Common Slip and Fall Accidents

Living in California, you may not worry much about slipping and falling. In colder states, icy sidewalks are a common hazard, but here we don't have to contend with ice and snow.

However, this doesn't mean that you don't need to be aware of slip and fall accidents. These accidents can take place anywhere, and can result in serious injuries. What are some of the most common slip and fall accidents?

Slippery floors

Think about how many times you have seen a "slippery when wet sign." Now think about how often you come across wet floors without a sign. If you are in a place where the floor is a hazard, a warning should be posted. Wet floors are one of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents.

Stairs

You may walk up and down staircases every day. Most of them are perfectly safe. However, all it takes is a loose step, debris or a slick surface to cause an accident. If the property owner knew about these issues, or enough time passed where they should have taken care of them, they could be liable for an accident.

Escalators and elevators

Sudden or unexpected movements in machinery like escalators and elevators could lead to a slip and fall. Property owners are required to maintain their equipment, and improper maintenance could make these machines more likely to cause a slip and fall accident.

These are just a few examples of potential slip and fall hazards. A slip and fall can happen at any time, and you may be entitled to compensation if a slip and fall results in an injury.
