Inadequate Lighting Is A Leading Cause Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Over 70 percent of slip and fall accidents are the result of dangerous conditions and hazardous environments. Frequently, inadequate lighting preventing you from seeing a danger is the root cause of a fall. Inadequate lighting, particularly around steps, inclines or declines, wet/slippery flooring, and in places cluttered with objects and obstructions, often leads to a slip and fall accident.

The Standard Of Care Requires Adequate Lighting

Pursuant to Massachusetts law, reasonable care in the management and maintenance of premises must be taken to prevent injuries. This includes implementing adequate lighting in all areas of the premises, including near stairs. Property owners have the responsibility of inspecting their property to ensure all areas of potential danger are properly lit and hazards are visible, known, and marked.

What Do I Need To Prove If I Was Injured Due To Poor Lighting?

Slip-and-fall victims must show that the property owner knew or should have known about the unreasonably dangerous condition. Further, it must be shown that despite their knowledge or reasonably expected knowledge, the property owner failed to correct the inadequate lighting or failed to satisfactorily warn about it.
