Owners and managers of residential, commercial, and even governmental property located in the State of Illinois have a duty of care to maintain a reasonably safe environment for others. This idea falls under an area of law known as premises liability.
If the owner or manager is aware, or should be aware, that a safety hazard exists, it is their responsibility to address it in a timely manner. Some examples of a liability that may exist on a property include slippery and icy surfaces, poorly lit parking lots, and improperly secured areas.
When the failure to address a safety issue by a property owner or manager occurs, it can have serious consequences. Employees, guests, and others may fall victim to the hazards that exist, and suffer injury. With a major injury to attend to, victims could find themselves experiencing medical expenses piling up, an inability to work and earn an income, and numerous other hardships.
In these situations, the negligent parties should be held fully responsible for their inaction.
