Slip-And-Fall Accidents Are Caused By A Number Of Factors And Are Often Entirely Preventable
When you go to a grocery store, shopping mall or restaurant, you deserve to be protected from hazardous conditions. Property owners, managers and employees all have a duty to inspect the premises for potential hazards, make proper repairs and provide a safe venue for customers. The most common preventable contributing factors that lead to thousands of slip-and-fall accidents each year include:
- Liquid spills
- Broken or missing stair railings
- Furniture or boxes impeding walkways
- Inadequate lighting
- Unsecured or loose carpeting
- Uneven or warped wooden flooring
- Icy walkways
In many cases, simple corrective actions may prevent serious injuries. When property owners fail to uphold their respective duty of care, they may be held liable for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
