Autumn leaves are a beautiful and picturesque sight. However, they can pose a dangerous and often unforeseen risk. Not often do we look at beautiful fall foliage and think of dangerous slip and fall accidents, but as a responsible business owner, it becomes essential to consider all potential risks to our patrons and employees. Slippery fall leaves are one of those risks to you, your business, employees and patrons. Autumn leaves, especially those left for long time periods on your property, accumulating in your parking areas, become soaked in the drenching autumn rains. The rain causes the unmoved, unkempt leaves to become extremely wet, heavy and slippery. Wet, slippery leaves on the ground pose as much of a dangerous hazard as ice on the ground does. Leaves that are in your business’s parking lots and parking areas are often carried inside your business by foot traffic in and out of your business, where the fall risk is now not only outside, but inside your business as well. Business owners and property owners are responsible for keeping patrons and employees safe and protected from injury and accidents–including those which can be caused by fallen leaves in an unkept parking lot or those that have been tracked into the entry way, or other areas of your establishment. The CDC has found that one out of every five falls causes a serious injury, including broken bones or even head injuries. Businesses are already susceptible to slip and fall litigation and need to insure they take extra preventative initiatives to not end up entangled in a costly litigation situation.
