The laundromat is one of the more surprisingly dangerous places for people to suffer a debilitating slip and fall injury.
The Bronx personal injury law firm of Feiner & Lavy understands the hazards of a laundromat, and how many of our friends and neighbors in Grand Concourse, Riverdale, Co-Op City, Pelham, and Fordham rely on a local wash-and-fold to keep their clothes clean.
What do we mean by hazardous? To begin with, laundromats are places where a lot of water is used. This immediately raises a caution flag because water on a floor can quickly become a slip and fall injury hazard. Right behind the water is the soap used to clean clothes. Liquid laundry detergents, other additives like bleach and fabric softeners can create a slick on the floor that presents a danger to anyone in the facility.
In a facility that is well run and where there is ample attention to detail, this may never result in a big problem. Unfortunately, we live in a world with less-than-ideal standards. A lack of sufficient staff can quickly result in negligence in terms of cleaning up water hazards and slippery dangers on the floors.
As Feiner & Lavy knows, the floors at a laundromat are hard and unyielding. A fall can immediately result in a variety of injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Back and neck injuries
- Hip and knee injuries that could lead to expensive joint replacement
- A damaged shoulder or elbow
These are the kind of injuries that can be life changing. And if you’re an older Bronx resident, this can move you from your beloved apartment to the nursing home, robbing you of your freedom and independence.
This is why you need the best personal injury firm in the Bronx for this type of injury: Feiner & Lavy. We will fight for your injury damages to get you the maximum settlement.
