A man in a different state recently claimed that he hurt himself at a Baskin Robbins eatery due to the company’s negligence. Specifically, he suffered injuries in a slip-and-fall accident. Slip-and-fall accidents that stem from property owners’ carelessness in West Virginia or elsewhere and cause people to be seriously injured are grounds for litigation.

In the out-of-state case, the man was reportedly at the ice cream shop one day when the accident happened. He alleged there was a wet substance lying on the floor. According to the lawsuit, an employee who was doing some cleaning simply left this substance there.

The man ended up stepping into the substance, slipping and falling. He has therefore accused Baskin Robbins of negligence. He is seeking unspecified damages as a part of the suit.

When slip-and-fall accidents occur in the state of West Virginia and cause people to suffer avoidable injuries, these individuals may opt to file premises liability claims against the owners of the properties where the accidents happened. Competent proof of negligence is necessary to establish liability in these types of civil court cases, at which case claims for financial damages will be adjudicated. A monetary award may be helpful for covering medical bills, the loss of wages due to being unable to work normally and other accident-related losses. No amount of money can undo the events leading to a person’s injury stemming from dangerous business property conditions, but it may help to address emotional distress as well as pain and suffering resulting from the ordeal.
