Just because you suffer a slip-and-fall does not necessarily mean you will be injured. Conversely, there is always a possibility that this could cause a serious injury that requires immediate medical attention.
The problem with a slip-and-fall accident is that you never see it coming. One second you are walking along, minding your own business on your way to your destination. The next second you've fallen and realize that you're injured.
There are many causes of slip-and-fall accidents, with some of the most common including:
-- The accumulation of ice and/or snow, such as in a parking lot.
-- Defective walkways and stairs.
-- Missing railing.
-- Wrinkled entry mat.
-- Inadequate use of lighting, such as in a hallway or parking lot.
-- Foreign substance of debris on the floor.
Even though you may find it hard to believe that people are injured in slip-and-fall accidents, this can happen to anyone at any time.
