controller who permitted a slip or trip hazard to exist on their property.

receive proper and full compensation for any injuries, as the consequences
of your slip and fall could be as severe as a

How Slip and Fall Accidents Occur
No one intends to cause a welcome guest or visitor to suffer a slip and
fall accident, and yet commonplace negligence and lack of safety precautions
cause these accidents regularly.
Hazards around homes, offices, and retail locations that can cause slips
and falls include:
- Uneven or lifted carpeting
- Slippery tiles
- Uncleaned wet spots
- Steps with no handrails
- Loose electric cables
- Fragile wooden flooring
In Arizona State, anyone who owns or controls a piece of property has an
inherent and unshakable duty to ensure that anyone who is openly welcomed
onto said property is safe. If there are any hazards that could cause
injury present, they must be remedied within a reasonable amount of time.
Simply warning a guest that there is a puddle of water in the bathroom
is not enough to escape liability; they must do something about it to
make the area safe again.
Consequences of Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most traumatic types of injuries
that can happen without a moment’s notice and almost anywhere. Young
children and elders are especially susceptible to the consequences and
must always be given proper supervision in areas where a trip hazard may
exist. All it takes is one tumble to cause serious injury.
Injuries related to slip and fall accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Broken bones
