Chicago, IL Premises Liability Attorneys
Premise liability cases can be quite complicated and difficult to purse in the state of Illinois. In order to prevail, one must prove that the owner/manager of the site had notice of the dangerous condition and failed to fix it before someone was injured. Notice of the condition can be proven through actual notice. For example, such notice would be when someone who maintains the property mops a floor and fails to use a wet floor sign notifying others.
Constructive notice is proven by the amount of time that passes before the owner/manager repairs the danger. For instance, such as when a broken sidewalk is not repaired for several years. According to the state of Illinois, if you are less than 50% at fault of your own injuries, you can still recover damages.
