When we are out and about alone or with friends and family members, completing errands, having lunch, shopping at a grocery store or retail store, we take for granted that safety precautions are in place. We assume that the property owners of the facilities to which we venture have not been negligent when it comes to clearing ice and providing sufficient lighting and security.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case. There may be a neglected repair that causes injuries or a variety of other situations. If a restaurant chain has icy sidewalks and a customer sustains serious injuries from a slip-and-fall accident, the negligent property owner may be deemed responsible. You could be entitled to compensation. A wet floor, inadequate lighting or security, and other hazardous conditions could create a potentially dangerous property condition.
Victims may have a premises liability case against the owner of the dangerous property. The legal team at Colley Shroyer & Abraham works with individuals and their loved ones after they have suffered significant injuries across Ohio, due to the negligence of others.
It is important to seek the assistance of a lawyer who can help you when you fall victim to dangerous property in order to try to obtain money that could cover medical expenses and compensation for pain and suffering.
Our experience with premises liability cases include slip-and-fall injuries and accidents, attacks from animals on residential or commercial properties, as well as problematic areas on walkways, sidewalks, stairways and handrails, and in parking lots. Conditions may include negligent or inadequate security or lighting and other safety measures.
