While slip and falls can bruise egos, in more serious accidents, they can break bones and cause permanent damage and injuries. These impacts can be enough on their own to try to deal with, but when it comes to light that a serious slip and fall accident could have been prevented if another party had been more careful (instead of negligent), it can be all the more difficult for victims to pick up the pieces after these accidents.

Q – What kind of negligence can cause slip and fall accidents?
A – There are various forms of negligence that can contribute to slip and fall accidents, with some of the more common examples including (but not being limited to) property owners’ and/or landlords’:
- Failure to clean up spills, leaks or other debris that can contribute to slip and falls
- Failure to warn people about the risks or dangers on their property (like through posting signs)
- Failure to block off dangerous or risky areas on their property.
Here, we also want to point out that, even if a “responsible party” (such as a property owner or landlord) didn’t know about some risk or danger at his property, that party can still be liable if he should have known about the risk or danger because a “reasonable” party in the same (or a similar) situation would have been aware of it.
