Slip And Falls On Ice And Snow
Wintertime in Ohio typically means ice and snow accumulating on privately owned areas that you regularly visit, such as parking lots and walkways. If you fell while trying to walk on an icy surface and were hurt as a result, you are likely dealing with painful injuries. Property owners and their insurance companies retain attorneys to try to avoid liability in premises liability cases. Our attorneys at Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, represent people injured by negligence, not powerful business owners and insurance companies.
A Proud Legacy Of Representing Victims Of Snow And Ice In Ohio And Kentucky
Since 1958, our firm has helped people injured in slip-and-fall accidents caused by a property owner’s failure to keep their premises clear and dry in winter. For three generations, we at Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, have dedicated ourselves to obtaining financial compensation for those whose lives have been affected by an injury that should have been prevented. We are committed to minimizing the financial impact your accident has on you and your household. Our goal is to be your personal injury law firm now and in the future, should you ever need our experienced representation again. We have 13 offices throughout Ohio and northern Kentucky to serve you.
The Legal Duty To Prevent Falls On Ice
Property owners have a legal duty to take reasonable steps to keep their premises safe for visitors who have a right to be there. For example, when it snows, property owners must make sure walkways, doorways and parking facilities are shoveled and salted, and that interior floors are kept clear and dry. At a minimum, they must put out a sign warning visitors of dangerous conditions. If a property owner fails to take any steps to remove ice and snow, or warn visitors and someone hurts themselves as a result, the owner may be totally liable for the victim’s pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
