Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Accidents Caused by Negligent Property Owners

A slip-and-fall accident is often just that — an accident. At other times, however, when a property owner fails to keep the property safe, a slip- and-fall "accident" is the result of negligence.

Slip-and-fall accident cases are difficult to prove. All of us have fallen at some time, and we know that it was an accident. Juries need to be absolutely certain that the slip and fall was truly the result of negligence.

At the Rittgers & Rittgers law firm, our personal injury lawyers have the experience to investigate premises liability accidents to determine how they happened and whether negligence was involved. From offices in Lebanon, West Chester and downtown Cincinnati, we serve clients throughout southwest Ohio.

In one case, for example, a parking block that was used to mark a parking space came loose and swung over a sidewalk. Our client tripped over the block that should not have been there, fell, and was seriously injured. Our personal injury attorneys proved that the parking block had been loose for a long time and that, rather than fix it, the property owner just shoved it back in place.

Dangerous premises can cause serious injuries and wrongful death.

A leaky refrigeration unit can cause a slippery, dangerous floor. Snow and ice that are not removed promptly after a storm is over can place passersby in grave danger from slippery ice. Badly stacked merchandise can fall and injure unsuspecting customers. Debris left on a badly lighted walkway can cause injury.
