Hazards that Cause Slips, Trips & Falls
As with any personal injury action, the burden of proof lies on the plaintiff’s shoulders. This means that the injured party (or their representative) must prove fault and the value of their claim. With a slip and fall case, this typically involves identifying the hazard that caused the accident and showing how the property owner should have prevented, repaired, or warned of it.
The following are examples of hazards that may cause slips, trips, and falls:
- Inadequate lighting
- Defective carpeting or other flooring
- Uneven walkways
- Objects in walkways
- Elevator uneven with the floor
- Missing or defective stairs or handrails
- Standing water or other spills
- Defective ladders or scaffolding
- Slippery flooring
By carefully investigating your case and analyzing the evidence at hand, we can work to build a strong case against the negligent property owner or other responsible party.
