What is Premises Liability in Illinois?
Property grounds are known as premises. For example, if you are dining at a restaurant, the premises would include the facility and whatever surrounding property is owned or rented such as a parking lot. According to the Premises Liability Act, property owners have a duty to take reasonable actions to provide a safe environment for their guests.
Types of Property Owners Responsible for Maintaining Safe Premises
Attorney Ross J. Peters has handled numerous premises liability cases including slip and fall, fallen store inventory and defective equipment or conditions. Some examples of property owners include, but are not limited to:
- Business Owners
- Retail Merchants
- Restaurant Owners
In each case, these property owners must adhere to specific areas of responsibility that are reasonable. Conversely, guests must refrain from conduct that could cause an injury. For example, a property owner is expected to fix a faulty railing to prevent an injury, but he may not be held responsible for a person who decides to ride a skateboard on the railing.
