Ohio Slip and Fall Attorneys
We all do it. We go out to a nice restaurant with our families to enjoy a nice meal. However, a quick stroll to the bathroom to freshen up should not result in a life changing event. When a careless employee or restaurant owner fails to clean up a dish that was spilled on the ground, causing you to fall, you can be at risk of suffering serious injuries with their accompanying complications. Slip and falls often leave people suffering back, head, neck, arm, and leg injuries, which can be devastating.
If you suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident and you believe a business or property owner was to blame, you should have an Ohio slip and fall lawyer evaluate your rights. Our legal team has experience handling slip and fall injury claims.
How Slip and Fall Claims Arise
In Ohio, property owners are required to keep premises reasonably safe for guests, customers, and other visitors. Common causes of slip-and-falls include failure to repair potholes in parking lots, failure to remove snow and ice, failure to clean up spills, failure to warn of known hazards, and failure to comply with certain administrative codes. At Karp Steiger, our team of experienced attorneys can assist victims who were injured in a slip-and-fall.
Sometimes slip and falls are due to dangerous conditions. Unjustifiable dangerous conditions exist all over the place despite property owners having a legal duty to promptly correct dangerous conditions that could lead to injury or death. Common causes of injuries caused by dangerous conditions include wet floors, icy steps, hallway debris, uneven stairs, lack of handrails, poor lighting, negligent security practices, and manmade other hazards.
These dangerous conditions can lead to injuries such as broken and fractured bones, brain injuries, sprains, strains, muscle tears, and even death. Those suffering from these injuries often find themselves with enormous amounts of debt as victims are routinely forced to seek emergency medical attention, undergo diagnostic imaging testing and surgery, and partake in extensive therapy sessions.
Speak with an Ohio Slip and Fall Lawyer
If you or a loved one have suffered injury or wrongful death from dangerous conditions, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney who can file suit within the applicable statute of limitations. In Ohio, the statute of limitations for wrongful death is two years from the date of death. However, a shorter statute of limitations may apply depending on the nature of your case.
Our team will handle all aspects of your slip-and-fall case. We will determine the cause of the fall, if issues had been previously reported, who is to blame for the fall, if the hazard was expected, and how the hazard developed. By investigating these aspects of slip-and-fall cases, our team can strategically advance your slip-and-fall case and hold the responsible party accountable.
