Hollywood A Slippery Floor
In private businesses, such as stores, restaurants, and other premises, it is expected that you will be provided with a reasonably safe area for your business transactions. Property owners are expected to take care of the property in order to ensure that it is safe for everyone, including patrons and employees. A slippery floor, while it can seem like a minor thing, can lead to devastating injuries and is often a completely preventable cause of accidents.

Injuries resulting from a slip and fall accident or a slippery floor can seem very minor and many people assume that they do not need to launch a personal injury claim in Hollywood or their community in these types of situations. However, a fall from a slippery floor can have devastating and even permanent effects. People who have slipped on a slippery floor can suffer from:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Permanent head injuries
- Dental injuries
- Back injuries
- Facial injuries
- Broken hips
Head injuries can even prove fatal, especially for elderly victims. Even a simple fracture, however, can lead to thousands of dollars in medical devices, doctors’ visits, medical bills, lost wages, and more. There is no need for you to pay these costs out-of-pocket if someone's negligence has led to your injuries and it can be proven that you deserve compensation in your case.Why Slippery Floors Lead to Injury
There are many reasons why slip and fall accidents due to slippery floors occur:
- Businesses understaff their companies to save money
- Employees may be negligent in checking for slippery floors and cleaning them up
- Slippery surface floors may not be given proper treads or warning signs to warn visitors
- There may be no policy at the business to ensure that slippery floors are noticed and dealt with in time
No matter why an accident occurs, it is important to get answers and justice. In many cases, pursuing a legal claim by speaking with a personal injury attorney in Hollywood results not only in financial compensation that can help you deal with the unexpected medical costs, but in many cases pursuing a legal claim can also help make important safety changes to the business so that others are not injured in a similar way.
