What can happen if a slip and fall happens in my business?
Slip and fall Accidents can be fatal to local businesses. Truthfully if the injury is dire enough the company can be held liable in a court of law. Luckily government institutions work to help businesses prevent accidents. However if a private institution ignores regulations they may be shutdown. Truthfully a victim may even turn to an attorney who specializes in slip and fall accidents. You see these personal injury attorneys will look at these factors before taking on a case:
- Code adherence –
Whether or not your flooring was to code. If the accident was the result of a liquid spill was a wet floor sign visible? was the friction of your floor was within safe levels? did you have safety material visible?
- Insurance –
Whether or not your company or franchise’s insurance covers slip and fall. More so if your insurance company alone will cover the cost of a suit. If the insurance decides that you had not taken the proper safety measures your business may be liable.
- Assets and Income –
The value of your company, as in: the value of your proprietary equipment, how much yearly income you receive, or how many employees you have.
With these factors, a lawyer can price a case well before they take the client on. However they are forced to factor in any measures you have taken to combat injuries from occurring on your property. The more steps you take to defend against an injury, the less likely that you will be seen at fault.
How we can help.
We can help prevent a slip in two steps. First we test your floor, then we etch it. With our ‘BOT 3000E’ we find the slip coefficient of friction (how much force it takes to move an object on a flat surface) of your floors. Then process your floors with our 3 step ‘Boost’ chemicals. All it takes is a clean, a seal, and a buffer, and we can extend your floor’s lifespan for three to seven years. Proof of due-diligence is critical in averting any and all blame away from your company or group in the circumstance of an accident. Protect yourself today, schedule a consultation at 480-454-8644.
