Although each case is different, most slip and fall accidents are under the category of “premise liabilities” which is basically a case of a person getting injured due to an accident while on someone’s property. A slip and fall accident may include falling objects, tripping, or collapsed footing. If you have had a slip and fall injury, our San Diego slip and fall accident lawyer can help you get financial compensation for injuries regardless of where it happened.
Who is at Fault?
When you are on someone’s property and you get injured, who is at fault? Who is the responsible party? In fact, the person who owns the property is the responsible party. If there is an unsafe situation, the property owner must provide sufficient warning so injuries and accidents are prevented. Even if the property owner has taken some measures to warn you of the potential dangers, he or she may still be liable for the injuries acquired due to unsafe conditions on the property.
For example, if a grocery store has a spill on their aisle and a shopper slips on the spill, the store owner is responsible for the injuries. The store owner (and the employees) are responsible for cleaning up the spill so people do not get hurt. Our personal injury attorney will investigate to see if appropriate measures were in place to prevent injury, or if action was taken to control the situation and avoid injury to patrons. We may be able to retrieve video recordings, photographs, or find witnesses to the incident. If the store did not make efforts to protect shoppers and did not provide sufficient warning to circumvent injuries, our attorneys can help you file lawsuit and seek compensation due to their negligence.
