Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
In some cases, a slip and fall may be the result of general clumsiness or a genuinely blameless accident. However, far too often, slip and falls are caused by the negligence of property owners.
Under premises liability law, property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably safe for anyone who lawfully enters the property. When property owners fail to address, fix, or warn of dangerous property conditions, others can slip, trip, fall, and be seriously hurt.
Examples of dangerous property conditions that often lead to slip and fall accidents include:
- Wet, slippery floors
- Torn or ripped carpeting
- Uneven floors
- Defective sidewalks
- Open trenches, holes, and ditches
- Uneven pavement or asphalt
- Spilled merchandise
- Unmarked hazards
- Cluttered and obstructed walkways
- Inadequate signage
- Poor, insufficient lighting
- Unsafe stairs/steps
- Lack of or broken hand rails
Any of these and other conditions can cause a person to slip and fall, leading to serious injuries and lasting damages. Our firm can help you seek fair compensation for your damages.
Common Slip & Fall Injuries
Anyone can slip and fall as a result of dangerous property conditions—and anyone can suffer devastating, even catastrophic injuries as a result. While some slip and fall accidents result in only minor injuries, others cause lasting harm to victims. If you slip and fall, it’s important that you seek medical attention right away even if you believe you aren’t seriously injured. Some injuries may take hours or days to appear.
Slip and fall accidents commonly result in:
- Bruises, cuts, scrapes, and other superficial injuries
- Broken bones, especially broken wrists and ankles
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Muscle strains and tears
- Dislocated knees, shoulders, and other joints
- Nerve damage
Our North Carolina slip and fall lawyers can help you seek fair compensation for all your damages, including the cost of medical treatment, lost income/wages, disability, pain and suffering, and more.
