What Is Premises Liability Law?

Illinois premises liability law states property owners must keep their premises safe and free of hazards that could put patrons, tenants, visitors, or guests at risk. If a property owner is aware of a hazard but fails to do anything about it, they could be liable for the injuries or damage it causes.

It is important to note that property owners do not have the same responsibility to keep trespassers free from risks as they do guests or lessees. The law maintains they need to refrain from deliberately injuring trespassers, but they are not liable for other accidents. 

Common Premises Liability Accidents

A wide range of events could qualify as premises liability accidents. 

Below, we have listed and described some common examples:

  • A person slipping or falling because of slick, uneven, or poorly kept walking surfaces
  • A property owner failing to control their dog, allowing it to bite someone
  • An object falling and hitting a person
  • Someone sustaining an injury because of inadequate security, such as lights, locks, and surveillance systems
  • Exposed wires, damaged stairs, or other dangers harming a person

Proving Premises Liability Cases 

In premises liability cases, the burden of proof is on the injured party (the plaintiff). To prove that a property owner was negligent and responsible for their injuries, a plaintiff must demonstrate the following things:

  1. The responsible party (the defendant) owned or leased the property where the accident occurred
  2. The defendant failed to address hazards on their property that could cause injury 
  3. The plaintiff was on the defendant’s property when they sustained an injury
  4. There was a connection between the defendant’s negligence and the accident that caused the plaintiff’s injury

What Compensation Is Available for Premises Liability Injuries?

Plaintiffs in premises liability cases can recover economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are easier to quantify and include expenses with definite dollar amounts, such as medical bills or lost wages. Non-economic damages are more difficult to determine, including subjective things like pain and suffering or loss of quality of life.
