How can smart flooring choices help prevent premises liability accidents?
Every year New York plays host to thousands of slip and fall accidents. These types of accidents occur when someone slips on a floor wet with water or some other liquid due to negligence or carelessness. Premises liability accidents can make business owners, local government, or homeowners liable for physical injuries or damages if they were aware of the danger and did nothing about it.
In order to help prevent slip and fall accidents and save themselves from potential lawsuits many businesses are turning to non-slip, non-skid flooring choices. The most effective flooring choice in preventing slipping and falling is carpeting. Carpet is absorbent and abrasive which makes it the perfect non-slip surface. Unfortunately, not all businesses can afford the cost of covering their entire floor in carpeting or the costs of cleaning, maintaining, and replacing carpeting.
