Butler County Premises Liability Attorney | Property Negligence Lawyer

Butler County Premises Liability Attorney

You probably do not stay at home all the time. Most people, at some point during the week, head out to the store, bank, work, or some other place. When any of us goes somewhere, we expect that we will be safe. Most of the time, this is the case. Property owners do what they should keep patrons protected.

Unfortunately, there are times when property owners and the people who work for them are not diligent in their duties and it causes people to get hurt. At SMT Legal, we are here to help when you need a skilled premises liability lawyer. Our knowledgeable and experienced team will work diligently to secure the compensation you deserve.

We need to look at the totality of what the word “premises” means in these cases.

The Neglected Parking Lot

We say neglected because that is often the last place to get any maintenance. Often, the stores that use a parking lot have no ownership or maintenance requirements for them. This means that you will find many parking lots with broken and uneven pavement, broken curbs, poor lighting, and more. A slip and fall incident in a parking lot can lead to serious injuries, especially for elderly patrons.

Stores And Other Buildings

When you go inside an establishment, whether it is a store, office building, government office, or someplace else, you expect safety. The store employees should have strict safety standards in place when it comes to cleaning and maintaining the building. This includes cleaning spills, as slip and fall injuries are the most common premises liability cases. It also means that other aspects of the store should be repaired and maintained regularly. This includes:

  • Store shelving
  • Store displays
  • Benches
  • Railings
  • Floors

Restaurant Dangers

In a restaurant, workers need to be extra vigilant about spills and watch out for patron safety. They also need to ensure that no chipped or broken glasses or plates are used. The people responsible for food preparation need to be vigilant about food storage and cooking temperatures. If they are not, they can cause their patrons to become seriously ill.

A Note On Pools

Pool owners, whether private or commercial, need to ensure that all safety measures are taken:

  • Lifeguards when necessary
  • Proper warning signs
  • Safety measures to protect children
  • Proper chemical use
