Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Peabody, MA

Most slip and fall accidents occur in facilities with high pedestrian traffic, including:

  • Crowded airports, where other distracted travelers can cause you to fall.
  • Motels and hotels, where cleaning carts and dirty dishes can block hallways and luggage on the lobby floor can present a hazard.
  • Shopping centers, where the floor space is large and hard to keep clean, dry, and free of small objects that can throw you off balance.
  • Grocery stores and restaurants, where food and liquids are often left on the floor, and where wet tile floors in public restrooms are very slippery.

Negligence Is Failure to Remove Hazards

By law, private property or business owners must take reasonable actions to prevent accidents by maintaining their property, which includes removing hazards that could trip unsuspecting visitors. If they fail to do so, they are deemed to be negligent in their responsibility to keep the public safe.

Some things your slip and fall lawyer in Peabody, MA will investigate about your slip and fall accident include:

  • Whether parking lots, curbs, steps, and sidewalk surfaces were maintained and free of cracked cement, potholes, unmarked dips, or sudden drops in elevation
  • If ice was allowed to accumulate on a walkway or staircase
  • Whether any automatic doors were functioning properly
  • If the lighting was adequate
  • If a small object or slippery liquid was left on the floor
  • Whether warning signs were displayed

If these or other elements contributed to your slip and fall accident, we may be able to help you pursue damages through a premises liability claim.
