Lake County Premises Liability Attorney

Lawyer for Slip and Falls, Store Accidents and Amusement Park Injuries in Grayslake, Gurnee

Libertyville Premises Liability Attorney

When you own or lease property and allow other people to enter into or onto your property, you are responsible for keeping your guests safe. This also means that if you have been invited—either explicitly or implied—into or onto someone else's property, that person assumes responsibility for your safety. If you are somehow injured while you are on the property, the owner or occupant could be liable for any injuries that you sustained. At The Law Office of Brian M. Laughlin, PC, our experienced team represents victims who have been injured in all types of premises liability accidents.

Skilled Injury Lawyer Serving Libertyville and Mundelein

A large percentage of premises liability injuries are caused by some type of negligence. Negligent design, negligent operation, negligent maintenance, and even negligent security could leave a property owner responsible for a victim's injuries. Common examples of premises liability accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents caused by spills or wet floors;
  • Trip-and-fall accidents caused by uneven carpeting or broken floor tiles;
  • Staircase accidents;
  • Falling equipment or merchandise at a retail outlet;
  • Injuries sustained on amusement park rides; and
  • Dog bites.

Injuries that occur because of poor lighting, inadequate training, broken security systems, or a failure to warn of existing hazards could also result in owner liability.

Proving Liability in an Illinois Premises Liability Case

At The Law Office of Brian M. Laughlin, PC, we understand that it can be difficult to recover compensation after an accident - especially if you try to do so without the help an attorney. In order to collect damages, you will need to prove several important elements. First, you must show that the owner of the property owed you a duty of care. The extent of this duty depends on the type of property and why you were there. Next, you must prove that a dangerous condition existed and that the owner knew about the condition. You will also need to show that the owner breached the duty of care by failing to address the dangerous condition properly. Finally, you must prove that the dangerous condition is what caused you to suffer injuries.
