Causes of Slip-and-Falls
Most often, slip and fall accidents occur when a property owner or tenant fails to clean up a wet floor or mark or fix an uneven surface. Slip and fall accidents can occur in locations including businesses, public property, and even private residences.
A number of obstacles and hazards can cause a slip and fall, including:
- Unmarked wet spots
- Uneven flooring
- Poor lighting
- Insufficient handrails
- Uneven floor mats
Liability for Slip and Fall Injuries
If your fall occurred on public property or at a business, you may be able to hold the property manager or property owner responsible. If the accident occurred at a private residence, the insurance company may cover your claim.
To recover damages in a premises liability claim, you must show that the injuries you suffered are the result of a slip, trip or fall, and were caused by an unreasonable risk, condition, or element that the property owner or manager failed to warn or correct.
