Bowling Green Resident Sues for Injuries Sustained in Slip and Fall Accident

On February 8, 2020, our client sustained injuries after a slip and fall accident on a sidewalk in Bowling Green, Ohio. As she was walking, she stepped on a sheet of black ice, causing her to slip and fall onto her right elbow and shoulder.

The sheet of black ice was formed due to an overfilled and clogged gutter draining onto the pavement and freezing. At the time of the accident, the gutter was under the control of Ace Hardware Corporation and Ace Hardware Main Street. Following the accident, our client was taken to Henry Ford Woodhaven Walk-in Clinic to begin treatment for her serious injuries.

Our client suffered from serious personal injuries due to the defendants’ negligence and recklessness. So, our attorneys are seeking comprehensive compensation on her behalf.

Assessing Our Client’s Injuries and Damages

Ace Hardware had a responsibility to ensure its property was safe, eliminate any hazards, and warn others of potential danger. However, the company failed to repair the gutter, remove the ice from the sidewalk, and warn others of the accumulated black ice. Ace Hardware displayed negligence, as the company should have known the ice was a danger to others.

Due to the inaction of defendant Ace Hardware, our client suffered from severe injuries, lost wages, and other economic losses. She also incurred great pain, suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress. Further, our client believes that these injuries are permanent and will require future medical care, resulting in further economic loss, pain, and suffering. Our team is working tirelessly to hold Ace Hardware accountable for its negligent actions and obtain compensation for our client.
