Causes of a Slick Floor
Property owners have an obligation to ensure the safety of others who use their establishments. This obligation includes cleaning up any materials that can create wet and slippery floors. Many substances may cause floors to become dangerously slick. At Hach & Rose, LLP, our premises liability attorneys have experience in handling cases that involve the following:
- Water leaking from air conditioners, pipes, or ceilings
- Snow, ice, or rainwater tracked in from outside
- Grease or oil tracked in from outside
- Urine from a child, animal, or adult
- Liquid from spilled or leaking merchandise in a store
- Discarded food items on the floor
- Spilled drinks
- Floor polish
Failure to adequately treat a wet floor that ends up causing a slip and fall injury may give rise to a premises liability suit against the property owner. The premises liability attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP have the knowledge and experience to help build your claim and win the financial compensation you deserve.
Injuries from Falls on a Slick Floor
Slippery floors are exceptionally hazardous. A person may suffer serious or even life-threatening injuries from falls caused by a slick floor.
