If there was not a wet floor sign, he could sue, from the stories I've heard from America.
Think about it this way: it's better that this guy gets artificial satisfaction than actual monetary compensation. Your boss simply made a business decision.
Something tells me you did put a sign out. One. Which probably isn't enough for whiny gentlemen who can't use their eyes... Sigh.
I'm not a sue-happy person, so I wouldn't. By OP using the words "stormed through" I imagine he was pretty angry whether it be at the workers or personal stuff (I imagine it's at the workers as well, but maybe I'm wrong. That's why I say whiny), and he probably wasn't looking. He slipped, it was his own fault (Until OP says they didn't put out a sign).
If someone is "storming through" a lobby or a corridor, it stands to reason the person is not in a good mood. I would hope OP put out a "Wet Floor" sign but the guy may have missed it if he was upset about something. But heck, if I see someone mopping a floor, I'm smart enough to sense that the floor may be wet and take caution, even without a sign.
