Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents also include situations where people trip over things or step on or into something that they expected to be safe. These are some of the most common causes of these incidents:
- Icy or slippery surfaces
- Standing water from poor water drainage
- Uneven or cracked walkway or sidewalk
- Poorly maintained or non-existent handrail
- Dimly lit walkways
- Damaged staircase
- Debris or obstacles where people are walking
- Holes in the ground
- Torn carpet
- Loose wires, cable or cords
Slip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere, including at work, shopping malls, retail stores, restaurants, someone else’s home, parking lots and parking garages.
These accidents carry a significant risk of serious injury, particularly for children and the elderly who have weaker bones. Victims can suffer concussions and other head injuries, torn ligaments and back injuries.
Slip and fall injuries can prevent you from working or severely limit the number of hours you work every week. These injuries could also result in a variety of medical expenses that you might not be able to afford.
If you think your accident was caused by negligence, contact our Bluffton slip and fall attorneys to see if you can potentially recover compensation to cover your various expenses. We have an extensive track record of achieving successful settlements and verdicts for those who were injured by another party’s negligence.

What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident
At The Nye Law Group, the health and safety of our clients is our number one priority. That is why we advise victims of slip and fall accidents to get medical treatment immediately.
After that, victims should contact our helpful Bluffton slip and fall attorneys to review the incident to see if it may have been caused by negligence. Landlords and property owners are considered negligent if they failed to act as a reasonable property owner would in the same situation.
In other words, property owners could be found negligent if they failed to safely maintain their property or failed to adequately warn visitors to the property about any inherent dangers.
If you have a legitimate claim, our Bluffton premises liability attorneys will go to work investigating the accident and collecting the evidence we need to build a solid case that will give you the best chance at recovering the compensation you are entitled.
We can collect police reports and incident reports from the property owner, security camera footage if available, interview eyewitnesses, take photos of the scene and review medical records. If necessary, we can also consult medical experts to show, in detail, how your injuries were caused by negligence.
Our Bluffton personal injury attorneys will carefully review any settlement offers that we receive, but we will not accept any settlement that provides less compensation than you are owed. If we are unable to settle, we are fully prepared to take your case to trial to achieve the justice and compensation that you deserve.
