Holding Property Owners Accountable For Dangerous Conditions

If you are injured by unsafe conditions on someone else's property, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. This area of law is known as premises liability.

At Chadwick & Lakerdas in Chicago, Illinois, our lawyers are ready to represent you in any type of premises liability case. For over 30 years, our attorneys have guided victims of accidents on dangerous properties through the process of seeking compensation for their injuries. Our reputation speaks for itself.

Examples Of Premises Liability

The negligence of a property owner or manager can set the stage for a catastrophic injury. Property owners have a responsibility to protect visitors or to warn them of unsafe property conditions. The following are just a few examples of property owner negligence:

  • Broken or missing fences that allow children to play in dangerous areas
  • Cracked or uneven sidewalks
  • Poorly lit halls and stairs
  • Icy sidewalks
  • Slippery floors in stores
  • Torn carpeting that creates a tripping hazard
  • Broken stairs or railings
  • Negligent security

Seek Help Before Time Runs Out

Proving a property owner was negligent is not an easy task. Illinois law requires you to prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the hazard and did not take reasonable steps to remedy it. Our lawyers have the skill and resources to thoroughly investigate your case and seek the compensation you deserve.
