Tips on Avoiding Slips and Trips in Your Shower

Tips on Avoiding Slips and Trips in Your Shower

It’s easy to imagine how a slippery shower surface may cause a fall that could result in a potentially serious injury. Have you considered the possible consequences of a guest in your home being injured in your bathroom? Typically, a standard California home insurance policy includes liability coverage which may help provide protection if a lawsuit is filed against you.

Here are some tips that may help prevent slips and falls in your shower:

•Place a non-slip mat in your shower and on the floor outside your shower, to help avoid slipping while stepping in and out. 
•Place a waterproof chair in your shower and install a hand held shower head, which may reduce the need to stand up while showering. 
•Consider installing grab bars in your bathroom and shower. Ensure these bars are robust and securely attached to the walls.
•Should your shower be installed over a bath consider replacing the bath with a much lower shower base. 

Although your California home insurance policy may help provide financial protection against a slipping related lawsuit, a much better plan is to take precautions to help prevent an accident occurring. After all, you really don’t want your house guest to be injured while showering in your bathroom.
