Property owners may be held liable for inadequate lighting accidents
Inadequate lighting on the premises of a business or residence can pose extreme health and safety hazards to visitors. If a stairway or walkway is inadequately lit, a person may suffer from severe injury as a result of a slip and fall accident. Furthermore, a lack of light can hide dangerous objects or safety hazards that are only visible in daylight. Many victims of inadequate lighting-related accidents fail to report their injuries because they are unaware of the property owner’s responsibility for their accident(s). An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to assess your premises liability case and help you make an informed decision regarding your case. If you have been injured as a result of a poorly lit area, you may be entitled to compensation. Call (312) 641-9200 to schedule a free consultation.
