What can you do to make your home pool safer?

The warm summer weather in Ohio draws many families to the cooling waters of a swimming pool. Having a pool on your residential property can be fun and convenient. However, it also represents a significant responsibility to take steps to keep everyone safe in the vicinity of your pool. This includes your family, your guests and children in your neighborhood. 

What dangers does the summer heat bring?

Ohio residents like you know that temperatures can climb to excessive heights during the summer months. But did you know that high temperatures can inadvertently increase your chance of tripping or slipping on paved ground? Today, we at Klein & Carney CO., L.P.A., will discuss exactly how summer heat can contribute to injury via slip and fall incidents.

What are qualities that make a good safety sign?

Keeping pedestrians, visitors and workers safe should be one of your top concerns if you own or manage an Ohio property. One of the ways you can carry out this important responsibility is to mark any hazardous or dangerous areas with appropriate safety signage. Putting up safety signs can warn people that the area they are approaching is not safe to enter. To make sure a safety sign is effective, be on the lookout for several important qualities that a good safety sign should possess.

Winter weather can cause slip-and-fall accidents

Winter weather brings with it snowy, icy and foggy conditions, all of which can make sidewalks and walkways slick and dangerous. If you should have an unfortunate accident on a pathway covered with ice and snow, you may be able to collect compensation for your medical expenses and emotional trauma due to the injury. Slip-and-fall accidents are relatively common in Ohio and throughout the United States and tend to increase in intensity during the winter months. Although business owners and property owners are not in control of the weather, they are responsible for keeping their pathways clear of ice and snow in order to avoid these types of accidents.

Applying the attractive nuisance doctrine in Ohio

An old proverb says "it takes a village to raise a child." The same might be said about protecting one, as well. Parents in Cleveland do all that they can to instill sound judgment in their children, yet kids remain curious about the unknown (often to their own peril). Thus, adults are also often tasked with protecting children from themselves. The attractive nuisance doctrine is just one example of this. 

Avoiding the missteps that lead to premises liability

It is an understatement to say that running a business is a big responsibility, and in a 21st century marketplace that spans the globe, that responsibility encompasses more landscape than ever before. But just for a minute, let's talk local and not global. What about traditional mom-and-pop shops that have served Ohio communities for decades? 

How can you keep people on your property safe?

Every Ohio business owner needs to understand premises liability, the responsibility of an organization and its leadership to people who come onto the property. Accidents happen, of course. When winter hits, snow and ice are the norm, creating dangerous sidewalks and entryways. In the summer, heavy rain can have your customers trudging water in with dripping umbrellas and wet shoes. 

Why older people are more likely to fall

As an older person living in Ohio, you may notice that you have become more susceptible to falling down, and you may, too, become more likely to suffer a serious injury after a fall as you grow older. Why? Many older people have certain risk factors that make them more likely to fall, and in many cases, environmental factors also play a role. At Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., we understand that seniors often suffer extremely debilitating injuries following falls, and we have helped many clients who suffered injuries because of others’ negligence seek recourse.
