What Caused Your Slip and Fall Accident?
Slips, trips, and falls often occur on the property of a third party who has been negligent. A “third party” is anyone other than the victim of an accident – including a friend’s house or business that you visit. These accidents are also common at the workplace and result in workers’ compensation claims.
The primary cause of slips and falls is “negligence.” Negligence in regard to a slip and fall is the failure to take proper care in maintaining a property free from dangerous conditions. This might include leaving a puddle of water on the floor after being informed about it or stretching electrical cords across a walkway without proper warning.
Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents include:
- Rain, ice, and snow
- Loose mats or rugs
- Step ladders
- Poor lighting
- Cords and clutter in walkways
- Uneven floor surfaces
- Broken stairs and railways
