Legal Help for the Injured

Youngstown Premises Liability Claims

Property owners are responsible for maintaining their land and buildings for clients, residents, customers, or others authorized to be there. When property owners fail to fulfill their obligation, visitors run the risk of sustaining serious injuries.

Slip and fall accidents, defective sidewalks, poor construction, unkept parking lots, neglected staircases, and aggressive pets are all examples of property hazards and potential premises liability accidents. And while the circumstances of your situation will be unique, if you are hurt because a business or property wasn’t kept safe, you may be eligible for compensation for your losses.

Property Accidents & Falls

Accidents at properties, like falls in the grocery store, are a common occurrence. A study by the US Department of Justice found premises liability cases were one of the most frequent types of personal injury cases in the US.

Premises Liability Accidents: Examples

  • Slip-and-fall accidents, such as on wet/slippery parking lots, walkways, sidewalks, supermarket floors, etc.
  • Trip-and-fall accidents resulting from cracked or corrupted sidewalks, loose extension cords or cables, torn carpet or messy rugs, and other walking hazards.
  • Falls are often related to stairs, loose or missing railings, and construction site hazards.
  • Swimming pool accidents

What to Do After a Slip and Fall?

A slip and fall is unexpected. Many people don’t know what steps to take. If you believe another party was responsible for your accident and need compensation to recover, our attorneys recommend that you:

  • Get medical care as soon as possible and follow your physicians’ instructions.
  • Document the name and location of the property.
  • Obtain the names of the property owners and if relevant, the property managers.
  • Take down the names and contact information of witnesses to your accident.
  • Take photos and video of the scene and your injuries.
  • Save the clothing and footwear that you were wearing at the time.
  • Avoid making any statements to a business or insurance company.
  • Call a local slip and fall lawyer as soon as possible.

Who’s Responsible for a Slip & Fall?

Just because you were injured on someone else’s property does not necessarily mean the property owner was negligent, even if the property was in an unsafe condition. To win a premises liability case, you must show that the property owner knew or should reasonably have known that the premises were unsafe or needed maintenance but failed to address the problem. You also must demonstrate that you were an authorized visitor on the property and not trespassing.

Proving Negligence Caused Your Fall

To successfully file a premises liability, claim or slip and fall lawsuit, you must establish:

  • The property owner owed you a duty of care
  • The property owner was aware or should have been aware of a hazard
  • The property owner failed to remedy or warn about the hazard
  • You were injured due to the hazard
  • No matter how and where you sustained a premise injury, an accident might not be your fault. You may be able to gain compensation even if you were partially to blame. So, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney before making assumptions or statements about your injuries.
