Top Chicago Premises Liability Attorneys
Premises liability refers to the legal responsibility of property or landowners to maintain their premises (i.e. property) in a reasonably safe manner. If someone is seriously injured — in a fall, because of negligent security, or in some other manner — because the property was unreasonably dangerous, the property owners (or people in control of the property) are responsible.
To investigate suspected premises liability injuries, such as unsafe conditions at a business, school or public venue resulting in serious injury or death, you must contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
