Falls are consistently the leading cause of injury-producing accidents.
They account for more than 1 million injuries each year in the United States.
Why is the cause of so many of these falls?
Dangerous & Hazardous conditions.
Dangerous conditions such as torn carpeting, changes in flooring, poor lighting, narrow stairs, or a wet floor can cause someone to slip and hurt him or herself inside a building.
Other instances of slip and fall accidents can occur when people trip on broken or cracked public sidewalks, or trip and fall on stairs or escalators.
In addition, a slip and fall case might arise when someone slips or trips and falls because of rain, ice, snow or a hidden hazard, such as a pothole in the ground.
There is no precise way to determine when someone else is legally responsible for your injuries if you slip or trip.
Each case turns on whether the property owner acted carefully so that slipping or tripping was not likely to happen, and whether you were careless in not seeing or avoiding the condition that caused the accident.
