3 Places Most Likely to Make You Spill

Falling accidents account for nearly one million people taking a trip to the emergency room each year. In fact, over 20% of slip and fall cases make the victim miss a significant amount of work - over a month in some cases. To avoid injury, here are the types of slippery floors and dangerous conditions you need to look out for to prevent an accident.

Kitchen Floors

This is especially common in restaurant kitchens, however, don't count it out in your own home. Laminate flooring and ceramic tiles are easy to clean but can result in a personal injury case if they're wet or uneven. This includes spilled drinks, wet food, and spilled dishwater - all of these are likely to make you slip and fall, either in your own kitchen or at your place of work.

Sidewalks and Parking Lots

These concrete and asphalt slabs are notorious for uneven surfaces, potholes, and raised edges. While they might not be as slippery as a kitchen floor, these surface conditions can make you trip and fall, resulting in bodily injury.

Icy/Wet Surfaces

Most commonly seen in icy conditions, slip and fall injuries can occur as a result of poor weather. Though no one may be at fault for this accident, watching out for ice patches and wet, slick concrete is the best way to make sure you don't take a tumble. If an individual or business does not properly plow, however, they may be liable for your injuries if they are incurred on their property.

Waxed Floors

Everyone loves the look of a freshly waxed floor, but it's important to alert guests when the act has been done. Whether you're in a restaurant or a neighbor's home, waxing carefully and buffing out slippery floors is essential in keeping guests and family members safe.

If you fall on the property owned by another individual or business due to unsafe conditions, you may have the right to sue for premises liability if you're injured. Call a personal injury attorney today in order to explore all your options.

It is also essential that a company gives the proper training to its employees. Construction jobs and restaurants often need signs that express dangerous working conditions or wet floors. If the employee isn't given proper training to handle a spill, or doesn't know how to properly navigate a dangerous area, the employer may be responsible in the case of an accident. Always wear proper footwear in the workplace and avoid slippery floors to prevent having to file a personal injury claim.
