Stair use and injuries

Every year, over one million people in Illinois and throughout the United States are injured from using stairs. Even though women, young children and older adults tend to report the greater number of injuries, people of every age seek emergency care for bumps, fractures, sprains and strains. According to a recent study in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine, the rate of stair-use injuries is rising.

Suffering an ankle injury after a slip-and-fall accident

If an Illinois business fails to properly maintain its property or minimize hazards that may be found on the property, a person who injuries an ankle while visiting the premises could hold the business financially responsible. Because ankle injuries can be severe, the injured person could need extensive medical treatment.

Skateboarders and premises liability

Residential and commercial property owners in Illinois and elsewhere around the country generally get annoyed when skateboarders show up unannounced and uninvited in their spaces, and for good reason. Premises liability is a legal concept that holds both private homeowners and public business operators responsible for any injuries that occur on their property, especially if they were preventable.

Business owners must clear ice and snow in winter

Illinois business owners have a duty to keep guests on their premises safe from hazards all year round. In the winter months, they may have to work a little harder to keep their premises safe due to cold weather hazards like ice and snow. If they fail to do so, they may be held financially responsible for slip-and-fall accidents involving customers and staff.
