Help from experienced slip and fall lawyers

People are often injured in the community or private settings. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, more than 9 million people were injured by a fall in 2011 and thousands of those were fatal accidents. Our San Diego trip and fall attorneys understand conditions that lead to injury including:

  • Inadequate or nonfunctioning lighting
  • Poorly maintained flooring, worn stairs or uneven walkways
  • Overstocked aisles, merchandise or other fall hazards that lead to tripping accidents
  • Inadequate warning of building or premises maintenance hazards
  • Failure to clear walkways of snow or icy buildup
  • Inadequate security or safety procedures
  • Construction practices or materials that lead to structural failure

Slip and fall accidents can result in minor sprains or lead to devastating brain or head injury. No matter how severe your injury is, however, your premises liability claim is based upon the reason you were on the property or legal status. On-premises owned or controlled by others, your legal status may be one of the following:

  • Invitee: As an invitee, you have an invitation or opportunity to shop or conduct commerce on the premises of another, conferring a high expectation of safety when on those premises.
  • Licensee: A licensee, such as a social guest, may not be conducting business, but has a reasonable expectation of safety while on property controlled by another.
  • Trespasser: While a property owner may post warnings of known dangerous conditions, the obligation to provide safe premises is limited when trespassers are on their property without their knowledge.

When handling your premises liability case, we determine who had control of the property where you were injured, work to prove that the negligence of another caused your injury and investigate whether your actions contributed to the accident.
