General Guidelines for Slip & Fall Accident Claims
In the state of Ohio, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury/slip and fall claim. This two-year statute of limitations applies to any personal property that was damaged in your slip and fall accident, as well as your injury.
What If I’m Partially At-Fault for My Accident?
If you were acting carelessly when your accident occurred, you may still be able to recover some compensation for your injuries. However, you have to establish that the physical circumstances still significantly contributed to your accident.
Ohio’s comparative negligence laws determine the percentage of the accident you are responsible for and the percentage the other party is responsible for. For example, if the jury/judge finds you are 25% responsible for your slip and fall accident, your compensation will be reduced by that 25%.
