Wet Floor Accidents

Wet-floor-accident-guideInjuries Due To Wet Floors

The dangers posed by wet floors are among the easiest to manage and eliminate for building owners. They are also among the most common dangers faced by pedestrians as they enter buildings and as they move about on commercial and residential property.

Regardless of the care taken by people walking on wet surfaces, slip-and-fall accidents will occur because wet floors are inherently unsafe. If you have been injured due to a slip, trip and fall accident on a wet surface, don't question whether the accident was your fault. Instead, contact Smiley & Smiley, LLP, to learn how you can hold building and property owners responsible for negligence and obtain financial compensation.

At Smiley & Smiley, LLP, we have helped premises liability victims in New York City and surrounding communities for over 52 years. To discuss your slip-and-fall claim with an experienced litigator, call 212-986-2022 or toll free 866-SMILEYLAW.

Floors can become wet and slippery due to the negligent use of cleaning solutions, through spills and through the dangerous accumulation of snow and ice and of meltwater. Our team of attorneys, with the aid of experienced investigators who have all served as police detectives, has handled numerous slip-and-fall accident cases, and has recovered many six- and seven-figure awards through negotiations and courtroom litigation.

What To Do If You Are Injured In A Wet Floor/Slip-And-Fall Accident

If you fall in a grocery store or on other commercial property, report the accident to the store manager immediately. If a written report is filed, evidence regarding the time of the injury, the conditions that caused the injury and the names of any eyewitnesses will be available if you file a claim. Then contact our firm immediately following medical treatment.
