Store owners and other commercial property owners enjoy a lot of protections under Ohio law. They have no duty to protect their customers from dangerous conditions which the customer knew about or should have known about. And even when the customer is not aware of the dangerous condition, the store owner has no duty to protect or warn their customers about a dangerous condition unless the store knew about it or should have known about it.

But, when a store creates a dangerous condition, such as mopping a floor without placing a wet floor warning sign, they may be responsible for any injuries caused by the dangerous condition.
