A large majority of slip and fall cases are the result of individuals losing their footing on ice or snow. In the State of Ohio, a property owner cannot be held liable for injuries that were the result of the natural accumulation of ice or snow. However, if the property owner created a hazard either intentionally or negligently, then you may be able to recover for your injuries. For example, a property owner has a broken downspout that directs water onto a sidewalk, which then freezes. If an individual slips on that ice and is injured, the property owner may be held responsible for the injuries that occurred as a result of the unnatural accumulation of ice.
