Different Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

Irresponsible property owners can create trip or slip and fall hazards at virtually every turn. The guest or visitor who does not constantly watch their step may find themselves in a painful accident a moment later without warning. It is crucial that property controllers, homeowners, and store managers make constant effort to remove hazards from their property, no matter how it has formed.

Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Lifted or frayed carpeting
  • Cracked and slippery tiling
  • Uneven or worn steps
  • Stairs without handrails
  • Lack of lighting in dark areas
  • Clutter on the ground
  • Loose wiring
  • Ice on pavement

Who is Most Susceptible to Slip & Fall Injuries?

While everyone can be seriously injured due to a slip and fall accident, the elderly are the most susceptible to severe harm. Accidental falls and the complications arising from them are among the leading causes of death in seniors over the age of 65 in America. With age comes frailty and a tumble that would bruise a younger person could cause an elder to suffer immensely.

Children are also vulnerable to slip and fall injuries. As a child’s body is still developing and growing, a joint dislocation, bone break, or head injury sustained from a trip can become a permanent health condition. Whenever children or elders are present, extra caution must be used by property owners to guarantee everyone’s safety.

Proving Liability in Slip & Fall Cases

When determining who is liable for a slip and fall accident, there are two factors that weigh heavily more than anything others:

  • Invitation: Was the person who fell on the property allowed to be there? An intruder or unwelcome guest might not be able to file a solid claim if it can be shown that they were not supposed to be on the property at all.
  • Duration: How long did the hazard that caused the fall exist? A property owner must be aware of the hazard, or should have been reasonably aware it could exist, before they can be found liable for a resulting accident. For example: If you spill water in a restaurant and slip on it a minute later, you are liable for the accident because the manager or owner would have not had a reasonable chance to react.

Taking Your Slip and Fall Case to Court in Waterbury: Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer
