In Illinois, owners and property managers have a duty to keep their premises safe for the public. Failure to maintain this duty, resulting in injury or death to an individual is actionable. For example, failure to provide a warning side indicating a slippery floor, causing serious neck or back injuries or failure to provide adequate security resulting in the assault, serious injury or death of a loved one.
Another example and actual case occurred when an individual entered another person's property and used a ladder. The ladder rungs broke and the individual sustained such traumatic injuries that she died. The owner of a property had a duty to keep their premises safe and a property negligence lawsuit was filed.
