    I was at a McDonald’s in geelong when I was taking my 4 year old to the toilet and I slipped on an extremely wet (almost slimy) floor. I didn’t hit the ground, I did a kind of splits and rolled one of my ankles. I instantly knew I’d hurt myself and pulled muscles and rolling my ankle I had instant throbbing and couldn’t put weight on it.

    I noticed there was no wet floor sign up. I mentioned there wasn’t and should be, an employer said “there was one up earlier” and called out to a fellow employer to get the sign. A little too late. Not to mention the fact this slippery slimy floor was directly in front of the entrance to the children’s playground which is extremely risky!

    I wanted to know if I have a case? Need advice or thoughts? I’m
    Not one to normally kick up a fuss but I think it was really negligent on their behalf and what if it was one of my children who slipped and hurt themselves. Mum
    Of three and struggling to walk around isn’t exactly ideal. No staff has approached me or asked if I’m ok (just other patrons) they quickly out a sign and ignored me even when I was leaning on the bench in pain before having to rush my 4 y.o to the bathroom.

    Thank you in advance.
