Slip and Fall Accident on a Speed Bump (Part B) - How Are Speed Bumps A Slip And Fall Hazard?

The spherical shape of speed bumps can be quite dangerous for pedestrians.  When a pedestrian steps on the spherical part of a speed bump, he can slip and fall.

Many times, when the speed bumps are installed, they have an anti-slip coating on them.  However, over time, the coating can come off due to rain, snow, or the high volume of foot and car traffic going over it.  It is not enough for speed bumps to have slip resistant coating when installed, they also need to be maintained and recoated with slip resistant material.

If speed bumps are going to be installed in places with high pedestrian traffic, the following things should be done to ensure the safety of pedestrians:

  • Put a slip resistant coating on the speed bumps.
  • Put warnings signs to alert pedestrians and motorists.

What To Do After Falling On A Speed Bump

It is important to seek medical attention for your injuries from your fall. Because of the multiple parties that may be responsible for your injuries, it is also important to talk to an experienced slip and fall accident lawyer soon after your fall.  The lawyer can set up an inspection with an expert to see whether the speed bump lacked slip resistant coating.
