Chicago Premises Liability Attorney
Experienced Advocacy for Injured People Across the U.S.
Premises liability is a legal theory that holds businesses and private owners responsible for injuries that happen on their property. For example, if someone breaks their arm because of unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, they may be able to file a premises liability claim against the owner.
These claims are based on negligence, meaning the owner knew (or should have known) that their property was unsafe, but didn’t take action to fix the conditions.
Our premises liability lawyers handle many different types of cases, including:
- Amusement park accidents
- Burn injuries
- Dog bites
- Injuries caused by security guards
- Lead exposure
- Slip & falls
- Swimming and pool injuries
To have a successful premises liability case, you must prove that the property owner was negligent. This can mean they didn’t provide fencing around pools, ignored deteriorating or broken structural elements, or otherwise knowingly failed to provide a safe environment.
Each case depends on the laws in the particular state the accident happened. Some states will throw out a case if the person injured was trespassing. We represent clients in all 50 states; contact us to see if you have a premises liability case.

Some of Our Premises Liability Case Results
$250,000 for Drowning Victim’s Family
A healthy 24-year-old man - with no health conditions, medication needs, or history of drug abuse - went for a morning swim in a Days Inn pool. The man was a strong swimmer, however his family found him drowned in the deep end several hours later. Health Department inspections found more than a dozen violations against the Inn’s swimming pool. We were able to obtain a $250,000 settlement for the victim’s wife and son.
$160,000 for Slip & Fall Victim
Our client slipped and fell down the back stairs in his apartment complex. The wooden stairs were deteriorating and warped from temperature changes, and the railing was loose and incomplete. Our client fractured his ankle in several places, requiring surgery and rendering him unable to work.
$100,000 to Bike Accident Victim
Our client, who was 15-years-old at the time, was riding a bicycle in the street when a car drove quickly toward her. She went onto the sidewalk to avoid the car, but had to swerve to avoid a recycling bin on the sidewalk. Our client crashed into a fence on a neighbor’s property, severely injuring her chest. Our client needed more than 80 stitches and extensive scarring and emotional trauma.
$30,000 for Child Hurt at Day Care
Our client’s son, who was just two-years-old at the time, fell off a kids-sized sofa at day care, breaking his elbow and fracturing his wrist. The day care was understaffed when the child fell.
