Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are very common, especially on properties that are unsafe. Property owners actually have a legal responsibility to ensure that their properties are safe to be on or near. If they fail in this responsibility, the effect may be devastating for an unsuspecting person. Many factors can lead to a slip and fall accident. In some cases, these injuries are serious
and may require extensive medical attention. In premises liability lawsuits, those who are injured in slip and fall accidents on unsafe property can sometimes obtain financial compensation from the property owner.

If you or someone you love has been injured on another person’s property in a slip and fall accident, contact an experienced Kankakee personal injury lawyer of Spiros Law, P.C., today by calling (815) 929-9292.

Five Causes

There are many things that can cause a slip and fall accident, but some are reported more commonly than others. Five of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Worn / old stairways or staircases
  • Missing handrails / guardrails
  • Uneven pavement / potholes
  • Unexpected spills or liquids on a walkway
  • Debris scattered in a walkway

These causes of slips and falls may not seem obtrusive, but they can lead to serious accidents and injuries. Sometimes these injuries can be extremely expensive to treat, but many slip and fall accident victims can obtain financial support through an injury lawsuit against a negligent property owner.
