What Must You Prove in a Slip & Fall Claim in California?

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 generally need to demonstrate:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable threat 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 carpeting
  • Liquids spilled on floors
  • Broken or uneven stairways
  • Poor lighting in hallways, 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 normal care, should have known of both the condition and injury possibility. In other words, the owner or inhabitant had "actual notice" based on seeing the slip and fall risk or creating the risk or "constructive notice" based on the risk being there long enough that the owner or inhabitant should have seen it.
  • The property owner could have reasonably expected that you would not have discovered or recognized the risk or would fail to protect yourself against the danger. For example, you would not have known that an office building lobby was slippery since it had just been mopped.
  • The property owner neglected to take sensible steps to protect you by either fixing the hazard or giving you a proper warning about it.
  • As a result of the property owner's carelessness, 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 dangerous 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 safer place the object could have been located without much greater inconvenience or cost to the property owner?
  • Could a simple barrier have been developed or a caution provided to keep you from slipping or tripping?
  • Did insufficient or damaged lighting contribute to the accident?

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

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 pursue maximum compensation for the damage you have experienced, including:

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

A property owner's insurance company may attempt to place blame on you for your slip and fall accident. For example, the insurer might claim that you tripped, slipped and fell because of an "open and obvious" risk that you should have recognized or did something else that was negligent.

In California, you could be denied from recouping anything if you were more than 50 percent responsible for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be decreased by an amount that is in proportion to the percentage of fault credited to you. Your attorney from Mendez & Sanchez, will aggressively oppose any unfounded claims made by a property owner's insurance company as well as work hard to defend your rights.
