Slip & Fall Accidents

Talk to Trusted Greenville Premises Liability Attorneys

While a spilled drink on the floor might not seem like a huge problem, someone who slips and falls because of it will have a different opinion. Slip and falls cause around 1 million emergency room visits a year. Falls were also the 3rd leading cause of unintentional deaths in 2014, accounting for almost 32,000 fatalities. It is up to the owner of every facility, therefore, to ensure these incidents happen as little as possible.

What Are the Most Common Causes?

While people can’t always predict how the weather will affect traction, some methods to prevent slip and fall accidents are actually quite simple. Here are a few problems that often lead to slips and falls:

  • Wet or recently waxed floors
  • Loose floorboards
  • Clutter on the floors
  • Broken sidewalk
  • Parking lot potholes
  • Poorly constructed staircases
  • Torn carpets

Many of these are cases of neglect. For example, a building owner who refuses to repave a parking lot. While it may save them the expense of renewing the pavement, it might cost them later if a person catches their footwear in a pothole and breaks a leg or an ankle.
