Identifying Common Slip & Fall Hazards

Slip and fall accidents are the most common reason for filing a premises liability claim, which involves the claimant getting hurt on the defendant’s property. Whether you were visiting a friend’s home, shopping in a retail store, or walking through a commercial property like a shared office space, you could sue for compensation if you slipped or tripped over a hazard that should not have been there. Our Glendale slip and fall attorneys can investigate where your accident happened to determine its cause and who is liable for it.

Common causes of slip/trip and fall accidents include:

  • Uplifted carpets
  • Slippery or wet tile floors
  • Missing handrails near steps
  • Dimly lit walkways
  • Loose cables
  • Cracked concrete or sidewalks

When Should Property Hazards Be Addressed?

A key component of a slip and fall accident claim is whether or not the proprietor should have reasonably corrected the hazard before a visitor encountered it. What is “reasonable” is open to some interpretation, though.

For example, if a shopper spilled some juice right next to you and you slipped on it as you turned to see what happened, then the grocery store would probably not be liable for your accident. In this example, the proprietor did not reasonably have an opportunity to react to the hazard and mop it up. However, if the spill was unattended for five or so minutes, then your argument would be much stronger because it is reasonable to assume that a grocer would have staff members checking the aisles frequently.

Maximize Your Compensation After a Slip & Fall

Slip and fall accidents can cause terrible injuries, like broken bones, back injuries, and head injuries. You might require extensive hospitalization after what first might have been seen as a relatively harmless fall. Make certain you get the compensation you need to get all the medical care you require by teaming up with our Glendale slip and fall accident attorneys. We can push the opposition to offer a fair settlement or, if needed, take them to court.
