Slip and fall accidents have consistently been of top concern for healthcare providers, aging individuals, lawyers and businesses alike. Those concerns have also spurred interest in slip resistance treatments.
WHY? Millions of people fall every year and as the 2012 Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. case demonstrated, those incidents could very well end in a lawsuit and a lot of money out of your pocket.
For those that would like a refresher, in the case that we are referring to, Wal-mart Stores, Inc. had to pay a staggering $800,000 dollars to a woman who slipped and fell at one of the company’s locations in Florida. It was a decision that momentarily created shock waves, which spread out across the southern half of the United States and beyond.
In the aftermath of the court’s decision, businesses began aggressively looking at better ways to reduce the likelihood that their customers would become involved in slip and fall accidents. That’s when the interest in effective, efficient slip resistance treatments really started to heat up. And who could blame businesses for taking a closer look at them? Who would blame home owners if they wanted to better protect their families?
