Property Owners Should Be Responsible
Whether you are walking through a public space, visiting a business or relying on the owner of a property that you rent to keep that property secure, a negligent property owner can be a risk to your health and safety. You could stumble and fall, be bitten by a dog, be the victim of a crime or be harmed in another way.
At Minnillo & Jenkins Co., LPA, we work with personal injury clients in Ohio and Kentucky to protect their rights after a wide variety of accidents including premises liability cases. When the property owners, you rely on, have not done the work to ensure that their property is safe, we will do the work – the work to hold them accountable, work with you to ensure that your injuries are fully accounted for and work to get you the medical and financial support that you need to recover.
Premises Liability Cases Come In Many Forms
There are a wide variety of ways that a property can present a hazard to those passing through it. These dangers can include:
- Hazardous conditions like slippery floors or uneven sidewalks that can cause falls, trips or stumbles
- Dogs that are not fenced or under control
- Poor lighting
- Unfenced swimming pools or pools that are not properly lifeguarded or maintained
- Poorly maintained security precautions like video cameras in parking lots or locks on entrances
- Building code violations
- Merchandise, work tools or other heavy objects that could fall from a height
One of the primary factors of whether or not property owners could be held liable for accidents on their property is whether they could have foreseen the dangerous condition that caused the injury. If they have not taken reasonable precautions to keep their property safe, you might be eligible for compensation.
