Protecting yourself from slip-and-fall lawsuits

One of the primary reasons wet floor signs can prove to be extremely worthwhile investments is the proliferation of workplace lawsuits in lieu of injuries from slip-and-falls onsite. In the case of workplace injuries, workers' compensation can often apply to any injury sustained on the premises, regardless of fault. However, the placement of a visible marker as pertains to wet floors can aid businesses in reducing their liability.
In clearly marking a wet surface, businesses place the legal obligation of maintaining safety on the visitor, as businesses cannot be held accountable to constantly and painstakingly regulate dampness in public spaces. An extremely affordable wet floor sign can relieve hundreds of thousands of dollars of probable medical fees and keep workplaces hazard-free.
Adams v. Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc.
One of the most notable (and particularly relevant) slip-and-fall lawsuits occurred in September 1989, when a woman slipped in the entryway of a Winn-Dixie supermarket. Not only had there been a wet floor sign in place, which the plaintiff argued was not visible (despite its placement immediately at the entranceway of the building), the floor had been mopped a short time before to ensure a lack of puddle accumulation.
By taking these simple precautions, the supermarket owner was freed of legal liability for the injury. Thus, by taking relatively simple and practical precautions and clearly marking wet floors with the proper signage, businesses rid themselves of moral and legal responsibility for sustained injuries on their premises.
In bad weather, extra precautions are necessary
Inclement weather is one of the most prevalent causes of slip-and-fall injuries. Precipitation can be tracked into interior public spaces or workplaces. Particularly in colder weather, melting ice and snow can cause unforeseen accumulation of water, generating slippery surfaces. While placing a wet floor sign immediately at the entrance of a building (and, for good measure, further along in the interior of a public space as well) should always be the first line of precaution, this may not legally exclude business owners from liability.
Property owners should always take care to sprinkle salt or sand on sidewalks and outdoor stairs and regularly mop interior areas to ensure their visitors' safety.
Slippery When Wet Sign
Having a sign in the right place can save vast sums of money in the long run – while also communicating to your customers that you care about their well-being.
