Ohio workers are fortunate that the state provides an insurance system that helps their employers cover workplace injuries and get employees back to work. Employers and employees can, and should, take precautions at work to reduce or limit the risk of accidents, but workplace accidents and injuries are bound to happen. Certain work environments are inherently dangerous and that is why workers' compensation coverage is so critical. It is also why the state takes workers' compensation coverage so seriously.

When it comes to premises and property liability, there are a few important key points. Property owners in Ohio are responsible for repairing known dangerous or unsafe conditions.

Property owners are also responsible for reasonable inspection as well as maintenance.
