Dry and clean floors are essential to everyone’s safety. However, many stores like Kroger, Wal-Mart, and other supermarkets have been known to mop floors and leave sections of the floor wet and slippery. When wet floors occur, store employees should deploy warning signs. However, when negligent employees mop floors and fail to display warning signs cautioning customers about the wet floors, people can slip and fall from the hidden danger.
Slippery, dangerous floors can also be the result of spilled liquid, wet weather conditions, or over-waxing of the floor. When people slip and fall on wet substances or on freshly mopped floors that do not display the correct signage, they can suffer serious injuries, including:
- Rotator cuff tear
- Elbow fracture
- Shoulder and arm injuries
- Cervical and lumbar sprain and strain
- Cervical herniation with impingement
- Thoracic herniation
- Back and neck injuries
- Fractured femur
- Meniscus tear
- Other knee injuries, such as an ACL tear
- Head injury
- Traumatic brain injury
