At some time or another you have probably watched a comedy when someone has slipped over deliberately on a banana peel just to make you laugh. Most likely the actor wasn’t really injured but when ordinary people slip and fall serious injuries may take place.
If you don’t have the salary of a successful actor you may find it hard to make ends meet after a slip and fall accident.
There are the cost of medical treatment and loss of earnings to cover, let alone the pain and suffering you may have to endure. If you have slipped and fallen and been injured and it was not fault you are legally entitled to file a compensation claim from the person who caused your injury.
You will need to talk to an experienced personal injury attorney who will explain the legal options available to you.
What You Should Do If You Were Injured
Ice cream becomes slippery and hard to handle when it’s been out of the freezer, even for a few seconds on a hot, sultry day. Children in particular are eager to get the ice cream, but may knock pieces off onto the floor.
This may cause slippery hazards for other customers leading to a higher chance of a slip and fall accident. It’s the duty of outlets like Cold Stone Creamery, or any other ice cream parlor, to ensure their floors are kept free of dangerous slip and fall hazards.
Sometimes managers may not employ sufficient staff so the floors don’t become a priority. This is a silly mistake on their part because if someone slips on ice cream and falls forwards a serious head injury may be the outcome.
Once this happens the manager may be accused of negligence and it may give you the right to file a personal injury claim.
Hiring Legal Representation
Don’t be tempted to go back to the store once you have recovered from your slip and fall injuries. You will need an experienced and dedicated personal injury attorney to represent you so that you can be certain of getting a just compensation claim for injuries that were not your fault.
