Slip and Fall Accidents
Common slip and fall accident causes:
- Low objects extending into a walking space or an object intruding into a walk area, such as a misplaced shelf item, can cause a “trip and fall” accident.
- Poor lighting or poor visibility in a walk area can cause missteps which lead to falls.
- Improper handrails or a lack of handrails are not only a cause of falls but also a violation of the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA).
- Unexpected or unmarked changes in floor or ground elevation, torn or insecure carpeting (carpeting that slips easily, is unattached, or wrinkled)
