Premises liability is a legal theory that applies in personal injury accidents that occur on the property of another. Property owners and operators are obligated to ensure that their property is safe and free from hazards. If an accident or injury occurs on the property as a result of the failure to maintain a safe and hazard-free environment, the property owner or operator could be held liable.

Liability for Accidents on Another’s Property
Liability for a slip and fall accident or other accident on someone’s property depends, in large part, on the relationship between the victim and the property owner or operator. Property owners and managers have the greatest responsibility to protect invitees, or those persons invited onto the property for the benefit of the owner/occupier. Invitees can include patrons in a restaurant, customers in a retail store, or swimmers at a country club pool.
Property owners and operators must also take reasonable precautions to protect licensees from harm. Licensees are those persons who enter the property with the consent of the property owner, such a social guest in someone’s home.
Property owners and operators often seek to refute liability by arguing that the plaintiff should have been aware of the hazard and taken reasonable precautions. As a result of our extensive experience handling accident and injury lawsuits, our Chicago premises liability lawyers can anticipate these and other common defense arguments so that we are well-prepared to present evidence to support our client’s claim.
