Injuries due to hazards on another party’s property may be compensable with personal injury damages. However, the circumstances of the injury may limit the amount one may recover in damages. For instance, Illinois makes use of comparative negligence laws that reduce damages if the injured party is partially at fault for their own injury. In some cases, it can even preclude someone from recovering damages at all.

Illinois Comparative Negligence Law

Illinois’s comparative negligence law states that if someone is partially at fault for their own injury, the damages they are entitled to recover are reduced in proportion to the amount of fault they have. For instance, if you have been injured on someone’s property and a jury finds you to be 20% at fault for that injury, your damages would be reduced by 20%.

Premises liability cases involve injuries on another party’s property. The responsible party might be the land owner, the owner of a store, an on-site property manager, or maintenance providers. In some cases, these injuries are entirely preventable, and they may result from failure to adequately maintain the property.

Negligent maintenance cases are the result of poor maintenance of the property where your injury occurred.
