Look Both Ways Before You Walk
When you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, one of the main things your attorney will have to prove to the insurance company is that you, as the victim, did not knowingly slip and fall. The insurance company will want to know that the person who fell had taken every precaution to stay safe, but due to the situation created by the premises owner, was injured anyways.
Wet floors are a classic example. It loves to rain in Florida and it is common to enter any building, especially during summer, and see the yellow caution notices that the floor may be wet. A person entering the building must take care to do so with caution because the floors may be wet. However, at the same time, the building owner is not completely relieved of responsibility. Just because they have placed warning signs up around the entrance way, they still must take care and mop standing water and try to keep the environment within their premises as safe as possible for all those who enter.
