Attorneys Assisting With Injuries Caused By Property Owner Negligence in Illinois

The owner or tenant of public or private property has the responsibility to keep their property reasonably safe for the people on their property. Failure to protect the safety of people who are allowed to enter property can be considered negligence, and when injuries occur as a result, a property owner may be held responsible for these damages.

The premises liability attorneys of Tomasik Kotin Kasserman, LLC understand the complex legal issues involved when someone is injured on someone else's property. We have the experience, knowledge, and financial resources to investigate the circumstances of an injury and prove liability, ensuring that our clients receive the full and fair compensation they deserve.

Types of Premises Liability Cases

There are a wide variety of situations in which a person can suffer injuries because of the negligence of a property owner. These may include:

  • Slip and Fall Injuries - A property owner may be liable for injuries which occur because they failed to provide warnings about slippery surfaces, because they failed to perform proper maintenance to address tripping or falling hazards, or because of an unnatural accumulation of snow or ice.
  • Dog and Animal Attacks - Dog bites can cause permanent disfigurement or disability, and an owner may be held liable for any injuries caused by their animal, regardless of whether they knew the animal was dangerous.
  • Schools and Daycare Facilities - Children may be injured because a school or daycare facility did not take steps to address potential hazards, because of improper supervision, or because of inadequate background checks for staff members.
  • Stores, Malls, and Restaurants - In addition to injuries which occur because of improper maintenance, inadequate lighting, or failure to address hazardous conditions, owners of commercial establishments may be liable for injuries which take place because of improper security.
  • Amusement Parks - Patrons may suffer injuries at amusement parks because of improper ride maintenance, failure to provide warnings about the risks of using certain rides, or inadequate employee training.
  • Sports, Recreation, and Swimming Pools - Improperly maintained sports equipment or recreational vehicles can harm those who use them, and failure to provide security or lifeguards at a swimming pool can lead to drowning.
  • Landlord Liability - A landlord who fails to properly maintain the property they own may be liable for injuries which are suffered by tenants or visitors as a result.
  • Government Buildings and Property - Injuries which occur in buildings, parks, or other facilities owned and managed by local, state, or national governments can involve a variety of complex legal issues, and the requirements for establishing liability in these cases are often more stringent.
