What Our Lawyers Can Do for You After Your Slip and Fall in Marysville, OH
If you choose to work with our team, we can bring a claim or lawsuit against the property owner responsible for your injury.
Completing a successful injury case involves many steps, and we can take care of all of them for you. Our attorneys will:
Assess Your Damages
A slip and fall commonly results in serious injury. We’ll get to know your story and work to understand all the ways the accident is affecting your life.
We want to help you make a recovery for all damages available in your case, including:
- Medical bills: This can include your past, present, and future costs to heal from the slip and fall injury. Whether you broke a hip and require surgery or broke a wrist and require rehabilitation, we can seek compensation for all your injury-related expenses.
- Income losses: You could be out of work for some time after your injury. We will help you recover your losses from missed paychecks, missed tips or bonuses, a reduced ability to earn income over the long term, and other career-related damages.
- Compensation for your life challenges: The injury can affect much more than your finances. Every part of your life could be impacted, from your relationships to your daily routine. We can seek damages for your pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and more.
Prove Liability for Your Fall and Injury
One of the most complicated aspects of a slip and fall case is proving that someone else was liable for your fall accident and injury. After all, it may be clear that you were hurt—but it could take strong evidence to prove that someone else was negligent.
We will gather evidence to show that the liable party didn’t address hazardous conditions on their property. Examples of hazardous conditions include:
- Spills at a restaurant that remain on the floor too long
- Leaking coolers that leave grocery store floors slick
- Sidewalks outside of businesses that are left icy
We can use photos of the accident scene, witness statements, records of past violations, security camera footage, and other evidence to make your case.
Handle Your Insurance Claim or Lawsuit in Marysville, OH
Our slip and fall attorneys will then proceed to file an insurance claim or a civil lawsuit. Depending on the route that best serves your case, we are prepared to pursue either option.
Often, if we begin the process of filing a lawsuit, we may still be able to negotiate an out-of-court settlement. The liable party may not wish to continue with the costs of a trial.
Our team has trial experience and is ready to litigate on your behalf if necessary to seek your fair compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions in Ohio Slip and Fall Cases
We receive many questions about slip and fall cases, and we are happy to answer them all. Here are some answers to common questions from our potential clients:
How Do I Know if I Have a Valid Slip and Fall Case?
It can be hard to determine this on your own, so the short answer is: ask our team. We can tell you after a free case review or an initial investigation of your case.
However, what we’ll be looking for is evidence that someone else can be held legally responsible for your injury. That means they were somehow careless or reckless in causing the conditions of your fall.
How Much Is My Settlement or Lawsuit Worth?
It’s hard to know exactly what your case is worth before we research the facts of your case. Still, we can give you an early sense of your case’s possible value by looking at how serious your injuries are, how much your medical care costs, and who is liable for your losses.
While people with serious injuries and major medical bills can often seek a higher settlement or award amount, don’t think that only people with catastrophic injuries can get compensation.
Even if you had more moderate injuries, you could be surprised by how much your case could be worth.
Who Is Responsible for My Slip and Fall?
Our attorneys can determine who was responsible, and we may determine that more than one party is liable. We could bring a case against:
- A property owner
- A business owner
- An individual or homeowner
- A government entity
- A construction company
How Long Will It Take to Reach a Settlement?
It could take months to seek the compensation you deserve if the liable party refuses to offer a fair settlement. However, know that our team will keep you updated throughout your case so you know what’s happening.
We will make every effort to avoid unnecessary delays during the claims or lawsuit process.
Should I Hire a Lawyer to Handle My Case?
There are many reasons why you may want to hire a lawyer. You may:
- Be facing major injuries and want to ensure the best chance of a recovery
- Want to avoid dealing with insurance companies
- Be unable to handle the demands of an injury case
- Want help from a team that will know and protect your rights
Ultimately, our job is to help you not only seek a settlement or award but to seek the best amount of compensation possible. That means that we will help you seek compensation you may not know you qualify for, such as pain and suffering damages, reduced earning capacity, and more.
