Hair salon owner blamed for fall on broken pavement

California residents who have never suffered a slip\-and\-fall accident will be surprised at the severity of the injuries such an incident can cause. Premises owners are responsible for the maintenance of their properties to protect consumers from slipping or tripping on slippery or uneven walkways. This includes the area outside the business entrance and in the parking lot. A client of a hair salon in another state recently filed a premises liability lawsuit after an alleged trip-and-fall accident on a broken pavement.

According to court documents, the plaintiff contends she tripped on an uneven, raised area of the pavement as she exited the hair salon at which she was a client. The woman accuses the defendant of negligence in the failure to maintain the pavement and repair the damaged area timely. She alleges that the defendant failed to ensure hazard-free premises that would not threaten the safety of patrons.

The complaint states that the plaintiff fell to her knees and tried to break the fall with her hands. This caused severe damage to both her wrists and knees. Furthermore, the plaintiff claims to have undergone some surgical procedures, with more procedures planned for the future. She alleges she was left with reduced mobility, permanent scarring and deformity. The damages she seeks cover medical and emotional losses along with legal costs and interest.

Any victim of a fall on a broken pavement or another neglected area on the premises of a California store owner may have grounds to file a premises liability claim in a civil court. Establishing negligence typically forms the basis of such lawsuits, and experienced legal counsel can help with this challenging task. An attorney can also provide support and guidance throughout ensuing legal proceedings with the goal of securing a monetary judgment to cover damages.
