Slip-and-fall in bar and grill leads to premises liability claim

Owners of restaurants and bars in Ohio must maintain safe and secure premises. Neglecting important safety practices such as cleaning wet spills immediately and also putting out warning signs can lead to slip-and-fall accidents -- often causing severe injuries. A restaurant in another state is facing the consequences of alleged negligence after a patron filed a premises liability lawsuit against the business owner.

Court documents indicate that the plaintiff says she went to the bar and grill for dinner in November 2016. During this visit, the plaintiff contends she went to the restroom. While walking from the table, she allegedly stepped onto a wet area on the floor, which caused her to slip and fall.

The complaint states that she suffered an injured wrist, which led to several surgical procedures. The plaintiff accuses the defendant of negligently failing to inspect the walkways. Furthermore, if, for some reason, a danger could not be remedied immediately, the defendant should have posted a notice to warn patrons of the danger. The plaintiff seeks damage recovery in excess of $50,000 along with legal fees.

Ohio residents who are in similar situations may follow the same route to recover damages after slip-and-fall accidents that were caused by the negligence of restaurant or store owners. Establishing negligence might prove to be challenging, but an experienced premises liability attorney can assist. A lawyer can provide guidance and support throughout the ensuing legal proceedings, which might result in a monetary judgment to cover economic and non-economic losses. Along with medical expenses, documented claims can also include emotional damages like pain and suffering.
