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

To recuperate damages in an California slip and fall claim, you typically need to show:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable threat of harm 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 carpeting
  • 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
  • Faulty 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 hazard or creating the hazard or "constructive notice" based on the risk being there long enough that the owner or inhabitant should have seen it.
  • The property owner might have reasonably anticipated that you would not have discovered or understood the risk 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 just been mopped.
  • The property owner failed to take sensible steps to protect you by either repairing the hazard or providing you an adequate warning about it.
  • As a result of the property owner's negligence, you sustained injuries.

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

  • If you tripped or slipped, had the hazardous 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 however 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 basic barrier have been made or a warning offered to stop you from slipping or tripping?
  • Did inadequate or damaged lighting contribute to the accident?


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

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and diminished earning ability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life

A property owner's insurance company may try to put blame on you for your slip and fall accident. For example, the insurance company may claim 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 recuperating anything if you were more than 50 percent at fault for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be decreased by an amount that is proportionate to the percentage of fault credited to you.

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


It is essential to contact an attorney as soon as possible if you are hurt in a slip and fall accident. An attorney has to take steps as soon as possible to preserve evidence and begin the procedure of bringing a case against the property owner.

A slip and fall claim, like other personal injury cases in California, must be submitted within two years after an accident has taken place. This is called the statute of limitations. If you fail to meet that deadline, you could be denied from seeking a claim.

A California slip and fall lawyer at Tim D. Wright, will make sure your case is timely and properly filed.
