Premises Liability

When you suffer an injury on someone else’s property, and that injury is caused by the negligence, action, or inaction of the property owner, you may be entitled to compensation.

Premises liability cases can be difficult, however. That’s why it’s important that you speak to an experience injury attorney as soon as you’re able to. For premises liability in Ohio and Northern Kentucky, contact The Richards Firm today.

When you enter onto someone else’s property, whether it belongs to an organization or an individual, you expect it to be safe and properly maintained. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Premises injuries are very common. A person slips and falls. A railing breaks. A dangerous area isn’t properly marked. Whatever the case, if an injury is the result of the property owner/manager’s negligence, you may have a liability case.

Unfortunately, neither Ohio nor Kentucky law are particularly friendly when it comes to premises liability cases. If a property owner created, knew about, or should have known about a dangerous condition on the property that caused injury or death, there could be grounds to file a claim against the property owner. You will be facing an uphill battle, however, which is why many Ohio accident attorneys simply refuse to investigate these cases. That’s why The Richards Firm is here.

The Richards Firm prides itself on doing the hard work necessary to discover specific circumstances in each case that can help to prove claims and win your case. We can’t undo what’s been done and we can’t guarantee the outcome, but we will do all we can to answer your questions, provide options forward, and help you build the best case possible.

Premises Injuries & Accidents in Ohio & Kentucky

Much like product liability cases, premises liability is often given an unfair reputation. We hear alleged stories of people pretending to slip and fall to get a big settlement, they fail to see obvious signage, or they simply lack common sense. These types of situations are often sensationalized by property owners and their attorneys to downplay the severity of legitimate claims.
Slip and Fall Accidents Cincinnati & Hamilton, Ohio

The underlying cause of premises accidents is almost always related to the owner creating, ignoring, or failing to understand a dangerous situation. These actions (or inactions) can result in serious injuries to those who enter their property. Common types of potential premises liability lawsuits include:

  • Slip and fall
  • Inadequate or negligent security
  • Poor or inefficient maintenance
  • Hazardous or dangerous materials
  • Animal/dog bites
  • Weather-related accumulation
  • Buildings/constructions that don’t follow code
  • Lack of proper signage/warnings

If you have been injured in one of these situations or a similar situation, it’s important that you speak to an attorney as soon as you’re able to.
