    Common causes

    Slips and falls are relatively common accidents and may occur when someone simply loses their footing. Common causes of these accidents include:

    • Slippery floors
    • Dangerous stairways
    • Liquids left on the floor
    • Unmarked hazards
    • Poor lighting
    • Uneven surfaces or sidewalks
    • Loose hand railings

    Whatever the cause of your slip and fall accident, if someone's reckless or negligent behavior resulted in your injury, our legal team can vigorously defend your rights and fight for the financial compensation you deserve.

    Take your slip and fall accident seriously

    Many people think of falls as no big deal. In reality, falls are the top cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States, and they can cause other serious injuries like broken bones, internal injuries and back injuries as well. A seemingly minor concussion can lead to a lifetime of consequences, with likewise high lifetime costs.

    That’s why you should see a doctor as soon as possible after a slip or trip and fall accident, even if you feel fine. Getting checked out right away is important to protect your health. It’s also why California law holds property owners responsible for maintaining safe premises, and it’s why you should talk to an experienced attorney about your legal rights and options.

    Understanding your rights

    When slip and fall accidents are caused by negligence on the part of a property owner, the victims may have grounds to file premises liability claims. An attorney at our law offices can talk to you about your legal options in this matter.

    Filing a personal injury case may give you the opportunity to recover significant financial compensation for your injuries, covering medical care, lost earnings, future medical expenses, and a variety of other injuries or damages.

    A slip and fall accident claim will need to be based upon the property owner's liability, such as negligence in maintaining property grounds, conducting routine inspections or posting warning signs regarding hazardous conditions on the property. It may be necessary to recover physical evidence of the hazardous condition that caused your accident as well as additional evidence that proves the property owner knew or reasonably should have known that the hazardous condition was present - and did nothing to repair it or warn you of its presence.
