One of the most common types of personal injury accidents are slip and falls. Slip and fall accidents or trip and fall accidents are also known as premises liability claims. A property owner is generally responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe environment for visitors. Failure to do so can result in a lawsuit brought by the accident victim. A premise liability claim can be filed when a person is injured on someone else’s property because the owner was in some way negligent. The property can be both residential and commercial (such as a retail store or grocery store).
The Dennis Law Group personal injury attorneys handle all types of premises liability claims.
Property owners in California have a legal responsibility to provide a safe environment for guests and customers who set foot on their property. Failure to do so means the property owner can be held liable for damages.
Individuals are often injured in slip and falls when the following conditions are present:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Fallen or dangerously placed merchandise
- Uneven or cracked sidewalks or walkways
- Broken handrails in bathrooms, showers, and stairways
- Exposed holes or ditches on property grounds or floor
- Poorly lit areas
- Falling objects
- Lack of warning signs (pools, hot tubs, saunas, etc.)
