Why You Should Hire Us

What Are the Leading Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents?

Dangerous conditions and hazards from negligent property maintenance can cause falls. Premises liability laws protect people who suffered injuries in these types of accidents. These laws make it clear that property owners have a reasonable duty to ensure that their premises are kept free of preventable hazards that could harm someone. If a negligent homeowner, business owner, or landowner is at fault for failing to identify and correct the hazard that caused your slip and fall accident, you could be entitled to compensation.

Some examples of property hazards that can lead to slip and fall accidents include:

  • Missing railings
  • Broken steps
  • Wet floors
  • Icy sidewalks
  • Obstacles and debris
  • Potholes
  • Uneven ground
  • Loose floorboards

While most slip and fall accidents are minor and cause only minor injuries (i.e. bumps and bruises, scraped knees, small cuts, and twisted ankles), some falls, can be catastrophic and cause serious injuries, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and more.
