Dangerous Driveways & Sidewalks

Driveway and Sidewalk Falls

Poorly maintained driveways, sidewalks, and parking lots account for a significant portion of trip and fall injuries.  Concealed cracks, elevations, and holes in outdoor surfaces lead to devastating falls, broken bones, and in some cases even deadly injuries.

Under Ohio law, if you are injured by a dangerous defect in a driveway, sidewalk, or parking lot, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. As one of the areas leading premises liability law firms, Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA can help you pursue legal action against those responsible, including negligent businesses, landlords, homeowners, and organizations.

Hidden Defects Cause Lasting Injuries

Defects in driveways, sidewalks, and parking lots may be hidden by a variety of factors under the property owner’s control, including:

  • Insufficient lighting
  • Movable property placed in a way that conceals defects
  • Unmaintained refuse

When defects in outdoor walking or parking areas are hidden or obscured, those defects can cause injuries to those who encounter them.  Falls sustained because of driveway, sidewalk, and parking lot defects can result in broken bones, bruises and lacerations, concussions and traumatic brain injury, and many additional damages.

The premises liability lawyers of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA have dedicated themselves to helping injured Ohioans successfully pursue their trip and fall claims against negligent property owners.  When another party is at fault for your injuries, we believe that they should be held accountable for the full measure of your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and all other appropriate relief.

If you or a family member suffered serious injury or loss of life because of a dangerous defect on a driveway, sidewalk, or parking lot, contact our premises liability lawyers now for your free consultation.
