Causes of Slip & Fall Cases
While the actual causes behind slip and fall cases may vary, the root source
is always one thing: property owner negligence. People who are visiting
someone else’s property, whether that be a retail store, office
location, or home, should not have to worry about unreasonable hazards
that will make them take a tumble. This right to assume their own safety
will be respected and prioritized is what can shift liability onto the
What are common causes of slip and fall injuries?
Slippery surfaces: Spilled drinks, leaking water sources, ice over concrete, etc. all need
to be identified and addressed as soon as possible by a property’s
controller, especially in areas where there is visitor foot traffic.
Broken handrails: Stairwells and steps must be completed with appropriate handrails. Broken
or missing rails dramatically increase the chance of someone having a
misstep and tumbling.
Loose carpeting and debris: The smallest piece of uplifted carpeting can catch someone’s foot
and cause them to fall. The same can be said of loose wiring going across
walkways and bits of dirt and debris that should have been cleaned up.
Dark conditions: Inadequate lighting in key areas throughout a residence or business may
lead to people tripping and falling. As swapping out a dim lightbulb takes
almost no time or effort, it is quite inexcusable when dark conditions
are the cause of a visitor’s injuries.
Any sort of slip and fall injury can cause serious injuries, such as broken
bones, paralysis, and brain damage. In fact, tripping and falling, with
the complications the resulting injuries cause, are believed to be the
number one cause of catastrophic injury and death among elders over the
age of 70. Compensation for such injuries needs to be maximized to allow
the injured party to recuperate in peace.
