How Do Most Slip and Falls Occur?
Common slip and fall accidents occur in the grocery store, where items that contain liquid could fall to the floor and be spread throughout the store on the wheels of shopping carts. Or, a simple freezer leak could cause the presence of water on the aisles and create a slippery environment. Apart from the grocery store, some other common causes include ice and snow, ripped or torn carpeting, or missing handrails on stairways, as different environments present different hazards.
