Cleveland Premises Liability Attorney
What is Premises Liability?
In the state of Ohio, premises liability determines when property owners or tenants are responsible for the injuries suffered on their property
If you were seriously injured on someone else's property, discuss your circumstances with an experienced Cleveland premises liability lawyer at Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP. We provide a no-cost, confidential consultation to assess your case. We can explain how a judge and jury will likely view your circumstances, and what that means when we negotiate a settlement. Insurance defense lawyers know that winning a premises liability claim in today's legal environment takes skill and determination—and they know that's exactly what we bring to each and every case we pursue.
Types of Premises Liability Claims
- Retail store accidents - There are many potential hidden dangers in retail stores, including falling items, wet floors, holes in the floor, and unnecessarily hot or sharp objects.
- Injuries to children - This includes park and playground accidents and injuries caused by lead paint in apartments.
- Nursing home negligence cases
- Injuries from assault, inadequate security - A few security measures which a property owner may have to provide are adequate lighting, warning signs, and even security guards in some circumstances. If these are missing, it may leave visitors at risk of being a victim of mugging, rape, or another violent crime.
- Residential and public swimming pool accidents - Pools should be secured and/or supervised.
- Workplace and construction site accidents - You are owed safety in your workplace. Construction and other high-risk jobs require extra precaution.
- Parking lot mishaps - Parking lots come with many potential serious incidents if not properly maintained, such as slip or trip and falls, criminal acts, and car/pedestrian accidents.
Finding Out if You Have a Valid Claim
How do you know whether you have a legitimate claim for damages if you are injured in a retail store, mall, bar, or public or private property?
Here are a few questions we can consider and investigate:
- Was the property owner aware of the potential hazard, but failed to do anything about it?
- Was the building or parking area inherently dangerous from the moment it was constructed, yet the property owner failed to make upgrades or secure the public from danger?
Sometimes a property owner fails to maintain adequate security, exposing you or loved ones to dangerous people or conditions. Because we are selective in the slip-and-fall injury cases we file, insurance companies know that every case we bring has merit and the evidence will be clearly in our client’s favor. Preparing every case to win in court translates into more serious proposals for full and fair settlements during negotiations. Our legal team has an excellent record of significant settlements and jury awards on behalf of our clients.
