Injured in a Slip and Fall Accident?

By Mark Bush  Feb. 4, 2011 4:24p

Whenever a person slips and falls due to a hazardous floor or other walking surface, the property owner who allowed the hazard to exist can be held liable for the injuries that person may obtain in the accident. Due to the potential danger that a slip and fall accident can have for causing severe injury to a person's body, property owners are required by law to take reasonable actions that promote a safe and relatively hazard free environment for anyone who enters their property. Premises liability cases often result in significant compensation being paid to victims who are seriously injured due to a property owner's negligence. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, a San Diego personal injury attorney may be able to assist you in filing a claim.

There are numerous potential hazards that could result in slip and fall injuries. These can include broken or uneven floors, missing stairs, poor lighting, and wet or slippery floors. Wet floors are actually one of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents. These can result in broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and head trauma and brain injuries. Some hazards that could cause a slip and fall could include spills of drinks or other liquids, wet floors from mopping or plumbing issues, slick floors due to a previous waxing and ice on sidewalks or in parking lots. While a property owner may not be able to prevent all accidents from occurring, they are required to make a reasonable effort in maintaining a safe environment to prevent accidents.
