What can happen if a slip and fall happens in my business?
Slip and fall Accidents can the bane of local businesses. Certainly if a victim is injured they may try to seek compensation. Consequently government institutions exist to prevent accidents from occurring in the first place. However if a private institution does not follow these regulations they may be forced to close completely. In truth the injured party may feel the need to involve an attorney who mediates slip and fall claims. Personal injury attorneys look at these factors before taking on a case:
- Code Adherence –
Whether or not your flooring was to code. Was a wet floor sign present if the injury was the result of a spill, was the friction of your floor to standard levels, and was safety information visible?
- Insurance –
Whether or not your insurance provider covers slip and fall. Most importantly if your insurance will reimburse the cost of a suit. If your provider decides that you had not taken precautions, they may not cover the fees at all.
- 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.
Summing up these factors, a lawyer can determine the value of a case well before they take the client on. However they are made to account for any actions you have taken to prevent accidents on your property. That is to say 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 work together to prevent a slip on your property in two steps. First we test your floor, then we etch it. For instance with our ‘BOT 3000E’ we will approximate the slip coefficient of friction (how much force it takes to move an object on a flat surface) of your floors, then treat your floors with our 3 step ‘Boost’ agents. It simply takes a clean, a seal, and a buffer; and we can extend the lifespan of your floor by three to seven years. In conclusion proof of due-diligence is critical in averting any and all blame away from your company or group in the circumstance of an accident.
