Slip And Fall:

In Illinois thousands of injuries occur as a result of the negligence of the landlord or property owner who failed to maintain or created a dangerous condition on their premises. Accordingly, this type of negligence is also commonly known as premises liability. Municipalities and businesses who have caused or failed to address a defect on their land can be held responsible for the injuries that are caused to the plaintiff. Generally recoverable damages include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, etc.

Liability Of The Owner and Landlord:

The duty to maintain the premises free and clear of defects is the responsibility of the property owner. If a dangerous condition exists on the premises and the landlord or owner knew or should have known about it and has failed to warn the injured party of the defect, the plaintiff usually has a cause of action against the owner. Types of places where slip and falls commonly happen are;

  • Restaurants
  • Grocery stores
  • Churches
  • Gas Stations
  • Parking lots
  • City sidewalks
  • Residential sidewalks
  • Hotels
  • Residential Homes
Dangerous Conditions:

Types of dangerous conditions that can cause an injury may include the following;

  • Unnatural accumulation of snow, ice or rain

  • Loose or broken handrails
  • Loose steps
  • Loose carpeting
