West Palm Beach, FL beachside slip and fall can have devastating consequences – whether you slipped on a slick
floor at a public bathroom and suffered a concussion, or you hurt yourself
at a concession stand. What are some common ways people hurt themselves
in South Florida, and what are typical consequences of these accidents?
Examples of West Palm Beach, FL Beach Slip and Fall Accidents
- A tropical storm floods a beach arcade with slick oil (possiblyfrom the
roads). An unsuspecting senior goes out after the storm to check out the
beautifully churning waves. She steps on the surprisingly slick arcade,
slips, and breaks her hip during the fall.
- A group of teenagers out for a raucous Saturday afternoon heads to a beachside
concession stand to enjoy ice cream sundaes, french fries, and other foods
which are not necessarily good for them but certainly taste good. Unfortunately,
a restaurant worker at the food stand failed to mop up a spill from a
dripping soda machine. A 19-year-old girl slips and hits her head hard
on the tile. She is rushed to the hospital with a concussion.
What to Do After a Beachside Slip and Fall Accident?
Step one, obviously, is to get immediate medical help. If possible, collect
evidence from the scene, including photographs of where you slipped and
fell and documentation of what employees said about the conditions such
as, “I really should have mopped up that spill earlier.”
