Even worse, however, they can cause great consequences, resulting in both short-term injuries and long-term side effects.

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.

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.
