Premises Liability Archives

What are the bases of liability for defective products in Ohio?

Most people understand the general concept of products liability, to the extent that if a product is unreasonably dangerous then its maker, and possibly others involved in placing it into commerce in Ohio, can be held financially accountable for any injury, death or property damage that results from a person using the product in a foreseeable manner.

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.

How is premises liability different for children?

In many areas of the law, exceptions or special accommodations are made for children.

There’s more to premises liability than slip and fall

When the average person hears the term “premises liability” his or her mind generally pictures someone slipping on a wet surface and falling down, or a person tripping down some steps because the stairs were not kept in good condition. But the law of premises liability also involves other injury-causing events that the ordinary person may not customarily associate with the common idea of what this area of law includes.
