Negligent Causes of Slip and Falls
According to premises liability law, every property owner is responsible for keeping their properties safe for visitors. When an unsafe condition exists, they must warn anyone on the property of that danger. Thus, a slip and fall accident claim may allege negligence in the form of failing to fix or warn of a known safety hazard. A claim may also be filed over a safety hazard that the property owner should have reasonably known about. Other common negligent causes of slip and falls are a lack of thorough inspections and a lack of regular maintenance.
Slip and Fall Accidents Are Often Caused By:
- Wet, icy, or otherwise slippery surfaces
- Poor lighting, or a lack thereof
- Uneven surfaces and floors
- Unsecured electrical wires and cords
- Cluttered hallways and floors
