What Must You Prove In a Slip and 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 generally need to demonstrate:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable risk of injury to you. Hazards that could cause a person 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 ordinary care, should have known of both the condition and injury risk. Essentially, the owner or occupier had "actual notice" based on seeing the slip and fall hazard or creating the risk or "constructive notice" based on the hazard being there long enough that the owner or inhabitant 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 risk. For example, you would not have known that an office building lobby was slippery because it had just been mopped.
  • The property owner failed to take sensible 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 carelessness, you sustained injuries.

As you contemplate whether you have the option 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 area 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 but that reason no longer exists, could the object have been removed?
  • Was there a safer place 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 given to prevent you from slipping or tripping?
  • Did inadequate or damaged lighting contribute to the accident?

What Compensation Can I Acquire for a Slip and Fall Injury?

A slip and fall accident can lead to a wide variety of severe injuries, including fractures, soft-tissue damage, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is essential to work with an attorney that will seek maximum compensation for the harm you have experienced, including:

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

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

In California, you could be denied from recouping anything if you were more than 50 percent at fault for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be decreased by a quantity that is proportionate to the percentage of fault attributed to you.

Your lawyer, Tim D. Wright, will aggressively counter any kind of unfounded claims made by a property owner's insurance company and work hard to defend your legal rights.
