What are the common causes of slip and fall accidents?

The most common causes of slip and fall accidents include wet and uneven surfaces. The wetness may be due to the rain, or it may be due to recent waxing or mopping of the floor. There may also be uneven surfaces due to things like loose floorboards or torn carpeting. Those are things that should be maintained by the premises owner and if they're not properly maintained then a customer may have a claim against the store owner.
