A slip and fall can happen anywhere, and the injuries are often a lot more severe than the classic banana-peel gag might suggest. Frequently, lawsuits in these cases arise out of hotels, retail stores, and residential communities.
There’s a new article making its way around the condominium management industry and it reveals property owners’ own concern about their exposure to slip and fall liability.
Habitat Magazine is a trade publication for the owners and decision-makers responsible for co-ops, condominiums, and commercial facilities. They recently listed the five slip and fall sites/conditions that their readers should be most concerned about:
- Uneven sidewalks
- Slippery snow and ice accumulations
- Wet floors
- Dangerous floor coverings / indoor tripping hazards
- Slippery pool areas
Indeed, these are all common problem areas for property owners who fail to maintain safe premises for their residents, visitors, or customers.
We applaud decision-makers like those in the Habitat piece who are taking efforts to protect the innocent people they serve. No one should end up in a hospital with a mountain of medical bills because a commercial property was poorly maintained.
