While I was shopping, I slipped and fell on a wet floor. Is the store liable?
This is considered a premises liability claim, and to be satisfied, it must be proved that the store created the condition or knew it existed but failed to correct it or that the danger existed for along enough time to reasonably expect the store to have become aware of it and corrected it. If the wet floor was caused by tracked in water on a rainy day, Ohio law may excuse the business owner for any responsibility because this is a danger that a person should guard against based on all of the prevailing conditions.
