Hollywood Crack or Holes in a Floor

Business owners usually spend a great deal of time taking care to ensure that their company properties look attractive to prospective clients and customers. However, property owners also have an obligation to make sure that their premises are safe for employees and patrons. When business owners fail to do so, they can be held liable for any injuries that result. Business owners, for example, are expected to deal with holes and cracks in the floor of their premises so that no one has a trip and fall accident on their Hollywood property.

If an uneven floor has caused you injury, you may have a legal claim because a property owner should have warned you about the hazard or have fixed the issue. If you think you may have a claim, contact Flaxman Law Group to find out what steps you can take to seek compensation. You may be able to pursue compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages.

What are Business Property Owners Expected to Do?

There are many things that business owners can do to prevent injuries caused by holes and cracks in the floor:

  • Check the business property regularly for hazards
  • Fix any hazards and floor unevenness promptly
  • If a floor problem cannot be fixed right away, place signs around the affected area warning employees and visitors of the danger
  • Mark any areas where visitors are not permitted
  • Perform regular maintenance of the business property to ensure its safety
