Slip-and-fall accident allegedly causes injuries at resort

A woman in another state recently claimed that she fell at a resort and suffered injuries. She has thus decided to file a lawsuit against the resort, claiming that the resort was negligent. Any individual in Ohio who suffers injuries in a slip-and-fall accident due to the carelessness of a property owner has the right to seek to hold that property owner accountable through the civil court system.

In the out-of-state case, the woman asserted that she was inside an elevator and stepped in a puddle. She then reportedly lost her balance and ended up falling. The woman claimed that the fall caused her to break her wrist.

The woman claimed that the resort was responsible for her injury because it did not take reasonable steps to make the elevator's dangerous condition safe. The resort also allegedly did not warn elevator users about the condition's existence. As part of her lawsuit, the woman is seeking a jury trial along with monetary relief totaling under $100,000, along with other proper relief.

A slip-and-fall accident caused by a property owner's negligence in Ohio can result in hefty medical bills depending on the nature of the fall. It can also result in the loss of wages if the victim is unable to work temporarily due to his or her injuries. Fortunately, if a premises liability claim filed against the property owner is fought successfully, this may lead to a monetary damage award that may help with addressing hospital bills and other accident-related expenses.s
