Head Injuries Due to a Wet Floor In Bathroom

Bathrooms can be dangerous places. Falls in bathrooms are likely to cause serious injury, and can even cause death. In places where the public is invited for business purposes, such as restaurants, barrooms, hotels, and stadiums, there is always the possibility of sustaining injury in a bathroom. If you or someone you love suffered injuries from falling on a wet bathroom floor in Georgia, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Our personal injury attorneys are dedicated to fighting for their clients' rights, so our clients receive the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries under the law.

Duty of Care Issues in Georgia Premises Liability Claims

In Georgia, the owner of a business owes a duty of care to patrons to keep the premises safe.  However, the law places limitations on an owner's liability. For instance, the owner is not liable for injuries resulting from open and obvious conditions or conditions the owner did not know about.

Many factors contribute to falls on wet bathroom floors. If the tiled floor gets wet from patrons dripping water on the floor while washing their hands, the collection of water on the floor should be something about which the building owners are concerned. In order to prevent injury, they should perform regular bathroom inspections and then appropriately mop spills. Failing to do so may constitute negligence. 

Each Injury Case Has a Unique Set of Facts

While each case is unique, there are steps you can take to put yourself in the best position possible if you suffered injuries from falling on a wet bathroom floor. First, you should seek medical attention if you are severely hurt.  Secondly, immediately inform the owner or operator of the place that you fell, and that you are injured. Very commonly, businesses will fill out incident reports to document what happened.  Another tip to consider is to take note of any witnesses, the lighting conditions, the state of the floor as well as the commode and sinks. Take photos if possible.  Documenting as much as you can shortly after your fall, assuming you are able, can significantly help prove your claim later.
