    How Illinois Premises Liability Works

    In Illinois, certain property owners have legal duties and responsibilities toward others. When a property owner fails to meet these obligations, you have the right to bring an injury claim with the help of your premises liability attorney.

    Specifically, you have the right to pursue compensation if the property owner fails to exercise reasonable care in maintaining their property. Failing to take reasonable care could include:

    • A store not mopping up a spill
    • A small business not placing a warning sign near melted ice or a pool of water
    • A homeowner failing to pick up electric cords or toys from a walkway
    • A private property owner who allows a parking lot or sidewalk to fall into disrepair

    Because what constitutes reasonable care can vary from situation to situation, it is essential that you enlist the help of an experienced property owner negligence lawyer with Lawler Lawler Injury Law. We can conduct a thorough evaluation of your case and work to ensure careless property owners are held accountable for their negligence.


    Common Injuries in Premises Liability Accidents

    Some individuals involved in slips and falls and other accidents that happen while on another’s property escape without injury. Many others are not as fortunate, and they can suffer a range of injuries and harm. Such injuries may include:

    • Lacerations to the body
    • Bumps and bruises
    • Strains and sprains
    • Broken bones in the hand, wrist, hip, or leg
    • Injuries to the back and spinal cord
    • Traumatic brain injuries

    Individuals who are older or who have preexisting injuries are especially at risk of sustaining severe, even fatal, injuries in a premises liability accident.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    An experienced Illinois premises liability lawyer can assess the value of your case. This requires that your attorney consider not only the expenses and losses you have already sustained but also those you are likely to incur going forward.

    The more severe and permanent your injuries, the larger the damages award you can expect to receive. The extent of your emotional trauma can also play a role in your case’s value.

    While Illinois law does not require slip and fall injury victims to use an attorney’s services, there are numerous benefits to doing so. Filing a claim and pursuing a settlement or trial verdict are significantly more complex than they might first appear.

    An attorney can also free you from having to handle calls from insurance companies, attorneys, and others who are involved in your claim. To achieve the best possible outcome for your case, securing an Illinois liability claim attorney’s services is essential.

    Many premises liability cases will be settled rather than taken to trial, although the time it takes for every case to reach this point is different. Various factors can play a role, including the extent of your injuries, the availability of favorable evidence, and how willing both you and the property owner are to reach an agreement.

    Some cases can settle in a matter of weeks, while others may take months. Having a seasoned Illinois property negligence lawyer on your side can help you reach a settlement faster in many cases.
