Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
Property owners have the duty to protect you from unreasonable slip and trip hazards on their property. What does an unreasonable hazard look like, though?
In slip and fall cases, it is commonly found that the plaintiff slipped or tripped on:
- Raised carpeting
- Slippery tiling
- Loose gravel or dirt on concrete
- Cracked or split asphalt
- Uneven steps or stairs
- Stray electrical or networking cables
A slip hazard becomes unreasonable as soon as the property owner learns about it and does nothing to correct it. For example, if someone spills a cup of water on a back aisle of a quiet retail store, then the manager would likely not know about it immediately. Slipping on the water within minutes of it being spilled may reduce the store’s liability because no staff members had a chance to see the spill.
On the other hand, if the water spill is allowed to pool for minutes on end and you slip on it, then you likely have a slip and fall accident claim with validity. It is reasonable to expect staff members to walk to store every few minutes to look for customers and hazards alike.
