Cleveland Property Owners Have a Duty to Respond to Dangerous Conditions
When a person or company owns a home, business, or residence, that property owner has a responsibility to maintain safe premises. If any dangerous conditions arise on the land, the owner has to respond to the hazard as soon as possible and warn others of the potential dangers.
Unfortunately, not all property owners keep their premises in safe conditions, putting visitors, residents, or patrons at risk of injury. At Bashein & Bashein, we represent Cleveland residents who are injured due to dangerous conditions on someone else’s property.
We can help you hold property owners accountable for unsafe conditions, such as:
- Poorly maintained properties
- Cracked or uneven pavement or floors
- Degrading porches, stairs, and other structures
- Spilled drinks, food items, and other substances
- Broken doors or windows
- Defective elevators or escalators
- Poor lighting and broken lights
- Missing or loose handrails
Holding Property Owners Accountable For Negligent Security Injuries In Cleveland
Our firm has always believed that commercial property owners need to take reasonable care to protect their customers from criminal activity. Whether negligent parking lot security is at issue, a store is unsafe or other property owners have failed to maintain proper security with injuries as a result, they need to be held accountable. Whether through settlements or litigation, our attorneys will work hard to make sure you get the full compensation you deserve.
To prevail in a negligent security case, it has to be proven that the surrounding area had an overwhelming likelihood of criminal activity and that property owners failed to respond properly to ensure safety.
Pursuing Compensation For Unsafe Premises
Property owners are also responsible for making sure that people are protected from hazards on their land. Many children needlessly drown each year in swimming pool accidents because a property owner has failed to take adequate steps to block swimming pool access or because the children were not properly supervised.
If you or a loved one was injured on someone’s property, our premises liability lawyers will thoroughly investigate your claim to determine if negligence was involved. If a property owner failed to take measures to prevent a foreseeable accident, we will help you pursue the maximum possible compensation for your claim.
By filing a premises liability claim, you can recover compensation to pay for the damages that you experienced as a result of the property owner’s negligence. Generally, you can secure a settlement for any financial losses that you suffered, as well as your physical and emotional pain and suffering.
Below are a few examples of damages that you can recover in your settlement:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages and benefits
- Loss of future earning potential
- Property damage
- Disability accommodations
- Chronic pain
- Permanent disability
- Emotional distress
- Depression and anxiety
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
