Premises Liability FAQ

Power Rogers & Smith are premises liability lawyers based out of Chicago, Illinois, providing legal counsel to victims who have been injured because of a land owner's or an occupant's negligence. Here are some common questions that plaintiffs have about premises liability legal claims:

What constitutes "premises liability" under the law?

Generally, premises liability refers to the body of law that holds a landowner and/or possessor of property liable for injuries to others sustained on their property. A premises liability lawsuit often arises from a land owner's or occupant's failure to either correct a dangerous condition on their property or warn of its existence.

In order for you to file a premises liability claim, you must have been injured because the owner of your property failed to provide enough security for you and your family. Premises liability claims often involve injuries stemming from building problems such as poor lighting, weak locks, no access control, not enough or poorly trained guards, or poor management policies.

What is a plausible claim under premises liability?

In order to bring a successful claim, you must have been injured due to negligence on the part of the building owner or manager. If your injury was a result of malicious, reckless, or intentional misconduct on the building owner's part, or if the building owner, by not taking prudent care, caused your injuries, you may have a premises liability claim.
