Find out if someone is liable for your slip-and-fall accident

James J. Gutbrod, Attorney at Law represents victims of slip-and-fall accidents in Akron, Ohio and the surrounding area. These types of accidents are especially common when they involve:

  • Paved surfaces. Cracks and potholes lead to injuries on sidewalks and parking lots.
  • Stairs and escalators. Damaged and uneven steps can cause individuals to stumble and fall.
  • Slippery surfaces. Ice, spills and oily residue can turn any surface into a safety hazard.

Commercial property owners have a legally enforced responsibility to keep their spaces free from these types of dangers. However, the law states that accidents resulting from natural ice and snow accumulation can't be the basis of a slip-and-fall claim. Because of this, we recommend exercising caution when walking in winter weather.
