Ohio landlords can be sued for injuries at apartment complexes

One of the first things that many prospective tenants do when they're trying to find an ideal apartment to move into is to visit the property and look around. Many renters do this to make sure that a specific unit meets their needs, to discuss pricing and learn more about the amenities that the complex offers. Other tenants do so to get a feel for how well-maintained the premises are and to see if it seems safe. All landlords are obligated to protect your safety. If they fail to do so, then they can be sued.

While a dog is a fine pet and most people care for them properly and make sure they are safe around people, the fact remains that a dog is an animal and could be set off by even the slightest perceived provocation.

Those who have been attacked by a dog can face medical expenses and long-term damage. A personal injury legal claim is frequently the only way to receive adequate compensation for all that was lost.
