Un accidente por resbalón y caída es un tipo de caso de responsabilidad de las instalaciones. Puede interponerse contra cualquier tipo de propietario o habitante, incluido un propietario particular, una tienda u otro negocio o un gobierno local, estatal o federal.

To recuperate damages in an California slip and fall case, you typically need to demonstrate:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable threat of harm to you. Hazards that might cause someone to slip, trip and fall consist of:
  • Broken or uneven pavement on sidewalks or in parking lots
  • Suelos y pasillos nevados, helados o mojados
  • Alfombras y moquetas rasgadas, rotas o sueltas
  • Líquidos derramados en el suelo
  • Broken or uneven stairways
  • Iluminación deficiente en pasillos, escaleras o pasillos exteriores.
  • 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 ordinary 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 risk or "constructive notice" based on the hazard being there long enough that the owner or occupier should have seen it.
  • The property owner might 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 recently been mopped.
  • The property owner failed to take reasonable measures to protect you by either fixing the hazard or providing you a proper warning regarding it.
  • As a result of the property owner's carelessness, you sustained injuries.

As you contemplate whether you have the ability to bring a slip and fall claim, you will need to ask yourself several 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 more inconvenience or cost to the property owner?
  • Could a basic barrier have been made or a warning given to prevent you from slipping or tripping?
  • ¿Contribuyó al accidente una iluminación inadecuada o dañada?


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

  • Gastos médicos pasados y futuros
  • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
  • Dolor y sufrimiento
  • Pérdida de calidad de vida

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

In California, you could be denied from recovering anything if you were more than 50 percent at fault for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be reduced by a quantity that is in proportion to the percentage of fault credited to you.

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


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

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

A California slip and fall attorney at Drake Law Firm, will ensure your case is timely and properly filed.
