Decades of Experience Practicing Premises Liability Law
Premises liability laws are designed to protect individuals hurt on other people's property due to unsafe or dangerous conditions.
Examples of extenuating factors that could cause a slip and fall accident include, but are not limited to:
- Wet floors
- Rotten or defective floorboards
- Snowy / icy sidewalks
- Cluttered pathways
- Broken stairs
- Missing railings
- Unattended spills
- Slanted floors
Am I entitled to compensation after a slip and fall accident?
In order to demonstrate your right to compensation it must be proven that the owner of the property where the accident occurred:
- Was aware of the problem OR should have been aware of the problem
- Did not take the steps necessary to remove or remedy the hazard
If both of the above are true, you could be entitled to compensation. The important thing is to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. In California, the statute of limitations, or deadline, for taking legal action regarding a personal injury is two years from the date of the injury. Don't be afraid to protect your future and your rights.
