What Causes Slip & Fall Accidents?

A slip-and-fall accident is a type of premises liability claim resulting from negligence by property owners, building managers, and related parties in charge of third-party premises. Slips, trips, and falls can occur for a variety of reasons.Common causes include:

  • Icy walkways
  • Torn carpeting
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Faulty railing on stairways
  • Loose cables or electrical wiring
  • Malfunctioning elevators or escalators
  • Wet or slick floors without adequate signage

Common Types of Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere and result in a range of serious injuries, from broken bones to concussions to spinal cord injuries. Common types of slip-and-fall accidents include:

  • Negligent security: If you were injured on third-party premises due to lax security or inadequate safety measures, you may have grounds for a claim.
  • Elevator and escalator accidents: If you slip, trip, or fall on an elevator or escalator that wasn't properly maintained or repaired, you may be entitled to compensation.
  • Sidewalk and parking lot accidents: Poorly maintained sidewalks, driveways, curbs, ramps, and garages can result in harmful falls.
  • Restaurant, hotel, and retail accidents: Premises liability claims can result from inadequate lighting, wet floors, improperly secured handrails, and other hazards in commercial settings and businesses.
  • Swimming pool accidents: Slip-and-fall accidents can happen in and around swimming pools due to hazardous conditions, defective equipment, or lack of supervision.

Who Is Liable in a Slip & Fall Accident?

When slip-and-fall accidents are caused by negligence, injured parties may be entitled to seek compensation in court to cover financial and non-financial losses, such as medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages. Under Texas premises liability law, various parties can be liable for slip-and-fall injuries, such as:

  • Property owners: Often, the property owner or manager of the premises where the accident occurred is liable for slip-and-fall injuries.
  • Employees or security guards: In some cases, an employee or security guard may also be held accountable if they were on duty when the accident occurred.
  • Third-party vendors: If the accident was caused by a third-party vendor hired to perform work on the property, such as cleaning or maintenance services, they may be liable for any injuries that result from their negligence.
