What Must You Prove in a Slip and Fall Claim 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 need to demonstrate:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable risk of injury to you. Hazards that might cause a person to slip, trip and fall consist of:
  • Broken or uneven pavement on sidewalks or in parking lots
  • Snowy, icy or wet floors and walkways
  • Ripped, torn or loose rugs and carpeting
  • Liquids spilled on floors
  • Broken or uneven stairways
  • Poor lighting in hallways, stairwells, or outside walkways
  • Holes in the ground or objects sticking out of the ground
  • Broken, missing or loose handrails
  • Defective escalators or elevators
  • The property owner knew or, in the exercise of normal care, should have known of both the condition and injury possibility. Essentially, the owner or occupier had "actual notice" based on seeing the slip and fall risk 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 expected that you would not have discovered or realized the danger or would fail to protect yourself against the risk. For instance, you would not have known that an office building lobby was slippery since it had recently been mopped.
  • The property owner failed to take reasonable steps to protect you by either fixing the hazard or providing you a proper warning regarding it.
  • As a result of the property owner's negligence, you suffered injuries.

As you contemplate whether you have the ability to bring a slip and fall case, you will need to ask yourself a number of key questions, including:

  • If you tripped or slipped, had the dangerous spot existed 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 more secure place the object could have been located without much more inconvenience or cost to the property owner?
  • Could a simple barrier have been developed 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 and Fall Injury?

A slip and fall accident can cause a wide range of severe injuries, including fractures, soft-tissue damage, spinal cord injuries as well as traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is important to consult with a law firm that will seek maximum compensation for the harm you have suffered, including:

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

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

In California, you could be barred from recovering anything if you were more than 50 percent at fault for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be reduced by an amount that is proportional to the percentage of fault credited to you.

Your attorney from Tim D. Wright, will aggressively counter any unfounded claims made by a property owner's insurance company as well as work hard to protect your legal rights.
