When many people think about slip and fall accidents, they picture someone slipping and sliding on snowy or icy sidewalks. However, contrary to popular belief, slip and fall accidents don’t only happen outside. The home is a common place for slip and fall accidents to occur.
Below, our Kansas City and Topeka personal injury attorneys discuss common slip and fall accidents in the home.
Common Slip and Fall Hazards
Slip and fall accidents may happen on any property that is not maintained the way that it should be, and these accidents often result in serious head or back injuries.
Common slip and fall hazards on dangerous properties include, but are not limited to, the following:
Uneven stairs or broken handrails
Unsecured mats or rugs
Exposed wires or cords
Poorly lit hallways
If you have suffered a slip and fall accident due to a hazardous condition on a property owned by someone else, you can demonstrate the property owner failed to exercise reasonable care with the following:
The owner caused the hazard which instigated your accident.
The owner knew about the hazard but did not remove it.
The owner should have known about the hazard like any other reasonable person.
