Liability for New Port Richey Slip, Trip, and Fall AccidentsSlip, trip, and fall accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. However, it is particularly common for them to occur on residential and commercial properties that have not succeeded in maintaining a reasonably safe environment. This neglect may result in the owners being found responsible and at fault for slip, trip and fall situations that ultimately cause brain damage and other injuries.
Prevent a Slip and FallThe best way to prevent a slip and fall accident is through precaution and awareness. Around the home, keep surfaces smooth and free of potential problems such as clutter. Be aware of potential hazards before they become the cause of accidents. Make everyone in the household aware of the critical areas such as stairs, bathtubs, gardens, kitchen, and garage. Check that you have adequate indoor and outdoor lighting. Have everyone participate in a monthly safety check of home and property. On the street be cautious when weather conditions make walking dangerous during rain or strong winds. In public places like restaurants, grocery stores, or retail establishments, watch out for wet floors or items that may have dropped, like that banana peel or a simple napkin. Literally anything out of place can be a potential hazard. Be alert for high curbs in parking lots, uneven areas of sidewalks, and loose rugs. These are common traps waiting to cause a slip and fall accident to anyone who doesn't keep focused on where they are and what they're doing. Always hold onto the handrail when climbing or descending stairs since the higher the distance of the fall, the more severe damage it caused.
