What Causes Slip and Fall Accidents?
Your slip and fall attorney can investigate to determine the precise cause of your accident. Our team can assist you if you slipped or tripped on:
- A spill of water, oil, grease, juice, or coffee
- Dropped or leftover food items
- Broken, cracked, or raised floor tiles;
- Loose rugs and mats
- Improperly stored supplies
Additionally, rain, snow, or ice can make walkways and floors slippery, especially if not properly maintained. Finally, inadequate lighting can make hazards hard to see, leading to slip-and-fall accidents.
Most slip-and-fall accidents are preventable with proper maintenance, active monitoring for hazards, prompt cleanup of spills and debris, and regular inspections. When businesses or property owners fail in these responsibilities, they can be held liable for resulting injuries.
