Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents may account for serious injuries, however most of them can be prevented by taking precautions to prevent them. Below are some common causes of slip and fall accidents.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

1. Wet floors: Surfaces that are slippery because of water or other liquids result in slip and fall related injuries.

2. Clutter: Unnecessary clutter and debris, or packages in a walkway can obstruct the pathway causing a person to trip.

3. Uneven surfaces: Uneven floors, steps or broken pavements cause accidents on a regular basis.

4. Weather conditions: Bad weather conditions such as rain and ice and snow result in many outdoor slip and fall injuries.

5. Inadequate lighting: When a path is not well lit people cannot see potential hazards, which may cause injury by a slip or fall.

Other causes of slip and fall accidents can be attributed to personal conduct and limitations such as poor vision, loss of balance, wearing poor footwear, etc.
