Slip & Fall Injury
Slip and fall accidents are among the most common. Often the person injured is embarrassed or brushes off the affect at the scene only later to realize there is a real injury. When possible it is important to document the accident and inform responsible parties quickly. California law imposes a duty on property owners to keep their property maintained, hazard free, and safe. Property owners in California have a duty to warn visitors or potential visitors of dangerous conditions on the property. Where property owners fail to adhere to these duties and a s result a person slips, falls, or is otherwise injured on the property, the property owner is typically liable.
Property owners and businesses that invite patrons to the property often fail to maintain the property, warn of hazards, or timely eliminate hazards. Premises liability is not only tripping on a hazard. It may include injuries resulting from: slips, falls, trips, falling debris and other objects, harm due to insufficient security protection, dog bites, hazardous material exposure, unreasonably slippery surfaces, fires, injury due to poor lighting, uneven concrete, uncleaned spills and leaks, swimming pool and fountain related drownings and incidents, injuries due to poorly maintained trees and scrubs, and many others.
Most businesses and many individuals have insurance coverage for premises liability and slip and fall accidents. While insurance ought to make an accident victim feel secure that he/she will be compensated and have their bills paid in the event of an accident, it is typical for insurance companies to look for ways to avoid paying on claims or seek to minimize or trivialize the injury and the consequences of the injury.
