Cleveland Premises Liability Attorneys

Helping Clients in Elyria, Cleveland and Across the State

Every property owner has a duty to maintain reasonably safe grounds. Grounds should be regularly inspected and maintained, and if an issue does arise, it should be handled as quickly as possible. If it cannot be fixed immediately, a warning sign should be placed in the location to warn others. When property owners fail to uphold their duty to visitors, customers, and guests, this can have disastrous results. Catastrophic injuries and even death can result from a hazardous condition on a property.

Key Elements in a Premises Liability Claim

There are several key elements to consider in an Ohio premises liability claim. These include:

  • Entrant status, which relates to the reason the victim was on the property in the first place. A trespasser is less likely to be owed a duty of care by the property owner, although there are some rare exceptions.
  • The type of hazard that led to the victim’s injuries, and whether the property owner knew of it or should have reasonably known of its existence.
  • Whether the property owner took any measures to warn visitors of the hazard, such as a warning sign.
  • Whether the victim was exercising reasonable care. A situation where the victim was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or was acting carelessly, may limit the property owner’s liability.
