Will County Premises Liability Lawyer

Attorney for Premises Liability Cases in Plainfield, Joliet, Bolingbrook, and Throughout Illinois

Premises Liability Attorney in Plainfield IL

When you have been injured on property belonging to another person, premises liability laws may provide you with an avenue for collecting the compensation you need as you heal and recover. Whether you were hurt outdoors on someone’s land, or you slipped and fell at the grocery store, the owner of the property could potentially be held liable for your injuries. At Flaherty Law, we understand that dangerous conditions exist in countless places, and when the negligence of a property owner leads to injury, we are prepared to help the injured victims seek justice.

Notable Case Result: $150,000 for a woman who was injured when she tripped and fell due to a small height variance between concrete slabs on a sidewalk outside of a strip mall. Read more.

Understanding Premises Liability

The collective body of law that makes property owners responsible for the safety of those who enter into or onto the property is known as premises liability law. The law requires owners or occupants to take reasonable steps in eliminating dangerous conditions and potential hazards before they can cause serious injury. When eliminating the hazard is not possible, the owner must provide sufficient notification or warning to those entering the premises. Failure to do either could leave the property owner fully liable for any injury a person may sustain as a result.

Common Premises Liability Issues

A premises liability accident can occur in many ways, and at Flaherty Law, our highly-skilled personal injury attorney is equipped to help no matter how your injury happened. Victims may be hurt by objects falling from poorly arranged store shelves, as a result of inadequate security, or due to a dangerous condition on the property. However, slip and fall or trip and fall incidents are among the most common causes of premises liability injuries. These kinds of falls are often the result of:

  • Slippery floors without warning signs;
  • Poor maintenance;
  • Broken sidewalks;
  • Uneven floors or carpeting;
  • Damaged staircases;
  • Missing railings;
  • Icy or snow-covered parking lots and walkways; and
  • Inadequate lighting.

While some premises liability injuries are relatively minor, including bumps and bruises, or sprains and strains, others are much more serious. Slip and falls, for example, can cause severe, sometimes permanent physical damage, such as broken bones, head and neck injuries, spinal injuries, and even nerve damage and paralysis. Caring for such injuries often requires weeks and months of ongoing medical treatment, physical rehabilitation, and occupational therapy. Victims are frequently forced to miss work and may be unable ever fully return to their previous levels of activity.
