Premises Liability Lawyers In Chicago, IL

As a visitor or customer on someone’s property, you expect to be protected. But when a property owner fails to keep you safe, you may deserve compensation. Let Willens Injury Law help you.

person slips in hallway

When you go to work, go shopping, or visit a movie or restaurant, you should be safe from harm. If the property owner was negligent and you get injured as a result, they may be legally obligated to compensate you. Towards that end, Willens Injury Law Offices can help you claim the compensation you deserve by developing a premises liability case.  Talk to us in a free consultation if you have any questions about your situation. Or if you would like to learn more about what makes up a premises liability case, read on for an overview.

What Is Premises Liability?

In simple terms, premises liability is the legal concept by which property owners have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe so that their occupiers or guests do not suffer foreseeable injuries.This means that a property owner (or manager) must either:

  • apply reasonable care to detect and fix hazardous conditions on their premises, or
  • provide guests with ample warnings of the hazardous conditions on the premises.

If a property owner was negligent and failed this duty, and if that negligence has led to a guest’s injury, the owner or manager may be held liable.

In Illinois, the law on premises liability is 740 ILCS 130 or the Premises Liability Act. This gives you the right to file a legal claim against a negligent property owner or manager that you believe has caused your injury.

Examples Of Accidents Under Premises Liability

Many accidents seem innocent at first, but they may actually be a result of a property owner’s negligence. Here are some scenarios that may be considered premises liability cases:

Slip-and-fall accidents on unattended slippery floors
Tripping on uneven stairs or pathways
Snow and ice accidents
Electrocution from unsafe wiring or switches
Accidents on unmaintained decks or balconies
Accidents due to inadequate lighting
Dog bites and pet animal attacks
Drowning incidents at unsafe swimming pools
Elevator or escalator accidents
Amusement park accidents
Fire or burn injuries due to lack of building fire protection
Injuries from toxic chemicals or fume leaks
Assault or other injuries due to inadequate building security

I find Matt to be a very hard worker, incredibly bright and the type of person that when someone gives him a problem, it is no longer theirs – it is his.

– M.H. a defense attorney

You may notice that premises liability accidents can happen almost anywhere – at stores, restaurants, bars and clubs, offices, apartment buildings, even at the home of someone you know and trust.

Facing a negligent property owner can be complicated, whether it’s a large company or a neighbor down the street. Don’t let this discourage you from looking at your legal options, especially if you truly need reimbursement for your injuries. Talk to a reliable attorney who can guide you on making the best steps.



Elements Of A Premises Liability Case

Just because you got injured on someone else’s property does not automatically mean that he or she is liable. You must prove these specific elements for your premises liability case to be valid:

  • That the property owner had a duty of care to you as a visitor
  • That there was a dangerous condition on the premises
  • That the property owner (or whoever was in control of the premises) knew or should have known of the dangerous condition
  • That the owner failed to use reasonable care to detect, fix, or warn of the danger
  • That this failure resulted in your injury as a guest or visitor

Proving these elements takes an in-depth knowledge of the law and how they apply to your case. An injury lawyer with experience in premises liability accidents can help you establish these elements and build you a winning case.

Were You A Legal Guest?

In general, premises liability applies only when the person injured is a legal visitor. This means that he or she was invited or permitted to enter the premises, such as a social guest, an employee, or a customer.

Property owners have no duty to protect trespassers or those who enter their property without permission. The only duty that property owners owe trespassers is to avoid getting them injured through “willful and wanton conduct. ”Illinois courts have also found exceptions to this trespasser rule, such as if the trespasser was a child who was too young to understand the law and the danger in the property.

Thus, except in rare exceptions, only legal visitors can pursue a premises liability claim.

Drowning Is Found To Be Leading Cause of Accidental Death in Young Children

Although drowning is the leading cause of injury death for children under the age of five, and one of the top causes of injury death for all children, these drowning deaths are generally preventable.

The loss of a child is a terrible tragedy, and even more so when it is preventable.

The Hard Facts

In the US, about 3500 people die each year in unintentional, non-boating drownings. About one in five of these people are children 14 and younger. And about five times more children suffer near-drownings that can result in permanent brain injury and other injuries.

The children most at risk are those aged 1-4. About 30% of all unintentional injury deaths in this age group are due to drowning. Most of these children drown in home swimming pools.

Preventing Deaths

With this high number of accidental deaths and even higher numbers of injury deaths, prevention is crucial. It’s also straightforward. Swimming pools are naturally attractive to children, who approach them with curiosity or memory of enjoyment from spending time at the pool with parents.

Supervision, of course, is crucial to saving the lives of children this age, but so is a basic level of safety features. A fence separating the house from the pool reduces the risk of a 1-4-year-old drowning in the pool by 83%. For above-ground pools, simply removing the access ladder protects most children. Toys, flotation devices, and other attractive objects should be removed from the pool when adults leave the area.

