Slips & Falls

Trips, slips and falls on someone else’s property are considered premises liability cases. In California, property owners are responsible for injuries sustained due to lack of proper maintenance or when the owner failed to adequately warn visitors about potential hazards.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to a fall on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.

Do You Have A Legitimate Slip & Fall Case?

In order to have a legitimate slip and fall case, The Law Offices of Jeffrey A. Weaver will need to prove:

  • That A Dangerous Condition Was Present. This could be water, oil or some other liquid on the floor, an extension cord left out across the walkway or a cracked sidewalk that wasn’t repaired.
  • That An Injury Was Caused By The Dangerous Condition. It’s vital that you collect as much evidence as possible at the time of the injury. Take photos right away if possible, get statements from witnesses and get names and contact information for the property owner, manager or employees who were there at the time.
  • Whether There Was Knowledge Of A Dangerous Condition. If the property owner knew of a dangerous condition and didn’t adequately warn visitors, they are liable for injuries. If the property owner claims they did not know about the condition, the victim could argue that any “reasonable” person would be able to discern the danger and should have taken steps to mitigate it.
