Every year, thousands of Illinois residents are injured in serious accidents. These accidents often rise to the level of personal injury, due to any harm that occurs as a result of a person or entity’s carelessness.

For example, property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises and respond to hazards within a reasonable timeframe. Say that you inform your landlord that your stairs are broken. The landlord ignores your calls and emails for weeks, failing to respond to the hazard.
One day, you are walking up the stairs when the structure collapses underneath you, leading to a broken leg. If the landlord had fixed the stairs, you would not have sustained injuries—thus establishing his or her negligence.
