Slip and fall accidents are considered “premise liability cases”. Many times, these cases are caused when a property owner, tenant, and/or business is negligent in the maintenance, repair and upkeep of the property where the injury occurred. California has laws that require landowners to maintain their property so that it does not present an unreasonable risk of harm to its guests. These laws pertain to landowners, business owners and homeowners.
The owners owe a duty to all persons who use their premises. The duty is to exercise reasonable care to avoid an unreasonable risk of harm. Examples include utilizing reasonable care to keep aisles, passageways, and floors in a reasonably safe condition. This duty also includes reasonable efforts to keep the premises free of any hazardous conditions which could reasonably give rise to damages. If you are injured because a property owner or business establishment fails to provide a safe environment, you may have a claim for damages incurred due to your injury including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If you are involved in a slip and fall accident, you should:
- Take pictures of the scene and any visible injuries;
- If someone witnessed the accident, get their name and contact information;
- Save any clothing/footwear you were wearing at the time of the accident;
- Seek medical attention;
- Immediately contact an attorney before providing an insurance adjuster a recorded statement of the incident;
- Demand that an incident report be taken
According to the National Safety Council, slip and fall accidents are the single largest cause of emergency room visits. When it comes to slip and fall accidents, we must prove the owner of the property was negligent. In order to build a strong case, we must show that the following occurred:
- The condition of the property was dangerous
- The owner knew, or should have known, about the property’s condition
- The owner had a reasonable amount of time to fix the condition of the property
