Slip/Trip and fall cases in Ohio are among some of the more difficult personal injury cases to pursue. Not only is the law more protective and favorable to businesses than Ohio consumers, but often times there is a lack of evidence necessary to prove the claim.
In a slip/trip and fall case, as with any personal injury case, the injured party has the burden of proving that the property owner or occupier owed them a duty, breached that duty, and caused them injuries. The owner does not have to prove anything. Unfortunately, most injured victims fail to obtain the necessary evidence and information to prove their claim, and by the time they decide to retain a lawyer, the evidence is gone forever.
Below is a short list of what you can do to help preserve this evidence should you need to pursue a claim or file a lawsuit against the property owner or business owner. Though this list is not necessarily exhaustive of everything that is needed, it will certainly put you in a better position to prove your claim if you have to do so.
