Slip and fall injuries occur when a flooring or walkway has a defective or dangerous condition that should have been made safe when the owner of the property knew or should have known of the condition. Common examples of causes of slip and fall accidents are:
- Slippery substances such as water on the ground
- Leaking pipes or appliances
- Rainy weather where adequate indoor matting not applied to minimize rain water from being tracked in
- Sidewalk cracks or disrepair
- Failure to have friction materials on painted ground
Slip and falls can cause significant injuries necessitating medical attention. These incidents are often preventable had a property owner warned of the dangerous condition or made the area safe. Whether you are an employee of a property owner or a guest such as a store patron, you have the right to expect to be safe from dangerous conditions that could cause you injury.
