Who Is Responsible After A Fall?
If you suffered a fall on property belonging to either an individual or a business, the property owner may be liable if it can be proven that he or she acted negligently in allowing unsafe conditions to persist. In most cases, the property owner’s insurance company is obligated to pay compensation to the injured victim for both medical expenses relating to the accident and lost wages resulting from the injury and recovery period.
If you would like to pursue a claim after falling because of a missing or broken handrail, you only have two years from the date of your injury to do so. Due to Ohio’s statute of limitations on premises liability claims, taking action soon after your accident is essential to the process.
