Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and Fall Accidents have many causes and can result in many types of physical and emotional harm. Even a slight slip on a piece of debris on a grocery store floor can bring the customer crashing down to a hard floor, injuring skin, bones and perhaps even causing breakage of a joint or a head, neck or spine injury. These accidents generally happen quickly and without warning; older persons are especially prone to slip and fall injuries.

  • Private Property – Owners are responsible for keeping walkways, parking lots and other areas free from hazards. Problem areas must be clearly marked, so visitors can avoid hazardous terrain. If you attend a gathering, and there is loose debris on the entry walkway or parking lot, you could slip and fall. If potholes are not marked or fenced off, you could unknowingly step into one, fall and break your leg or arm.
  • Public Property – Retail or government outlets, grocery stores, sidewalks, parking lots and other areas that accommodate foot traffic must be maintained for safety. This means removal of debris, snow and other things that could cause injury to pedestrians. Uneven cement walkways or parking areas are common hazards that need to be marked as such or repaired.
