If you have been hurt on another party’s premises, whether a business or private residence, do not assume the company or individual will accept responsibility for the hazard that caused your injuries and agree to pay your damages. Contact our Columbus premises liability attorneys today to learn more about your legal rights and options to file a claim so you are not left paying for the associated expenses out of pocket.  

What are the Most Common Types of Ohio Premises Liability Claims?

Although not an exhaustive list, if you have been involved in any premises liability accident in Ohio, you may suffer serious injuries that could significantly impact your life for years to come.

Where Do Premises Liability Accidents Happen in Ohio?

Ohio property owners are expected to identify and address potential hazards. This includes maintaining walkways, fixing defects, and providing adequate warnings about known dangers.
When negligence is a factor, and property owners do not uphold their duty of care, there is no limit to the places Ohio premises liability accidents can occur, including:
Property owners may be liable if they were aware of a hazardous condition or should have been aware of it and failed to take reasonable steps to address it. It is not uncommon for property owners to argue that the injured party was trespassing, that the dangerous condition was open and obvious, or that the property owner took reasonable steps to address the hazard.
We can help prove otherwise so you can pursue the compensation you deserve because of the property owner’s negligence. Contact our Columbus premises liability attorneys today for help.
