Slip and Fall on Wet Floor: Milwaukee Personal Injury Lawyers
Wet floors at Milwaukee commercial properties are incredibly common due to rain, snow, and cleanings. While ensuring a completely dry environment may be impossible, especially with customers tracking in snow and rain, landlords, owners, and managers are still responsible for trying to prevent injury from slick floors.
Retail stores often use easy to maintain linoleum flooring in their buildings. Liquids, from water to cleaning solutions, cause these types of floors to become incredibly slippery and increase the chance of a fall. Even wet carpeting from an incomplete steam cleaning or melted snow can create a dangerous situation.
Making a Case
After slipping on a wet floor, document the area with plenty of pictures. If there is a wet floor sign, make sure to indicate its position in relation to where you fell. A wet floor sign can still indicate negligence on behalf of the business owner. If they were aware of a spill yet did nothing to contain it or clear it, they may still be held accountable for their actions. For example, if a pipe is leaking and only one sign is placed, the puddle continuing to spread past the sign indicates negligence.
