That’s right, free consultation. We do not charge a fee unless there is a recovery of compensation. The legal term that describes responsibility for accidents that occur due to the negligent maintenance, operation, or design of a property is called “Premises Liability.” In Illinois, property owners, landlords, and property maintenance workers can be held “liable” for personal accident injuries if those injuries were incurred as the result of a hazardous property condition.

Businesses and property owners are also legally obligated to maintain a safe work and living environment. When slip, trip and fall accidents do occur, people can recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages and long-term care, if in fact the accident was a result of negligence on another person’s property. This fundamentally includes all types of property including:

  • Office Space and Commercial Property
  • Private Residencies
  • Parking Lots and Parking Ramps
  • Supermarkets and Grocery Stores
  • Shopping Malls and Strip Malls
  • Swimming Pools
  • Hotels and Motels
  • Casinos
  • Restaurants

Common types of “Premises Liability” accident claims are a result of icy, wet, or slippery conditions. Uneven, cracked or broken sidewalks and pavement are very common. But slip, trip and fall accidents also happen frequently for the following reasons:

  • Badly Conceived or Poorly Constructed Playground Equipment
  • Falling Merchandise
  • Falling Debris from Ladders or Scaffolding
  • Elevator and Escalator Accidents
  • Inadequate Lighting
  • Construction or Manufacturing Design Flaws
