Understanding Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries occur when a person slips, trips, or falls, and becomes injured on a property other than their own. When others do not properly maintain their property or notify the public of an issue with the property, such as a wet floor, accidents that cause serious injury can occur. Such an accident can cause injuries that are expensive to recover from, resulting in costly medical bills and even lost wages.
Conditions that Cause Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries can happen for a number of reasons, so it is important to be cautious in an attempt to avoid serious injury. However, even the most cautious people may fall victim to a slip and fall accident. The following is a list of conditions that commonly cause slip and fall injuries.
- Torn carpet
- Uneven transition between different types of flooring
- Staircases that are narrow or lack railing
- Darkness or poor lighting preventing proper vision
- Unmaintained public sidewalks with cracks or broken pieces
