TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Toledo attorneys say they
have seen an increase in calls about slip and fall lawsuits. Despite the cold
temperatures, snow and ice this winter, attorneys say very few have a case.
"Ohio has a
long-standing rule that they're not going to require property owners to clear
ice and snow caused by mother nature...that is ice, snow that has just come
down, or refrozen ice - precipitation that refreezes overnight. That's not
going to present a cause of action against the landowner," said Toledo
Attorney Michael Bruno.
Bruno says his law firm, the
Charles Boyk Law Offices, has received calls on a daily basis over the past
month inquiring about slip and fall suits.
There is one type of ice
that could leave the homeowner liable though, Bruno says. Ice that is not
caused by Mother Nature could me the person who falls has a case. For example,
if a home or business owner leaves a drainage pipe too close to a sidewalk and
water spilling out freezes, that could mean a legitimate suit.
