Our Chicago-Based Premises Liability Attorneys Represent Clients Nationwide
Many types of negligence or deliberate wrongdoing may lead to injuries in various settings. Unsafe conditions in any situation, such as when an injured person is sharing the road with a drunk driver or slips and falls on an oily floor in a warehouse or big-box store, can lead to grave consequences.
When preventable injuries are caused by safety hazards on the premises belonging to any property owner, whether residential or commercial, the injured person can pursue compensation through a premises liability claim or lawsuit.
At Ori Law Group, our personal injury attorneys will apply decades of legal experience to any case where the negligence of someone else – an individual, corporation or government agency – has caused you unnecessary harm.

About Premises Liability Claims
Property owners and managers are obligated by a duty of care to provide a reasonably safe environment for those who visit, work or reside on their premises. These owners or managers are expected to regularly inspect and maintain their premises so as to prevent safety hazards or property defects that could pose safety risks. They are legally obliged to repair dangerous conditions in a timely manner or warn others about them until they can be repaired.
Any type of property can fall under premises liability, including retail stores, malls, theaters, restaurants, sports stadiums, entertainment venues, bars, office buildings, apartment buildings, schools, universities, grocery stores and more. When people in charge of properties neglect property defects and hazards and injuries are a result, they may be held legally liable for the injured person’s damages through a claim or lawsuit.
These can be complex cases requiring close investigation that will prove that the owner or occupier of the premises engaged in negligence. It is important to remember that, just because you were injured on someone else’s property, this does not automatically mean that it was the owner’s fault. To protect your rights, ask a lawyer to investigate and evaluate the facts of your case.
Causes Of Accidents On Dangerous Premises
Slip-and-fall accidents are a common cause of premises liability claims. Others include fires, dog bites, toxic fumes, flooding, criminal attacks, drownings, elevator and escalator accidents, falling objects, acts of violence and more.
Examples of negligence that may lead to a premises liability claim include the following, caused or allowed by careless property owners, managers and other responsible individuals or companies:
- Slippery floors
- Faulty electrical wiring
- Torn or loose carpets
- Uneven surfaces, such as cracked sidewalks
- Poorly stacked merchandise
- Negligent security
- Inadequate or broken lighting
- Loose stairs or railings
- Poorly maintained decks, balconies or landings
- Uncleared snow and ice
- Nonworking smoke detectors
- Blocked entrances and exits
If we handle your premises liability case, we will work hard to discover what caused your slip-and-fall or another type of accident on public or private property. We will include our findings in settlement negotiations, in mediation sessions or at trial.
