You Pay No Fees Unless We Win Compensation for You

When many people hear "premises liability," they think of slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall incidents that lead to injury. Under Ohio law a property owner in these scenarios may be held liable if it can be proven that they failed to mitigate and/or warn of a “latent hazard,” i.e. something that is not readily open and obvious, that caused a person to suffer injuries and damages.

While slip/trip and falls are common situations that can give rise to a premises liability case, they are not the only type of injuries that that can occur on someone else's property. Dog bites, swimming pool accidents, elevator malfunctions, and negligent security situations may also provide the basis for a lawsuit for an injured victim to recover.

What To Do In a Premises Liability Scenario

  • Report the incident to the property owner or manager. Make sure that you request an incident report or police report, if one is available
  • Get medical attention. Be sure that you comply with your doctor's directions and do not miss appointments
  • If possible, take pictures of the scene and the surrounding areas. If you slipped on a puddle or tripped over debris, documentation of the conditions at the time of the incident can be of critical importance during a case.
  • Get witness information, including their names, phone numbers, email addresses, or other contact information.
  • Request any security camera footage of the accident if available.
