Slip and fall incidents represent some of the most common types of accidents that result in personal injuries in San Diego and across the United States. Indeed, slip and fall and automobile accidents represent the two most common types of personal injury accidents in the United States, according to the American Bar Association.
Although a slip and fall accident can be caused by a variety of reasons, three types of incidents are most commonplace. A slip and fall accident is commonly the result of a defect in a floor surface, including sidewalk issues. In addition, a slip and fall accident oftentimes occurs because of a liquid negligently spilled and allowed to remain on a floor. Finally, the third of the common causes of a slip and fall accident is some foreign non-liquid object improperly placed or otherwise left on the floor or walkway.
