Is this a tripping hazard?

As someone employed in Arizona, you likely don't think of everyday objects when you think "workplace incident". Most people envision freak occurrences involving heavy machinery, high voltages of electricity, fires, and so on. However, some of the most common hazards are things you likely deal with on the daily.

FindLaw specifically examines the hazards that contribute to slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents happen fairly frequently in most workplaces. While these aren't serious incidents in many cases, they have the potential for causing a lot of bodily harm, especially if you end up landing on a hard surface or falling from a height.

Normal, everyday items are often at fault for slip and fall accidents, too. For example, wiring that is not properly secure and stretches from one side of a room to another can easily be tripped over, especially if it is hard to see. Other common hazards include:

  • Wet floors without proper warning signs
  • Carpets or rugs that are not properly secured
  • Sudden drops without warning, such as from one level of a store to another
  • Uneven flooring

These are so common that sometimes, people may not even think to warn for them. However, slipping or falling from a height can result in broken or sprained bones and even possible head trauma depending on whether or not you hit it on the way down.

Have you been injured because of tripping hazards at work? Consider contacting an attorney to learn about what compensation options may be available to you.
