How will an Illinois court look at the case of a customer who slips on ice in a parking lot, stumbles over a crack in a sidewalk, slips on a foreign substance inside the store, fails to negotiate a step, or is assaulted by another patron? Which parties may be liable? What happens when the case goes to court?
