Fall in the Foyer: Water on the Floor

Did you know that some people are eligible to make a claim of compensation if they slip and fall on tracked in rainwater or snow in the foyer area between the exterior and interior doors? These cases are tough, but certain principles apply.

First, was there a rug? Was it placed in a position to cover the travelled area? Was it soaked? These are all important questions. Second, what was the color of the floor/tile? Did it hide the clear water? Was the color light? Was the tracked in water/ice clear? Third, were there any distractions such as shadows or bright sunlight? Was the person carrying something large? Was there a lot of traffic?

We have been successful in recovering in many of these cases on behalf of our clients.
