Chicago Premises Liability Attorney
Have You Been Injured On Someone Else's Property?
Premises liability is the law by which a person or entity is held liable
for the injuries that occurred on his or her property. The laws of premises
liability can be applied to homes, storefronts, factories, and more. Both
public and private spaces must adhere to the safety standards set forth
for them and failure to do so could result in a premises liability claim
or lawsuit if an injury occurs.
In order to hold someone accountable under premises liability, you must
be able to prove four specific elements:
- The property owner owed you a legal duty;
- The legal duty was breached by the owner;
- Your injuries were a result of this breach of duty; and
- Specific damages can be linked to your injuries.
