Common Examples Of Negligent Maintenance Or Properties Leaving People At Risk

The owner or manager of a property is responsible for keeping it in safe conditions for people who work, live, visit or shop there. Common causes of slip, trip and fall injuries in defective properties such as apartment buildings, office buildings, stores, parking lots and other public and private places include:

  • Slippery floors and poorly laid carpets and rugs
  • Inadequate lighting or other security features
  • Standing water or accumulated ice and snow on steps, walkways and entrances
  • Lack of handrails on stairs
  • Slippery or cracked stairways
  • Insecure shelving
  • Lack of safety measures at public or private swimming pools

Illinois’ Premises Liability Act spells out the reasonable care that property owners or occupiers (such as tenants) owe people who may enter and use land and/or buildings. Namely, they should:

  • Warn people of dangerous conditions on their premises
  • Take reasonable steps to protect people who may visit or use their properties from risky conditions, even if they are obvious
  • Warn people about hidden defects or dangers, including things that might be harmful if misused

The liable party in a premises liability claim may be the owner, manager or tenant. If our premises liability attorneys represent you, we will conduct a thorough investigation to identify all responsible parties and hold them accountable to compensate you.
