Verdict in Illinois History:
Premises liability accidents refer to those accidents or personal injuries that occur as a result of a defect occurring on someone’s property. Whether, the injury occurs on an escalator, an elevator, as a result of negligent snow removal or at an amusement park, these cases fall within the category of premises liability litigation.
A landowner is responsible to maintain their property in a manner that is free from negligent defects, and to warn others about the negligent defects if they exist. Failure to comply with these conditions is negligence. Depending upon the nature of a persons visit on to the property, a landowner has varying degrees of responsibility to keep the property safe.
Premises liability cases are often complex and involve other areas of the law, including construction and product liability issues.
