  • Bathroom Slip and Fall Accidents: What You Should Know About Compensation Claims

    September 4, 2018

    According to studies conducted by the US Center for Disease Control, nearly 240,000 people including teens and adults, are treated in ERs around the country for injuries suffered in bathroom slip and fall accidents.

    Bathrooms are extremely hazardous places, especially for older people. Wet floors, slippery products like soap and shower-gel, poor lighting, inability to keep balance while stepping in or out of the tub or shower cubicle, falling while using the toilet or wiping down the walls and counters etc are some of the reasons for slip and fall accidents in bathrooms. Many of these injuries occurred when the person fell and hit the floor, other injuries happened when they hit their heads against the counter, WC or shelves. They may also hit themselves against the tub, bathroom fixtures etc. Most of these injuries result in broken bones, facial and dental damage, traumatic brain injury, concussion, loss of consciousness etc.

    Bathroom floors in private and public places have to be kept safe and dry for use of all those who are legitimately allowed to use them. Regular cleaning, wiping, maintenance, warning signs regarding wet floors in public toilets etc are some of the ways to prevent these accidents. Owners of premises where these bathrooms are located have a responsibility to ensure that they are safe. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to a slip and fall accident in a bathroom caused by someone else’s fault or negligence, contact a personal injury lawyer immediately. You may be entitled to compensation.
