Lawyers LOVE slip-and-fall lawsuits! And who can blame them? In any type of commercial facility all it takes is a spilled drink, leaky water fountain or messy bathroom patron to initiate unsafe conditions.
Single incident court awards recently broke through into the
million dollar range.
According to hotel industry figures at least 42% of the accidents
on their premises are due to slips and falls.
Both the California and Florida Supreme Courts recently reversed precedent in premises liability cases, placing the burden of proof on property owners!
The trend towards hard surface floors and an aging population creates a dangerous synergy. The young and the old are especially at risk of slip-and-fall accidents. How serious is this problem? According to the CDC:
Falls are the leading cause of death among people 65 years and older.
In the US one in every three individuals over 65 falls each year.
Of all fall deaths, more than 60% involve people who are 75 years or older.
In 2001, more than 11,600 people ages 65 and older died from fall-related injuries
These figures are impossible to ignore and the solution
is literally pennies per square foot! What better proof of going above and beyond the minimum requirements than a SkidFree anti-slip treatment certificate and maintenance plan?
