High Risk Premises Liability Accident Locations

In the world of premises liability cases, there are so many places where accidents can occur. Unfortunately, there are some common places where slip or trip and falls may occur, putting regular people at risk of serious injuries due to negligence. For individuals to stay safe, knowing exactly where slip and falls can occur and where they are most common can help you protect yourself. Here are some things that you should know about what to expect if something goes wrong.

Retail Stores and Other Shopping Areas

Retail stores may seem like normal, safe places. However, there are times when problems can arise, such as when the floor is mopped and slippery, when rugs at the entrance may be lifted, or when other tripping hazards may be present. probably one of the most common causes of slips and falls in these settings is puddles of liquid that have not been cleaned up or marked with some kind of caution sign. Spills can occur for a number of reasons at these locations be they spilled drinks, spilled liquid products, or puddles caused by a leak of some sort. These are some of the most common types of premises liability cases because they are commonplace for spills and have a high amount of foot traffic. There are many potential dangers that put individuals at serious risk of injuries such as back injuries or even brain injuries caused by a fall.

Hotels and Resorts

There are many potential dangers at hotels, motels, timeshares, and other resorts. This is often due to lack of maintenance, however, there are also the added issues of public pools and spas where individuals may not be aware of the issues. Lifted carpet, broken tubs, and wet floors are all potential dangers at hotels and other types of resorts. These resorts are also home to a host of recreational activities people may engage in on vacation that can inadvertently injury participants when proper care is not taken. This can sometimes be the fault of the property owner and make them liable in a premises liability claim.

Hospitals and Nursing Homes

It’s difficult to think that a place where you go to ensure you’re healthy can be responsible for potential damages. Hospitals and nursing homes are often negligent in their care of patients and residents, allowing for a potential risk of falls. These locations must ensure that proper care is taken to minimize the risk that disabled patients will not fall or injure themselves in another preventable way. This means providing access to those with trouble walking in the form of handrails and ramps as well as ensuring that walkways are clear of dangerous debris.
