Slip and Fall Lawyer
If You Were Injured in a Fall, Then We Can Help
Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their property safe and free of defects to help avoid slip and fall accidents. According to California State law, when a person is injured on another person’s property, the property owner may be held liable. All property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property is free from hazardous conditions, and for making sure that the general public is aware of any dangerous conditions that may exist. If a landowner fails to maintain his/her property and prevent hazardous conditions, and another person is injured while on the property, the property owner may be liable for damages to the injured party.
Slip and fall accidents are covered by negligence law and deal with the concept of premises liability. Property owners have a duty to see that their property is safe. This includes ensuring that the building has no structural defects that could cause an accident, both inside and out. Structural defects can include:
- Construction defects and code violations
- Poor lighting
- Cracks or holes in sidewalks or parking lots
- Broken steps
- Missing or broken hand railings
- Loose floor mats
- Slick floors with no warning sign
- Water on the floor
