When Slip and Fall Accidents Occur
Even the best floor safety plans can’t always eliminate the occurrence of a slip and fall accident at work. When the victim gets an injury to the head, back, shoulder, wrist, hip, knee, ankle or worse, they can be looking at years of rehab, enormous doctor bills, and plenty of pain and suffering. When victims believe that the accident was caused by the negligence of the business owner and other company staffers, like maintenance people, they may file a liability lawsuit to recoup some costs.
The business owner is responsible for the health and safety of customers and employees at the workplace, and when they neglect floor safety, it can lead to a slip and fall accident. Some of the most common things that contribute to a slip and fall accident are not cleaning up spills in a timely manner, neglecting maintenance, improperly cleaning the flooring and leaving in flooring with too much wear and tear without replacing it.
Legal teams for victims of a slip and fall accident are trying to show the court that negligence was involved in the flooring and that the business owner knew about the potential hazard but did not take action.
