A slip and fall accident is a type of premises liability case. It can be brought against any kind of property owner or inhabitant, including a private homeowner, store or other business or a local, state or federal government.

To recoup damages in an California slip and fall case, you typically must show:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable threat of harm to you. Hazards that could cause a person to slip, trip and fall include:
  • Pavimento roto o irregular en aceras o aparcamientos
  • Suelos y pasillos nevados, helados o mojados
  • Ripped, torn or loose rugs and carpets
  • Líquidos derramados en el suelo
  • Escaleras rotas o desiguales
  • Poor lighting in corridors, stairwells, or outside walkways
  • Agujeros en el suelo u objetos que sobresalen del suelo
  • Barandillas rotas, faltantes o sueltas
  • Mal funcionamiento de escaleras mecánicas o ascensores
  • The property owner knew or, in the exercise of normal care, should have known of both the condition and injury risk. Essentially, the owner or occupier had "actual notice" based on seeing the slip and fall risk or creating the hazard or "constructive notice" based on the hazard existing 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 understood the danger 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 failed to take sensible measures to protect you by either fixing the hazard or providing you a proper warning regarding it.
  • Como consecuencia de la imprudencia del propietario, usted sufrió lesiones.

As you contemplate whether you have the option 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 area existed long enough so that the owner should have known about it?
  • Si alguna vez hubo una buena razón para que el objeto estuviera allí y esa razón ya no existe, ¿podría haberse retirado el objeto?
  • Was there a safer place the object could have been located without much more inconvenience or cost to the property owner?
  • Could a basic barrier have been made or a warning offered to stop you from slipping or tripping?
  • ¿Contribuyó al accidente una iluminación inadecuada o dañada?


A slip and fall accident can lead to a wide variety of severe injuries, including bone fractures, soft-tissue damage, spinal cord injuries as well as traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is important to consult with a law firm that will pursue maximum reimbursement for the harm you have suffered, including:

  • Past and also future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
  • Dolor y sufrimiento
  • Pérdida de calidad de vida

A property owner's insurance company may attempt to place blame on you for your slip and fall accident. For instance, the insurance provider may allege 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 barred from recuperating anything if you were more than 50 percent responsible for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be decreased by an amount that is proportionate to the percentage of fault credited to you.

Your attorney from Drake Law Firm, will aggressively oppose any kind of unfounded claims made by a property owner's insurance company and work diligently to defend your rights.


It is vital to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible if you are injured in a slip and fall accident. An attorney has to take steps immediately to preserve evidence and begin the process of bringing a claim against the property owner.

A slip and fall claim, like other personal injury claims in California, needs to be submitted within two years after an accident has occurred. This is called the statute of limitations. If you fail to meet that deadline, you could be barred from seeking a claim.

A California slip and fall lawyer at Drake Law Firm, will make sure your case is timely and correctly submitted.