Defenses In A Premises Liability Case

When you decide to bring a premises liability case forward, the property owner (defendant) may defend themselves using certain elements involving the case. You’ll need to anticipate a premises liability defense using the following arguments:

Assumption of risk

This defense states that if you were aware of the dangerous condition in the premises yet ignored it, you already assumed or accepted the risk of getting injured.
Open and obvious danger

The defendant may say that the dangerous condition in the premises was so “open and obvious” that they did not have to warn you about it.
Release from liability

You’ve probably experienced going to an amusement park, a public pool, a sports complex, or any similar establishment that required you to sign a waiver. This waiver typically releases the establishment from injury liability, so if you were injured on their premises, the establishment could no longer be held liable.
Immunity under another law

Certain laws may grant immunity to certain properties. For instance, the Illinois Recreational Use of Land and Water Areas Act grants immunity to owners of hunting or conservation property.
Comparative negligence

This happens when you are partially at fault in the accident. If the defendant establishes that you contributed to the accident, but your contribution was less than 50 percent, your compensation may be reduced accordingly. For instance, if you were 20 percent at-fault, your compensation will be reduced by 20 percent.
Contributory negligence

This also depends on your share of the fault. If the defendant establishes that you contributed more than 50 percent to the accident, you may not be able to collect compensation at all.

As discussed above, trespassers have no legal right to claim compensation under premises liability.

Any of these defenses can critically damage your claim. This is why it’s important for you to choose a premises liability lawyer who has experience in this field. Your attorney should be able to meet these defenses with robust arguments and the skill to make the law work for you.

Premises Liability and Property Owner’s Responsibility

In Illinois, all property owners owe a duty of reasonable care to visitors of their property, and if they do not live up to this duty, injury victims may have grounds to bring a premises liability action. Property owners have a responsibility to make sure their property is free of hazards that can cause injury. This includes the risk of:

In many states, a distinction is made between invitees, people who are invited to a property for the purpose of business, and licensees, people who are invited for social purposes, but not in Illinois. In Illinois, residential property owners have an equal responsibility to commercial property owners. This includes landlords as well as individual property owners.

What You May Be Entitled To

Premises liability accidents – such as slip-and-falls and dog bites – often sound straightforward and simple. Not many people realize how serious the injuries can be and how great the losses the injured may suffer. Depending on the type of accident, the injuries can include life-altering conditions such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injuries, serious fractures, severe wounds and bleeding, paralysis, and amputation.

If you have or someone in your family has suffered from such an injury, you know it’s not an easy burden. You may deserve to be compensated for the following and more:

Medical costs such as hospital bills and medication expenses
Missed work/lost income
Lost ability to earn
Pain and suffering
Emotional distress

If the accident was so devastating that it caused the death of a loved one, you may have a wrongful death case. In such a tragedy, the lost life can never be replaced. However, you may find some form of relief if you successfully fight for your fair compensation. You may be reimbursed for damages such as funeral and burial expenses, lost companionship, and lost benefits.

Don’t dismiss your accident as a simple slip-up, especially if it has landed you or your loved one in the hospital and cost you a significant amount of money. Let a reliable attorney assess the value of your case and determine your best options for obtaining compensation.

It's been over a year since I was involved in my car accident - everyone knows that is a very stressful time for the injured party. I considered going through the whole process on my own but I quickly realized the insurance company was NOT my friend. I reached out to Willens Law Offices, met Matt and the attorney that would be handling my claim, David Baez. David was excellent, I'm big on communication and anytime I texted David; sometimes ad nauseam, he would always respond quickly and professionally. I had a ton of questions, and David answered everyone of them to my satisfaction. I could not have asked for a better attorney to fight for me, I have extremely high expectations and they were exceeded consistently.

I had an accident injuries and based on google reviews I reached out to Willens Law Offices in Chicago. David Baez helped me with my case. He came to meet us and understood our case in detail and he guided me all the steps of the process. I had advices from friends that you are unnecessarily going after the process and nothing will happen. David made everything worthwhile and he gave right advice always which was right for my health and right for the case. He worked very hard on my case for 2 years collecting all the paperwork, talking to physicians and taking care of my case and making it in my favor. I was truly blessed by having David Baez handling my case who was extremely professional, great ethics and felt as my family with him. After the injuries and pain I was afraid to select one but my God made me select the right one. If anyone feel they need accident injuries lawyer then I will only recommend David Baez. Nobody will beat his hard work, professionalisms, ethics and perseverance and yet down to earth and honest. Thank you for everything you have done for me and blessings from my heart for his success.

I was involved in an accident back in last year and was searching for an attorney who looked like I can trust. I found Matt Willens and I am thankful. I called him up just to get a feel for him as a person and I could tell right away that he truly cared, not only about me but my family too. To say that he fought for us would be an understatement. He was ready to go to trial! Luckily we settled and it was for more money than I imagined, especially after my initial talk with the insurance company. Thanks Matt!

