While many people think slip and fall accidents mostly happen during the winter due to snowy and icy conditions, these accidents can happen year-round, particularly on dangerous properties. When property owners do not maintain their premises properly, such as by mopping wet floors or fixing leaks, and a tenant or visitor is injured as a result, the property owner may be held liable for damages.

Learn some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents on properties so you can reduce your chances of an injury.

SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS ON PROPERTIES

Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain safe conditions on their premises for legal tenants and visitors. When property owners fail in this duty, they may be held liable for damages in the event of a subsequent accident.

As such, property owners are required to ensure there are no hazards on their premises that may lead to a slip and fall accident. These hazards include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Wet floors
  • Ice and snow
  • Debris in walkways
  • Defective stairwells
  • Defective elevators and escalators
  • Poor lighting
