In a city that’s filled with numerous stores, malls and entertainment venues, it’s almost inevitable that someone will slip and fall in a public place somewhere in Los Angeles.
Although slipping and falling might seem like no big deal, the truth is a slip and fall injury can cause injuries that make it difficult to go to work or interfere with your ability to perform every day functions. Common injuries affect the back, shoulders, ankles, knees, elbows and hips.
If this has happened to you, it’s imperative to talk to a Los Angeles slip and fall lawyer right away.
Under California law, property owners are legally responsible for ensuring that their property is reasonably safe and for warning people of potential dangers. If a property owner fails to do so and someone gets hurt, the property owner could be held liable for financial damages. This is known as premises liability.
People slip, trip and fall for various reasons, but the following are common conditions that lead to slips, trips and falls:
- Torn carpet
- Slippery floors
- Spilled liquids
- Unstable ladders
- Uneven walkways
- Hazardous stairways
- Cracks in the floor or sidewalk
To find out whether you have a case, the first step is to talk to a lawyer. A slip and fall lawyer can determine:
- Whether the property owner was negligent in keeping his/her property reasonably safe
- Whether the property owner failed to properly maintain the property or to repair any hazards
- Whether the property owner failed to properly warn others of any dangers
With us, you can find out if you have a case right over the phone. There’s no obligation, and your first consultation is free.
