During the summer months, many Frankfort area residents visit pools. They are a refreshing way to spend hot Kentucky days. But, if a pool accident occurs at a public pool, who is liable for the accident?
Many Kentucky residents enjoy going to amusement parks. There are some great amusement parks within driving distance that we all enjoy including Kentucky Kingdom, Holiday World and King's Island. There are also many other fun amusement parks in the United States like Disney World. Even though these amusement parks have safety measures in place to ensure their guests remain safe, accident can still occur.
When a Kentucky resident visits his local grocery store, shopping mall or other venue, he doesn't expect the visit to end with an injury. Most places understand the importance of safety for their visitors, but occasionally negligence occurs where someone is hurt because of a slip and fall accident.
For a lot of people, the simple fact of living in an apartment building should not be the reason why they can't own a dog. In fact, many small breeds are well suited for apartment living and not only offer companionship and entertainment, but can also be trained as helper dogs for those with disabilities or special needs.
Kentucky is known for having some amazing weather. They are also known for having severe ice situations a few times each winter. Although Kentucky may not always get a lot of snow, they do receive quite a bit of ice. Ice can be dangerous for pedestrians and it is important for property owners to keep their outside area safe.
When Frankfort residents are out and about they expect they will remain safe. Most of the time, the places we enjoy are safe and well-maintained. But, occasionally a serious accident occurs through no fault of our own. Slip and fall accidents are one form of premises liability that can have serious consequences for those who are injured.
Proving fault in a slip and fall injury can be difficult. After all, thousands of such injuries occur each year—some inconsequential, and some deadly. Accidents can occur on almost any type of terrain that has become unsafe: Stairs, sidewalks, yards, or even regular floors. Even though accidents can occur so easily, determining whether the property owner is at fault can be very hard.
