There is no clear cut answer just yet, not until the facts are investigated. In general, bathroom fall accident cases are successful when there is some evidence that the owner knew or should have known about the problem. For example, if the water was caused by a leaking pipe or toilet, there may be sufficient evidence that the owner knew about the problem before the accident occurred and had time to resolve the leak, but was negligent in failing to do so.
In addition, if there were no injuries or the injuries were minor, bringing a lawsuit may not be the best course of action. Fall down accident plaintiffs must be able to prove that they suffered damages, and if the damages are minor, it might not be worth the effort and stress of bringing a lawsuit.
