Slip and Fall Injury
The Slip And Fall Hazards You Could Encounter In A Cold Stone Creamery
When you head to Cold Stone Creamery for a dish of ice cream, the last thing you might expect is to end your day with a visit to the emergency room. However, that is not as uncommon as you might think. Ice cream stores are famous for great treats and countless slip and fall injury accidents. Sure, some of the issues are due to the excited children and sometimes adults spilling ice cream and toppings on the floor. But the responsibility of cleaning up those and other slip and fall hazards always falls on the staff and owners of the store.
Some of the most common and very preventable causes of Cold Stone Creamery slip and fall injury accidents include:
Ice cream that has fallen to the floor and melted into a slippery mess
Milkshakes and drinks that are spilled
Ice that is dropped on the floor and ignored becomes a slippery and hard to see slip and fall hazard
Ice cream toppings from candy to fruit that has been dropped on the floor but not picked up or mopped up
Straw wrappers, napkins, and other paper debris that are dropped and remain on the floor increasing the slip and fall hazard for patrons
Damaged, folded, or saturated floor mats that increase the slip and fall and trip and fall hazards in Cold Stone Creamery stores
Water leaks that dampen the floor
Floors that were recently mopped but are not displaying the customary and essential caution sign to alert guests of the added slip and fall potential
What makes these Cold Stone Creamery slip and fall injury accidents even more upsetting is that most, if not all, of them, could have been prevented if the Cold Stone Creamery staff would spend a little time on housekeeping and emergency cleanup processes. In addition, spills and dropped food and treats need to be immediately addressed to ensure that the next customer walking into a Cold Stone Creamery store does not suffer a painful and possibly life-altering slip and fall injury.
Did A Lack Of Duty Of Care Cause Your Slip And Fall?
Duty of care is a legalese phrase that refers to the care that a business or property owner must provide to maintain the space in a safe condition. The basic duty of care is explained as the actions that the average prudent person would take. So when you think about food or drinks spilled on the floor, the average person would immediately clean up the slip and fall hazard. However, if the staff at Cold Stone Creamery does not follow these basic steps, they could be held responsible for any injuries caused by their lack of duty of care.
When you meet with your Cold Stone Creamery slip and fall lawyer to discuss the details of your injuries accident, they will help you better understand how a lack of duty of care by Cold Stone Creamery could mean that you have grounds for a Cold Stone Creamery slip and fall injury lawsuit.

Filing A Cold Stone Creamery Slip And Fall Injury Lawsuit
