What can happen if a slip and fall happens in my business?
Slip and fall Accidents can be fatal to local businesses. Certainly if an injury is severe enough a company can be held liable in a court of law. Fortunately 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. Personal injury attorneys will look at these factors before taking on a case:
- Code Adherence –
Whether or not your flooring was to code. Was a wet floor sign visible if the accident was the result of a spill? Was the friction of your floor within safe levels? Did you have safety material visible?
- Insurance –
Whether or not your insurance covers slip and fall. Most importantly if your insurance company will cover the cost of a suit. If your provider decides that you had been at fault, they may not cover any of 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.
Therefore 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. 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 help prevent a slip in two steps. First we test your floor, then we etch it. For instance 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 treat your floors with our 3 step ‘Boost’ chemicals. Above all it simply takes a clean, a seal, and a buffer, and we can extend your floor’s lifespan for 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.
