Spring Break Injuries: Slip and Fall at a Night Club
Spring Break is the quintessential time for teens and young adults to party. In addition to heading to the beach, they’ll also hit the clubs for a bit of partying at night. Accidents can sometimes occur at nightclubs. People spill their drinks, leaving the floor slippery and wet. It’s oftentimes dark so that even if there is a wet floor sign up, party-goers might not see it. Still, it is the responsibility of the owner of the nightclub to maintain a safe environment for club visitors. In fact, any nightclubs hosting Spring Break promotions should make sure that they have adequate lighting and plenty of staff on hand to see to any spills that occur so that people don’t get injured in a slip and fall.
Regardless of whether you’re a high-schooler or college student on break, if you were partying at a night club during Spring Break and had a slip and fall accident occur in the dark, then you could be entitled to compensation for any injuries you sustained in the fall. If you are injured in a slip and fall due to the negligence of a night club owner to keep the club safe at all times, the night club owner could be held liable for your injuries.
The best thing to do after being injured in a nightclub slip and fall over Spring Break is to contact an attorney (after seeking medical attention, of course). A Tampa personal injury attorney like those from Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore can help determine whether or not you indeed have a case that warrants the services of a Tampa slip and fall attorney. You should know that most Tampa slip and fall attorneys require no upfront payment. Rather, a Tampa personal injury attorney will receive compensation if and only if you receive a financial judgment as a result of your case.
