Slip-and-fall accidents: Where does the responsibility lie?

Owners of businesses, such as restaurants and grocery stores, have a responsibility to protect their clients and keep them safe from injury. Unfortunately not all owners make sure that their premises are safe. Slip-and-fall accidents are not uncommon and customers often suffer more serious injuries than most people think.  

Our personal injury attorneys are experienced in trip-and-fall as well as slip-and-fall accidents in California. With more than 30 years' experience, we are ideally situated to evaluate each individual case. Victims are entitled to compensation when the gathered evidence documents that the negligence of another party or parties was responsible for the injuries suffered.

These types of accidents can happen in a variety of manners. Some fall after slipping on wet surfaces due to a failure to clean up product spills, or liquids, on floors. Others may trip over broken surfaces in parking areas or on sidewalks. Still other possible dangers are uneven pavements, piles of rubbish and potholes. Another possible threat concerns mats that roll up and are not properly straightened.

Customers are not necessarily the only ones entitled to pursue claims for compensation after a fall. Employees and others lawfully on the property are equally entitled to protection against unsafe premises. An employee who has been the victim of a trip-and-fall accident, or who slipped and fell at work, is typically entitled to workers' compensation benefits to cover medical costs and lost wages. If the accident was caused by the gross negligence of the employer, or a third party was to blame, the worker may have grounds for a separate personal injury claim in the California civil justice system.  

Our California law firm is ideally situated to deal with workers' compensation claims and personal injury cases. We are committed to representing the best interests of our clients, giving them the time needed to recuperate from injuries while we focus on pursuing their claims for recovery of financial losses.
