Helping You Understand Liability For Your Bay Area Slip And Fall

Slip, trip and fall cases are some of the most commonly filed premises liability lawsuits in the state of California. The can occur virtually anywhere and often happen because of:

  • Missing or worn barriers
  • No handrails on stairs
  • Poor or improper lighting
  • Lack of signage
  • Improper maintenance of a property

Proving Liability For Your Injuries

The law regarding premise liability is complex. To hold a party legally at fault for your slip-, trip-and-fall injuries the following must have occurred:

  • The owner or caretaker of the property knew of the danger but did not properly clean, address or warn visitors of the danger.
  • The owner failed to reasonably maintain the property.
  • The owner caused the dangerous situation and did not address or fix the danger.

Of course, each situation is different and the specifics of your case will determine the overall outcome of your lawsuit.

For this reason, it is very important that you contact a trusted and experienced personal injury lawyer to handle your case.
