Ohio law requires property owners to make their clients, guests, and patrons safe from dangerous conditions on their property that they know about or should know about with reasonable inspection, unless such conditions are “open and obvious.” A landowner must not create or allow to continue any condition that creates an unreasonable risk of harm to frequenters on the property.
Oliver Law Office has represented those who have been injured on another’s premises in such instances as improper removal of snow and ice in parking lots and stairs, steps or holes that are difficult to see or where there is improper lighting, and stairs without proper handrails or rise and fall heights causing guests to trip and fall with no notice in advance of the condition.
Each case must be reviewed on its own merit. If you have been injured on the property of another, you should document the injury, keep the shoes you were wearing, take pictures of the area where you fell or send someone else to do it quickly, and file an incident report, if possible.
