Common Avoidable Injuries We See From Accidents In Local Florida Businesses

Most people assume they are safe when going out to eat at their favorite Bradenton restaurants. The same can often be said for those who shop at local stores, and often, that is the case. Individuals go, dine, buy, and more without incident. However, on occasion, some form of negligence could occur on the part of a business owner or employee. Then, a customer/patron could get seriously hurt. It depends on what happens, but injuries you might sustain in a premises liability case include:

• Burns
• Fractures and broken bones
• Partial or full paralysis
Traumatic brain injury

The list can genuinely go on and on. So, are you safe at a franchise restaurant or shop? If certain conditions exist and you get hurt, safe probably isn’t the word you’d use to describe the place. That’s because you’ll likely be in pain and require medical assistance. But scans, exams, tests, etc., can get expensive pretty quickly in Bradenton, Sarasota and elsewhere across Southwest Florida. Plus, you might not be working after an accident, at least not until you get better, providing that happens. Now, let’s look at some scenarios to ensure we’re all on the same page.

Serious Injuries From Slip And Fall Accidents

Businesses often use rugs or mats at doors for people to wipe their wet feet on. What could possibly go wrong from that, right? After all, the company is doing what’s right and preventing slips. However, one day, an employee cleans a unit, and upon returning it to the floor, a corner curls up, posing a tripping hazard. The worker spots the issue and is about to fix it, but instead, their attention is suddenly diverted, and they walk away from the area.

Meanwhile, you pass through the door a few seconds later and do not see the problem. Your foot trips on the curled rug corner, and you fall, hitting the ground hard. Not only does your skull fracture in the event, but you also break your wrist trying to brace for the impact. Had the worker only taken the time to fix the matter, you probably could have avoided having such a terrible day.

A Spill On Aisle Twelve

You need to pick up a few things for the house this time, so you stop by a local Bradenton supermarket. Normally, this would be easy enough. You’d get a basket, grab some stuff, pay, and leave. But unfortunately, because of someone spilling juice on aisle twelve and an employee not setting up a wet floor sign after they cleaned the mess, your foot slips out from under you after stepping on the spot, and you hit the back of your head on the tile floor, leaving you with a long-term traumatic brain injury. That wet floor sign could have made all of the difference in the world, but now you’ll never know because the damage is done.

The Last Words

Do you believe a proprietor, or a person employed by them, was negligent? And is that action why you are significantly injured?

Once you give us a call, you’ll be able to schedule a meeting with an experienced and reputable personal injury attorney.