I’m rarely compelled to leave a review for anyone but I felt I needed to show my gratitude.From the first time I spoke with Matt Willens on the phone I actually felt like he was there for me, looking after my best interests and not his own. That’s rare in my experience.Matt is an absolute pro and I wouldn’t think to call or recommend anyone else if I or a loved one were injured in the future. Thanks Matt!

When I first contacted Willens law office, I just wanted to make sure everyone was paid after I was rear ended and I wasn’t the one doing it. My correspondence was primarily with David, he was always patient when I was slow to get him information and ended up calling me with great news after almost a year of back and forth with the at-fault insurance company.I can’t thank David and the Willens law office enough.

Willens Law came highly recommended after I was badly injured when hit by an out of control car. I in turn most highly recommend Willens Law based on my great experience over the past year and a half.I am very pleased with both the outcome of my case as well as the experience working with Matt Willens and David Baez throughout the process.I had no specific expectation regarding a case outcome, seeking only ‘the best outcome possible.’ I certainly believe my case outcome was a great outcome. And I strongly believe that outcome was a direct result of fantastic work done by Matt and David.From beginning to end Matt and David were great to work with. They did a great job setting expectations; explaining what was to happen, including the why and the how; guiding me through the steps I needed to take; and answering both my “need to know” and “just curious” questions. They were always extremely prompt and clear in their guidance and responses to me.A silver lining in a tough situation was working with Matt and David, both of whom I came to respect professionally and like personally. I do most highly recommend Willens Law to others who may need such services.

After being in an Uber accident about a year ago, I reached out to Willens Law to assist me through the settlement process. I had the pleasure of working with David Baez. From the start he was very personable and professional. He was always willing to educate me on the process and made sure I understood each step before going forward. Even after receiving my settlement, David has been willing to assist with any questions related to my case. I would highly recommend Willens Law.

I reached out to Willens Law Offices following a car accident that my girlfriend and I were involved in, and we met with David Baez for an in-person consultation shortly after. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and gave us confidence and peace of mind in a situation where we felt initially felt completely overwhelmed. There were times when we felt the communication could have been more proactive, but David was always responsive when we felt the need to check-in, even if there were no significant updates on our case. The process took a little longer than anticipated, but David was honest, thorough, and professional throughout.Overall, great experience and I'd recommend to anyone in need. Thank you David!

After I was injured, and after researching Chicago's best law firms, I found Willens Law and read their reviews. After meeting Matt, I retained their services, along with the special efforts of his Partner, David Baez.They handled my case in a professional, efficient manner, while keeping me regularly informed. We worked incredibly well together, and won a very nice settlement. You would be foolish not to consider Willens Law for your Counsel, as I did. I highly recommend them!Ed Dybas

Working with Willens Law was a pleasure. They were responsive and extremely pleasant whenever I had questions or concerns. In my case, I personally took a little longer than I should have to start the process on my end, but David was able to pickup on my delay and process my personal injury case in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Willens Law and David when looking for an attorney to represent you in a case.

I had a tremendous experience with this law firm, and I would highly recommend them. I had a bicycle injury caused by a negligent Uber car, and when I was first doing research and calling law firms all over the Chicago area to find representation, Matt Willens himself returned my call personally within ten minutes. I found that to be a huge integrity move as every other firm I contacted had a lower level employee call me back. Nothing wrong with that per se, but to have the lawyer whose name is on the door personally return my call meant a hell of a lot to me and was ultimately why I decided to meet with them first.I made an appointment and met Mr. Willens and the fantastic young attorney David Baez in their offices and they were wonderful to deal with. They are down-to-earth, funny, intelligent, tenacious, capable, experienced lawyers who explained the entire process to me in a way I could understand and made me feel comfortable and confident, and we were off and running with my case.I work in a law firm and I know exactly how slowly the wheels of justice turn, and my case was settled in about half the time that these things normally take! Amazing results. Mr. Baez and his team were incredible throughout and kept me informed every step of the way, and negotiated a higher settlement number and a lower fee for the insurance company in the eleventh hour which meant more money in my pocket!! I wholeheartedly recommend this law firm for your personal injury case. They are highly skilled and I couldn't be happier. This organization is fantastic and they will produce results for you.

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle My Case?

You are not legally required to have a personal injury attorney to handle your injury claim. You could file all the necessary paperwork yourself and represent yourself in court. However, your chances of winning your case and getting the compensation you deserve are much higher if you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Why You Shouldn't Settle Directly With An Insurance Company

Insurance providers will try to get you to settle quickly. In the midst of your crisis, they might offer you what seems like a large dollar amount. The problem is they rarely make an offer of settlement for the true full cost of your damages. Don’t be misled, hospital bills aren’t the only things for which you will need compensation. You also need to keep in mind the suffering and pain associated with your traumatic event.
