Where Slip and Falls Can Occur
Slips and trips most often occur in areas with uneven ground or areas where objects obstruct a path or walkway. Ramps, cluttered hallways, unstable work surfaces, ladders, or stairs are all common places for premises liability accidents. Accidents can happen on public or private property, in places like grocery stores, movie theaters, government buildings, the homes of friends or neighbors, or even in malls or parking lots. Although the owner or non-owner resident has a duty to keep their property safe for visitors or customers, slip and falls are usually the result of poorly designed or maintained properties.
