What Are Common Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents?

Premises Liability
April 4, 2018

Lee Law Firm , LLC

When residents in New Jersey like you hit the town, you expect to visit safe public places. Unfortunately, safety isn’t something you’ll get every single time. Lee Law Firm, LLC, will be here to lend a helping hand if you ever find yourself suffering due to the negligence of a public property owner.

Slip-and-fall accidents can involve more than just wet floors, which are one of the most popular examples. They don’t even have to occur indoors. If you trip on broken or loose pavement in a parking lot, that qualifies as a potential slip-and-fall case. Another possible scenario involves construction defects in the walkways, guard rails, or steps that lead to you harming yourself.

Poor lighting is another contributor to slip-and-fall accidents. Have you ever been to a poorly-lit parking lot at night? It becomes nearly impossible to see the ground, which can easily result in you tripping over foreign objects or cracks that you weren’t able to see.

Weather hazards are also a big issue. It’s the job of the property owner to make sure people like you can access their buildings safely. If they don’t mop up water from rain, lay down salt for ice, or put up the appropriate warnings, then they aren’t fulfilling their duty.

Slip-and-fall accidents can leave you dealing with unprecedented pain and financial suffering, but you don’t have to struggle through it alone. Visit our web page on premise liability to learn more about what you can do to seek compensation for your accident.
