Common causes of slip and fall injuries

January 22, 2010

You’re walking down the street when a crack in the sidewalk causes you to trip and fall. You’re browsing the aisles at your local grocery store when water on the floor causes you to slip and fall. These are both examples of the types of hazardous conditions that can cause what’s known in legal terms as a “slip and fall” injury.

Any number of dangerous conditions can cause a slip and fall injury, but there are certain common causes that Texas personal injury lawyers regularly encounter. These include:

  • Slippery substances, such as grease or ice
  • Lack of lighting
  • Poor lighting
  • Lack of handrails on stairways
  • Uneven walking surfaces
  • Cracked walking surfaces
  • Holes in walking surfaces
  • Loose tiles

If you have been injured after a slip and fall accident caused by a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, it is in your best interest to seek the counsel of an experienced Texas personal injury attorney.
