What Are the Common Causes of Slips and Falls?

Slips and falls can occur in a variety of settings. While anyone can be injured in a slip and fall accident, elderly individuals and young children are at a higher risk of suffering serious injuries in these incidents.

Some of the most common causes of slips and falls include:

  • Wet floors
  • Spilled food or drinks
  • Uneven flooring
  • Torn or frayed carpeting
  • Loose floorboards
  • Missing or uneven stairs
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Unmarked hazards
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Icy walkways
  • Unsalted ice
  • Defective handrails
  • Defective stairs or escalators

These are just a few examples of the many ways that slip and fall accidents can occur. If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident due to someone else's negligence, you may be able to file a claim for compensation for your damages.

What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

What you do in the moments, days, and weeks after a slip and fall accident is crucial to the success of your case. If you are able, there are a few steps you should take to protect your rights to compensation.

After a slip and fall accident, make sure you:

  • Report the accident to the appropriate person or party
  • Take pictures of the accident scene
  • Talk to any witnesses and get their contact information
  • Seek medical attention, even if you do not think you were injured
  • Keep a record of all medical treatment
  • Write down everything you can remember about the accident
  • Do not post about the accident on social media
  • Do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company

How Do You Prove Negligence in a Slip and Fall Case?

In order to be successful in your slip-and-fall case, you will need to prove that the property owner or manager was negligent. This means that you will need to show that there was a hazardous condition on the property and that the owner or manager knew or should have reasonably known about the hazard and failed to take appropriate action to fix it.

You will also need to show that the property owner or manager's negligence caused your injuries and that you suffered damages as a result.
