No Liability on Multiple Slip and Fall Claims
We handled multiple slip & fall claims for an insurance company who insures a large commercial high-rise building. We took statements from multiple employees, janitors, and witnesses, and we obtained copies of the maintenance company contracts and reviewed indemnity agreements. Although we determined there was no potential to tender the claim the insured's janitorial service vendor, we did determine the insured had no liability as the insured had taken reasonable precautions to prevent any slip and fall incidents and that the claimants had a duty to use care. The insured had long walk-off mats and umbrella bags in place to prevent any un-natural accumulation of water. The insured had employees at the doors warning all persons entering the building to use caution. The insured had janitors on stand-by to mop any accumulation of water on the floor. Because of our detailed inspection and investigation in each case, we were able to recommend to our client in each slip and fall claim that the insured had no liability.
