Property owners and businesses are expected to provide people with safe conditions when they visit their property. People have the expectation that floors, stairs, sidewalks, and parking lots are safe to walk on. Trips and falls may happen when walkways contain broken or uneven surfaces, parking lots have dips or potholes, curbs are hidden or damaged, or sidewalks have tree roots protruding through the pavement. Poor lighting and the lack of handrails can also contribute to trip and fall accidents. People can also trip and fall getting on or off or escalators or elevators, as well as moving from different forms of flooring, such as hardwood floors to carpet. Injuries sustained in a trip and fall accident can range from relatively minor, such as a scrape or bruise, to serious or even fatal.
