Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents and Subsequent Injuries
If a fall is caused by unsafe conditions the property occupier could have avoided the injured person may be entitled to compensation. The property occupier has a duty to keep you reasonably safe, and much like injuries at public events, most injuries are foreseeable. It’s important that the property occupier act reasonably to ensure the safety of everyone on the property.
Some common causes of Slip-and-Falls are:
- Slippery floors that haven’t been properly maintained
- Icy or hazardous stairs
- Icy or hazardous sidewalks
- Impeded walkways

Ever wonder why stores post those “Wet Floor” signs after they’ve mopped an area? It’s because Occupier’s Liability laws demand that those who manage a property exercise due diligence to ensure the safety of their visitors. Often, victims of slip-and-falls will think they’re responsible for the accident but if the occupier has been negligent in their duty of care to their visitors, the injured person deserves compensation for their injury.
