Most slip and fall accidents happen at retail stores. Business owners, property owners, and construction companies have an obligation to protect individuals from slipping and falling. Typically, these means ensuring all surfaces are level, ice and snow are removed, staircases have no broken steps, floors are not left wet, and debris is moved from walkways. Common causes include:
Wet surfaces can include a variety of circumstances that cause a slip and fall accident. If snow and ice are not properly removed after a winter storm, the property owner can be held responsible. If spilled juice in a gas station is not cleaned up and visitors are not given notice of a wet surface, the property owner can again be held responsible.
What if broken stairs pose a significant risk to individuals or handrails are not properly installed for assistance going upstairs? What if a significant crack in a sidewalk has not been repaired posing a tripping hazard? What if there is a giant hole in the parking lot? All are examples of instances a property owner could be held responsible for failing to provide a safe environment.
Random objects in the walkway can pose a significant hazard and it is up to the property owner to ensure all walkways and surfaces are clear of debris that could trip a visitor.
