Slip, Trip And Fall Injuries

Slip, Trip and Fall Injury Lawyers

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. They can occur virtually anywhere and often happen because of:

  • Overwaxed floors
  • No handrails or inadequately placed rails on stairs
  • Poor or improper lighting
  • Stairs that are too steep or narrow
  • Lack of warning
  • Improper or insufficient maintenance of a property

PROVING LIABILITY FOR YOUR INJURIES

The law regarding premises liability is complex. To hold a party legally at fault for your slip, trip or fall injuries, the following must be addressed:

  • Did the owner or caretaker of the property know of the danger and not properly clean, address or warn visitors of the danger.
  • Did the owner fail to reasonably maintain the property.
  • Did the owner cause the dangerous situation and 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.
