How do slip and fall incidents occur in Dallas?

Property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe for those who have a right to be there. This includes ensuring that there are no slip and fall risks that could cause harm. Unfortunately, we know that slip and fall incidents cause serious injuries. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, approximately one million people have to seek treatment in emergency rooms for injuries caused by slip and fall incidents every year.

There are various reasons that slip and fall incidents occur. This can include:

  • Wet or uneven walking surfaces: The most common cause slip and fall accidents revolve around issues with the areas that patrons walk on. This can include:
    • Recently mopped or waxed floors
    • Moisture collection on the floor
    • Cluttered floors
    • Loose mats
    • Loose floorboards
    • Loose pavement or parking lot potholes
    • Defective or broken sidewalks
    • Torn carpeting
    • Low-lying cords
    • Poorly maintained staircases
  • Weather conditions: Poor weather, such as rainy conditions, can lead to hazardous situations on a person’s property, particularly around entryways. Property owners have a duty to ensure that they properly warn patrons of any wet floor hazards and that all proper steps are taken to keep the floors dry.
  • Improper staff training: When slip and fall incidents happen, it is often because employees are not properly trained to recognize and remedy slip and fall hazards.
  • Unsafe workplace conditions: Employers are responsible for providing safe working conditions for every employee. However, there are many industries that pose high risks for slip and fall incidents, particularly the construction industry.
