Slip and Fall

Among the most common personal injuries are slip and fall accidents. Pedestrians who trip on uneven pavement and shoppers who lose their footing on slippery store floors or have store merchandise topple on top of them may be able to recover financial damages from property owners under the theory of premises liability.

It is important to note, however, that property owners are not automatically liable for any and all injuries that occur on their property. In order to be held responsible for injuries sustained on their land, property owners must make sure that their property is reasonably safe.

The law firm of Hodes Milman Liebeck is staffed by experienced personal injury lawyers who will evaluate your legal claim and, if appropriate, represent you in your personal injury lawsuit.

Unsafe Conditions Leading to Trip and Fall

Although circumstances vary from case to case, you may have the basis for a slip and fall lawsuit, and should talk to an attorney at our firm in California or Arizona if your accident involved:

  • Slippery or sticky floor
  • Unmarked uneven walking surfaces (including sidewalks)
  • Unidentified step down
  • Holes or large cracks in pavement or flooring
  • Loose steps or handrails

Because the above conditions in and of themselves may not warrant a slip and fall lawsuit, it is important to speak with an attorney about the circumstances of your personal injury case.

Slip and Fall Litigation

In order to build a strong slip and fall accident case, an attorney must demonstrate that the property owner or business (or one of its representatives):

  • Caused the unsafe condition
  • Was aware of the dangerous condition but did not take steps to correct it
  • Should have been aware of the unsafe situation because a “reasonable person” would have seen it and taken steps to protect the safety of others

In some situations it may be difficult to determine liability in a trip and fall accident. A skilled attorney at our Los Angeles area law firm is familiar with California and Arizona laws and can help to determine whether your accident merits a premises liability lawsuit.
