Joliet Premises Liability Attorneys

Serving Injured Clients in Grundy County and Will County

Under Illinois Law, the owners (or occupiers) of a property are liable for accidents that occur on their premises. This is called premises liability. The most common premises liability lawsuits are "slip and fall" accidents, but there are many different types of premises liability cases. At the Law Offices of Tedone & Morton, P.C., we are experienced in handling all types of premises liability cases. We investigate each case we take and create an effective strategy to obtain maximum compensation.

Proving Premise Liability Cases

Just because you are injured on someone else's property does not mean you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. In order to prove that the owner is liable for your injuries you must prove that:

  • The defendant is the owner or occupier of the property on which the accident occurred.
  • You were allowed to be on that property. (You were not trespassing).
  • There was a hazard on the property that caused your accident.
  • The owner or occupier knew about the hazard (or should have known) and did not take the necessary steps to correct it.

There are many different types of hazards that can cause accidents, and these accidents can cause serious and even permanent injuries or death. Our firm has the skill and experience to handle a wide variety of premises liability cases including:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Trip and fall accidents
  • Stairway accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Falling merchandise
  • Accidents caused by ice and snow

  • Toxic fumes injuries
  • Negligent security
  • Dog bites
