Woman who fell on construction ramp denied recovery

This week the Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal of a woman's premises liability claim after she fell and suffered injury.  The woman, Deborah Becker, claimed she was asked to deliver carpet samples to a home under renovation when she slipped and fell on construction ramp that was slippery with dust.  The court held that the hazard associated with the ramp was "open and obvious" and therefore Ms. Becker could not pursue a claim against the homeowner.
