What is Premises Liability Law in Dublin? 

PREMISES LIABILITY

Premises liability law is personal injury law that allows a party to seek financial compensation from a property owner who fails to maintain their premises reasonably and safely. It is essential to know that some states, including Ohio, distinguish between lawfully on the property and trespassing people. In addition, within the category of people who are lawfully on the premises, business owners owe a higher duty of care to customers than the duty that private property owners owe to private guests who are invited onto the premises.

In general, Ohio premises liability law has three categories of people who may be injured on another party’s premises:

  • Invitee: A person lawfully on the property for business purposes or the potential benefit of the property owner.
  • Licensee: A person lawfully on the property for personal reasons or their benefit (such as a person invited to the private residence of a neighbor).
  • Trespasser: A person not on the property lawfully and is only owed a limited duty of care.

Property owners, operators, or managers in Dublin have a duty to maintain the property in a reasonably safe manner for invitees and licensees. Still, invitees are owed a more significant duty of care. Property owners do not owe the same duty of care to trespassers and can only be liable for willfully or wantonly causing harm to a trespasser.

There is an exception for trespassers who are children who enter the property due to an attractive nuisance.

An attractive nuisance is a legal doctrine that holds property owners responsible for injuries to children who are attracted to dangerous conditions or objects on the property and unaware of the associated dangers.

Common examples of attractive nuisances include:

  • Swimming Pools
  • Trampolines
  • Playground Equipment
  • Construction Sites
  • Abandoned Vehicles
  • Unsecured Machinery
  • Ponds or Wells
  • Animals
  • Open Excavations/Pits
  • Old Appliances or Equipment

If you have been injured on public or private property, or your child was hurt or lost their life because of an attractive nuisance that should have been adequately secured, contact our skilled premises liability attorneys in Dublin today to learn how we can help with your claim.

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON TYPES OF PREMISES LIABILITY CASES IN OHIO?

There are many different types of premises liability lawsuits that may be filed in Dublin.

When negligence is a factor on private or public property, many types of premises liability accident and injury circumstances follow.

The most common types of premises liability claims in Ohio include, but are not limited to:

  • Slip and Fall Accidents

These occur when someone slips, trips, or falls on a property due to hazardous conditions like wet floors, uneven surfaces, ice or snow accumulation, or inadequate warning signs.

  • Trip and Fall Accidents

Similar to slip-and-fall accidents, trip-and-fall incidents involve tripping over obstacles like uneven sidewalks, loose carpeting, or debris left in walkways.

  • Inadequate Maintenance

Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises. Failure to do so can lead to accidents caused by broken handrails, faulty stairs, or poorly maintained facilities.

  • Negligent Security

Property owners may be liable if inadequate security measures contribute to criminal acts, such as assaults or robberies, on their premises. This is especially relevant in apartment complexes, hotels, or other public places.

  • Dog Bites

Property owners can be held responsible for injuries caused by their dogs. This includes bites or other injuries resulting from a dog’s aggressive behavior.

  • Swimming Pool Accidents

Property owners with swimming pools must take measures to ensure the safety of visitors. Accidents may occur due to a lack of proper fencing, supervision, or warning signs.
