If you or a loved one was hurt in a slip and fall accident, a Cincinnati slip and fall injury lawyer with Bressman Law can help you seek compensation from the property owner or the responsible party.
We can assist you with an insurance claim or lawsuit to recover damages, including your medical bills, lost wages, and more.
Slip and Falls Can Result in Severe and Costly Injuries
Slip and fall accidents can cause severe injuries, especially for older adults. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about one in four Ohio residents aged 65 and older will fall every year. The CDC also reports that, nationwide, fatal falls in older adults are increasing.
A slip and fall can result in broken bones, hip fractures, and head injuries. Victims may need emergency care, hospitalization, and ongoing therapies to aid in recovery. These expenses can quickly add up. Even with health insurance, you could owe thousands of dollars out of pocket.
It is unfair for you to get stuck with this financial burden if your accident was not your fault. Property owners owe those on their premises a duty of care. So, business owners, homeowners, and landowners must take reasonable measures to ensure their property is safe and hazard-free. If negligent or dangerous property conditions caused your accident, we can help you seek financial awards.

We will fight for:
Economic Damages That Typically Come with a Slip and Fall
These awards include your actual, calculable, accident-related expenses, such as your medical bills, lost wages, and personal property damages.
We will help you figure the value of these expenses and determine how much compensation you require to pay for future medical care, such as follow-up surgeries or physical or cognitive rehabilitation.
If you cannot return to work because of your slip and fall injuries, we can help you seek the loss of your future earning capacity.
Non-Economic Damages for Your Injuries
Also referred to as compensation for pain and suffering, these damages offer monetary awards for the physical pain, mental anguish, and emotional suffering caused by your injuries.
According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2315.18, the state caps non-economic awards at $250,000 or three times the amount of your economic damages, whichever is greater. This figure cannot exceed $350,000 for a single plaintiff or $500,000 for multiple plaintiffs.
If Your Loved One Succumbed to Their Slip and Fall Injuries
If you lost a loved one due to a fatal slip and fall injury, you may have the right to compensation for their wrongful death. A personal representative of your loved one’s estate can seek awards on behalf of surviving family members.
These awards may include compensation for the loss of your loved one’s financial support, household services, and care, companionship, and advice. You can also pursue recovery for their final medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and for your pain and suffering caused by their passing.

We Will Focus on Your Slip and Fall Case; You Focus on Your Health
Our slip and fall injury lawyers will work with the property owner’s insurance provider to secure an advantageous settlement for you. We will take care of every aspect of your insurance claim, from filing paperwork and proving negligence, to handling phone calls, emails, and negotiations. Our goal is to achieve the best financial outcome possible for your case so that you can turn your time, attention, and resources toward healing.
If the insurance company doesn’t offer you a fair settlement, we can take legal action. If your case goes to civil court, you must file your case within the time limit specified by the statute of limitations. According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, in general, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit.
Under Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02, you generally have two years from the time of your loved one’s passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Our attorneys can tell you more about these laws and how they apply to your case.
