Causes of Commercial Slip And Fall Accidents
From big box stores to restaurants, there are thousands of commercial slip and fall accidents at all types of businesses each year. Owners, managers and employees of any commercial business have a legal obligation to regularly inspect the floors, check merchandise displays, adequately remove ice and snow and take all reasonable precautions for the safety of customers and workers.
Spills, leaky refrigeration systems, product left on the floor, loose rugs and other hazards can easily cause slip and fall or trip and fall accidents. Inadequate lighting and ice or snow on sidewalks, walkways and parking lots are also often the culprit of slip and fall accidents. At hotels, it is not uncommon for guests or visitors to slip in areas near the pool, gym or other slippery spots that should be regularly monitored by hotel employees and managers.
