What Must You Prove in a Slip & Fall Case in California?

A slip and fall accident is a type of premises liability case. It can be brought against any kind of property owner or inhabitant, including a private homeowner, store or other business or a local, state or federal government.

To recoup damages in an California slip and fall claim, you typically must demonstrate:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable risk of injury to you. Hazards that could cause someone to slip, trip and fall include:
  • Broken or uneven pavement on sidewalks or in parking lots
  • Snowy, icy or wet floors and walkways
  • Ripped, torn or loose rugs and carpets
  • Liquids spilled on floors
  • Broken or uneven stairs
  • Poor lighting in corridors, stairwells, or outside walkways
  • Holes in the ground or objects sticking out of the ground
  • Broken, missing or loose handrails
  • Malfunctioning escalators or elevators
  • The property owner knew or, in the exercise of normal care, should have known of both the condition and injury risk. Essentially, the owner or inhabitant had "actual notice" based on seeing the slip and fall hazard or creating the risk or "constructive notice" based on the risk existing long enough that the owner or occupier should have seen it.
  • The property owner could have reasonably anticipated that you would not have discovered or recognized the danger or would fail to protect yourself against the danger. For instance, you would not have known that an office building lobby was slippery since it had just been mopped.
  • The property owner failed to take reasonable steps to protect you by either fixing the hazard or providing you an adequate warning about it.
  • As a result of the property owner's carelessness, you sustained injuries.

As you consider whether you have the power to bring a slip and fall claim, you will need to ask yourself a number of vital questions, including:

  • If you tripped or slipped, had the dangerous spot been there long enough so that the owner should have known about it?
  • If there once was a good reason for the object to be there yet that reason no longer exists, could the object have been removed?
  • Was there a safer area the object could have been located without much more inconvenience or cost to the property owner?
  • Could a basic barrier have been created or a caution provided to keep you from slipping or tripping?
  • Did insufficient or broken lighting contribute to the accident?

What Compensation Can I Receive for a Slip & Fall Injury?

A slip and fall accident can result in a variety of serious injuries, including bone fractures, soft-tissue damage, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is essential to consult with a law firm that will seek maximum compensation for the harm you have suffered, including:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life

A property owner's insurance company may attempt to place blame on you for your slip and fall accident. For instance, the insurer might allege that you tripped, slipped and fell due to an "open and obvious" hazard that you should have recognized or did something else that was negligent.

In California, you could be barred from recovering anything if you were more than 50 percent responsible for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be decreased by an amount that is proportionate to the percentage of fault attributed to you. Your lawyer from Tim D. Wright, will aggressively oppose any kind of unfounded claims made by a property owner's insurance company as well as work hard to protect your legal rights.
