Naperville Premises Liability Lawyer

Mokena property owner negligence lawyer

Attorney for Injuries at Private Residences and Public Venues in Plainfield, Joliet, and Will County

When a person suffers a personal injury, they can take legal action to pursue financial compensation from a person or organization that was responsible. When injuries take place on someone else's property, including at someone's home or in a public building or establishment, an injured person may pursue a premises liability claim against the property owner or the tenant who was in control of the property. To be successful, it is important to obtain representation from a lawyer who has experience prosecuting these types of cases and obtaining compensation for injury victims.

For more than a decade years, Attorney Michael J. Lichner has been working on behalf of injured people to help them achieve justice. He has helped his clients recover millions of dollars for a wide variety of different types of injuries, and he is prepared to help you take the necessary legal action to hold a negligent property owner responsible for your damages. Our firm has the knowledge and resources to pursue complex cases involving large corporations and insurance companies, and we will not rest until you are made whole.

Understanding Premises Liability

Property owners and residential or commercial tenants have what is known as a "duty of care" toward their visitors or customers. This means that they are required to take all necessary measures to protect the safety of those who are legally allowed to enter or use the property. Any known hazards that could cause harm to visitors should be repaired, or warning signs or other methods should be used to inform visitors about the risk of injury presented by these hazards. Injured people can pursue compensation from a negligent property owner or tenant who failed to meet their duty of care.

Premises liability cases may involve:

  • Slip, trip, and fall injuries - Wet or slippery floors and damaged walking surfaces are some of the most common hazards that result in injuries to visitors to a property. Some forms of negligence that can make a property owner liable for these types of injuries include failure to clean up spilled liquids, failure to repair hazards such as torn carpets or missing floor tiles, or allowing an unnatural accumulation of snow or ice to build up on sidewalks.
  • Restaurants and entertainment venues - In addition to fall injuries, patrons of bars, restaurants, concert venues, or sports stadiums may suffer harm due to inadequate security, fights with other people, assaults, or food poisoning. Depending on the circumstances of the injury, the owner of the establishment or a company that organized an event may be held liable for victims' damages.
  • Dog bites and attacks - Whether they occur on private property or in public places, dog bites can result in serious harm. A dog's owner can be held liable for injuries inflicted by their animal, as long as the victim was allowed to be in the location where the incident took place and they did not provoke the dog into attacking.
