    In Ohio, the injured party has to prove what the cause was. Go back and get pictures, see if there are any witnesses. Most companies fight these cases since the law is so favorable to them. If your injuries are serious enough, talk to a lawyer.

  • Liability

    While waiting between games at the city baseball complex my son and a friend went onto an empty field to play catch. An errant throw broke a window on the complex concession stand. Am I liable?

    Mark’s Answer

    Depends. Your description is incomplete. You could turn it over to your homeowners carrier which may cover it. Maybe you should just pay for it and move on.
