Seriously debilitating injuries arise from people slipping or tripping on wet, slick or greasy surfaces as well as unexpected holes in sidewalks.
These accidents can happen anywhere, in grocery stores, restaurants, office buildings and shopping malls, or outside in parking lots or on sidewalks. These injuries may be due to negligence on the part of private property owners or the city entities responsible for maintaining public areas.
Over half of all slip and fall accidents are caused by hazardous walking surfaces such as:
- Wet or uneven Surfaces.
- Cluttered floors
- Loose floorboards
- Defective sidewalks
- Parking lot potholes
- Poorly-constructed or unsafe staircases
- Torn carpeting
- Recently mopped or waxed floors
