Unsafe Premises

Slip, Trip, Fall …Who's Responsible?

Central Illinois Premises Liability Attorneys — Nicoara & Steagall

Premises liability is a legal term. The idea behind it, in English, is that the owners, caretakers or managers of any given property, public or private, have a responsibility to maintain reasonably safe conditions on that property. When they fail to meet this responsibility and innocent people are injured or killed as a result — the law allows those harmed to recover compensation for their losses.

If you've been seriously injured because of a property owner's negligence — contact our attorneys in Peoria, Illinois, today for a free consultation.

At Nicoara & Steagall, we handle premises liability cases throughout Central Illinois, aggressively pursuing serious injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of both individuals and families. To be honest, premises liability cases can be difficult to prevail on. You have to establish that the defendant created the condition, that the responsible party knew of it or should have known of it, or that the nature of the business was such that the condition was reasonably foreseeable and yet the owner did nothing significant to address it.

Common Types of Premises Liability Claims Include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Trip and fall accidents
  • Accidents and injuries caused by negligent security
  • Assaults in poorly lit areas
  • Assaults involving landlord negligence (broken locks, windows, etc.)
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Retail accidents
  • Grocery/supermarket accidents

Whether you were injured in a slip or trip and fall accident, by falling merchandise, or in a dimly lit restaurant parking lot — the decades of experience our lawyers have will be a valuable asset. We know what evidence is required to prevail on these claims. We know how and where to look for it. We know how to establish those facts in court and we know how to present that information to a jury in clear and convincing ways.
