Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
The most common types of premises liability claims are slip & fall and trip & fall accidents:
- Many of these are caused by the following:
- Obstructed walkways / stairways
- Subway stairs / platforms
- Wet and slippery floors
- Inadequate / poor lighting
When a person slips and falls, he or she may suffer from a number of painful and debilitating injuries, including injuries to the back or spinal cord, neck injuries, paralysis, brain injury, internal bleeding or bruising, broken or fractured bones, and more. All of these injuries will likely require a great deal of medical care and rehabilitation and may prevent the victim from being able to work or continuing to enjoy the same quality of life he or she had before the accident.
Do I Have a Valid Slip & Fall Claim?
A slip and fall claim based on a person slipping and falling on someone’s property which results in an injury to that person. For any premises liability case to be valid, there must be proof that the property owner’s negligence violated the reasonable safety of the visitor(s).
If there is no negligence, there is no case. Some examples of negligence include such actions as not using wet floor signs while or after a floor has been mopped, failing to repair damaged stair rails or sidewalks, or even leaving dangerous tripping hazards out. Serious injuries can occur from a slip and fall accident, having lasting consequences for the victim. In order to file a slip and fall claim, there are very exact procedures that must be met. Evidence needs to be gathered and complete documentation of the incident must be made.
