Victims of Fort Lauderdale slip and fall injury accidents are all too familiar with how seriously one can be injured.
People can trip due to a variety of conditions and circumstances, such as: 1) deviations in the elevation of the flooring; 2) due to differentiations in the height of a series of steps; 3) due to foreign substances on the flooring or staircase; 4) due to inappropriate elevations in ramps; 5) due to the surface of the flooring being inherently slippery or lacking the appropriate co-efficiency of friction; 6) due to hidden or trap-like conditions such as a inconspicuous depression in a grassy area; 7) while performing exercise routines such as by falling while using a treadmill or attempting to complete continuous steps onto a platform; 8) while participating in sporting activities; 9) or for simply no good cause.
Examples of each of the above are as follows: 1) a fall caused by an inordinately raised paver in a walkway created from concrete sand based pavers or stones; 2) most municipalities and counties throughout South Florida, and in particular Fort Lauderdale, Miami-Dade, Broward County, Weston, Tamarac, Sunrise, just to name a few, have specific building codes, which require the height of each step in a staircase or stairway or movie theater or in most buildings and homes to be the same height as the preceding or following step. The purpose for this is that when we are negotiating a staircase our mind automatically anticipates the following step to be precisely at the same height as the one we just left. (To be continued)
