Daycare Injury Lawsuits
The purpose of a daycare center is to provide a safe environment for young children. When daycare centers fail to provide a safe standard of care and a child is injured, a personal injury and premises liability lawsuit can be filed on behalf of the injured plaintiff.
Daycare lawsuits may involve unsafe playground equipment, food poisoning, entrapment and laceration hazards, drowning hazards, burn injuries, and a general lack of supervision.
Swimming Pool Accidents
Swimming pools at public parks, private homes or apartment complexes can all be dangerous areas for children. Drowning incidents can almost always be prevented, and other injuries can be curbed by general pool safety measures.
Swimming pool accidents are very common, and homeowners and pool management can be held responsible when a pool accident occurs.
Animal Attack Lawsuits
Dangerous dogs and other animals must be controlled by their owners, or they may be held liable for injuries that result. Dog bite lawsuits can award plaintiffs for the physical and emotional scarring that results.
In Ohio, the courts take very seriously a dog attack injury that can be prevented. Animal owners have a duty to prevent all violent animal attacks, and if a child or adult is injured by a dog or other dangerous animal, compensation may be available.
School Toxic Exposure
Schools ought to be one of the safer areas for children to spend their time. However, when schools are filled with toxic materials like asbestos, lead paint, and other toxins, students and teachers are put at serious health risk.
Due to serious safety concerns in recent years, students and school staff have had to resort to legal action in order to force the hand of municipalities and companies to provide a safe school and work environment.
Landlord Tenant Lawsuits
Landlords have a duty to provide a safe living environment, not only in apartment units but also in common areas, including outside areas. In recent years landlords have been named as defendants for failing to maintain sidewalks, elevators, common grills, playgrounds, smoke and fire alarms and other basic facility necessities.
Landlords must prevent accidents for both tenants and visitors, and should an injury occur on their premises, a potential premises liability and landlord negligence claim can be filed.
