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:

  1. The property owner owed you a legal duty;
  2. The legal duty was breached by the owner;
  3. Your injuries were a result of this breach of duty; and
  4. Specific damages can be linked to your injuries.
