Why You Need a California Slip and Fall Attorney
Slip and fall accidents are governed by California premises liability law, which requires all owners of private, commercial, and public property to maintain their property, provide a safe environment to visitors, and adequately warn them of any hazardous conditions.
When a slip and fall injury occurs because the property owner failed to maintain the property or repair a dangerous condition, the owner can be held liable through a premises liability lawsuit. Given the challenges of recovering damages in an accident, it is wise to have an experienced attorney handle your claim.
Whether you have been injured in an accident at a grocery store in Los Angeles, on a trail in Golden Gate Park, or on your neighbor’s property, you deserve just compensation for the harm you have endured. Trust our legal team to help you obtain the medical and financial resources you need to recover.
A slip and fall accident can be caused by our own carelessness, but most injuries are caused by dangerous conditions such as:
- Wet, icy, or slippery surfaces
- Broken stairs/poorly secured banisters
- Torn or uneven carpeting
- Debris/obstructed walkways
- Poorly lit walkways or hallways
- Uneven or warped flooring
- Poorly secured rugs
- Failing to warn visitors about a hazardous condition
- Failing to take prompt action to remedy a hazard
Slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevent (CDC), the most common injuries include:

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident due to the property owner’s negligence (e.g. failing to make necessary repairs in a timely manner or warn you about the hazardous condition), you are entitled to compensation. The best way to protect your rights is to have an experienced California personal injury attorney at your side.
