Slip and falls are the second leading cause of injuries in the United States, and they account for as many as 19,000 deaths each year. A wet floor or an almost invisible crack can leave a victim in a wheelchair or with a permanent spinal cord injury, while many suffer from a fractured wrist trying to brace for the impact from falling after a slip. Many of these injuries and deaths are caused by a hazardous or dangerous condition on someone else's property. When an injury or death results from a fall that is caused by a dangerous condition on a property, the victim or the victim's family may be entitled to compensation.
Property owners have a duty to keep their premises free from hazards and unsafe conditions for visitors. If the owner of a property breaches that duty then he or she may be held responsible under premises liability. California law requires landlords to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors, and to protect visitors from hazards. The most common type of Los Angeles premises liability case involves slip-n-fall or trip-n-fall accidents, resulting from uneven floor surfaces, poorly marked changes in elevation, wet floors, slippery surfaces, broken sidewalks, uneven elevators and broken steps. An experienced Los Angeles slip and fall attorney can help you determine whether a landlord may be liable for your injuries.
Our experienced Los Angeles slip and fall liability litigation lawyers
understand the complexities of a property owner liability accident case
California law requires the victim of a Los Angeles slip and fall injury accident to prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the hazardous condition that caused the Los Angeles slip and fall accident, and that he failed to remedy it. This requires showing that the landlord had sufficient time to discover the hazard and had an opportunity to repair the dangerous condition or failed to conduct the proper maintenance. Big businesses are not above tampering with evidence, so it is imperative for a lawyer to get involved quickly and ensure the integrity of the evidence is maintained.
