Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

Trips, slips, and falls can occur anywhere at a construction site, and depending on where you fall, can cause extensive, painful damage.

Common sources of slips, trips, and falls on a construction site include:

  • Cracked or broken asphalt

  • Wet or damp floors or surfaces

  • Spills from sticky materials

  • Worn or frayed floorboards or carpet

  • Loose or rippled carpets

  • Leaks from hazardous chemicals

  • Uneven tiles

  • Broken or cracked stairs

  • Dim or non-existent lighting

  • Loose or raised screws and nails

  • Crowded hallways and aisles

  • Damaged elevators or escalators

  • Loose, broken, or missing railings

  • Debris filling halls and walkways

  • Loose or trailing cables and wires

  • Level changes in ramps or doorways

  • Unsafe or wobbly ladders

Construction sites can be filled with multiple instances of these varied, hazardous conditions. A responsible building owner or manager makes frequent checks of the construction site, ensuring safety for any workers on the location. If managers are careless or ignorant, or simply do not take the time to correct these risks, they are liable to pay reparations for the damage and injuries you receive on account of these threats to your health and wellbeing.

Steps to Take After a Trip and Fall Accident

You may have a right to hold a property owner or establishment liable for their failure to provide a safe environment if you have been injured in a trip and fall accident. In order to do so, you will need to take the proper steps and execute carefully. Here are some helpful tips on how to assist your attorney with your case:

  • Avoid making any statement that could mark you as guilty

  • Collect the names and contact information of property managers

  • Get contact details of any witnesses

  • Take pictures of the scene and injuries

  • Save the shoes and clothing you were wearing at the time

  • Get medical attention

Knowing Your Legal Rights for Damage from Slips, Trips, and Falls

Accidents from falling and tripping at a construction site can create extensive consequences of pain, suffering, and stress for you or your loved ones, and you deserve the right to pursue justice by obtaining full compensation from those responsible. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to claim damages related to past and future medical attention, rehabilitation, and therapy.

You can also gain reparation for reduced wages in being forced to take time from work, as well as future income losses resulting from physical injuries. In addition, you often can seek compensation for the emotional damage of pain, suffering, and stress you have received. In the tragic case that a loved one loses their life due to a construction site fall, family members can pursue compensation for this heartbreaking fatality.
