Flatbush Slip and Fall Lawyers
Most Flatbush business owners are responsible people who take customer safety seriously. But sometimes haste, honest mistakes, or outright negligence lead to an innocent person suffering a slip and fall injury.
For these individuals, life can become a never-ending series of health problems, financial concerns, and ever-present worry. They deserve compensation for their injuries, their suffering, and related expenses.
But obtaining the help you need isn’t always easy, especially if you try to deal with insurance companies or negligent parties on your own. That’s why we urge you to get in touch with a qualified slip and fall attorney today. At Douglas and London, we stand ready to help.
Why so many slip and fall accidents?
Fall-related accidents account for more than 8 million emergency room visits each year, according to research. What’s behind this epidemic of serious injuries? Common factors include:
- Wet surfaces: Business owners and facility managers are responsible for maintaining a clean, sanitary environment for the public. But they also have a duty to alert visitors to potential hazards, a job which they sometimes neglect.
- Physical obstructions: Keeping store shelves lined with products takes constant work. But stocking crew often get in a hurry, leaving heavy containers or other items directly in the path of unwary shoppers.
- Unmarked work zones: It’s only reasonable for property owners to keep their facilities in good shape. But workers or supervisors sometimes fail to alert the public to potential dangers, such as extension cords or misplaced hand tools.
- Missing or damaged flooring: Whether they’re covered with carpeting or tiles, floors in public places require regular care to remain safe. But the above can develop snags, loose spots, or uneven surfaces that set the stage for an accident.
The injured party suffers physical pain, loss of mobility, and the stress that comes with lost income and high medical bills.
