustain a spinal cord injury in the process. 

Your Damages

The damages (your losses) associated with a premises liability claim can be immense, including:

  • Your medical expenses
  • Your lost wages
  • Your physical and emotional pain and suffering

Addressing your complete damages is the best way to help ensure your most complete recovery. 

Dangerous Conditions

The dangerous conditions that can lead to premises liability claims are quite varied, but some common causes include:

  • Outdoor walkways made slippery by snow, ice, and/or debris that is allowed to accumulate
  • Dangerously worn outdoor walkways
  • Uneven entryways that pose tripping hazards 
  • Ripped, uneven, bunched, frayed, or otherwise worn floor coverings
  • Spills and other slipping hazards that are left unattended
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Walkways crowded with obstacles
  • Dangerously designed or maintained staircases
  • Inadequate security
