What Must You Prove in a Slip and Fall Claim in California?

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

To recuperate damages in an California slip and fall case, you generally have 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
  • Ripped, torn or loose rugs and carpets
  • Líquidos derramados en el suelo
  • Escaleras rotas o desiguales
  • Iluminación deficiente en pasillos, escaleras o pasillos exteriores.
  • Agujeros en el suelo u objetos que sobresalen del suelo
  • Barandillas rotas, faltantes o sueltas
  • Defective escalators or elevators
  • The property owner knew or, in the exercise of ordinary care, should have known of both the condition and injury possibility. In other words, the owner or inhabitant had "actual notice" based on seeing the slip and fall hazard or creating the hazard or "constructive notice" based on the hazard being there long enough that the owner or occupier should have seen it.
  • The property owner could have reasonably anticipated that you would not have discovered or realized the risk or would fail to protect yourself against the danger. For example, you would not have known that an office building lobby was slippery because it had just been mopped.
  • The property owner neglected to take reasonable measures to protect you by either repairing the hazard or giving you a proper warning regarding it.
  • As a result of the property owner's negligence, you suffered injuries.

As you consider whether you have the ability to bring a slip and fall claim, you will need to ask yourself a number of essential questions, including:

  • Si tropezó o resbaló, ¿había estado la zona peligrosa el tiempo suficiente para que el propietario debiera haberla conocido?
  • Si alguna vez hubo una buena razón para que el objeto estuviera allí, pero esa razón ya no existe, ¿podría haberse retirado el objeto?
  • Was there a safer area the object could have been located without much more inconvenience or cost to the property owner?
  • Could a basic barrier have been developed or a caution given to keep you from slipping or tripping?
  • Did inadequate or broken lighting contribute to the accident?

¿Qué indemnización puedo obtener por una lesión por resbalón y caída?

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

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

A property owner's insurance company might try to place blame on you for your slip and fall accident. For example, the insurance provider may allege that you tripped, slipped and fell because of an "open and obvious" risk that you should have detected 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 decreased by an amount that is in proportion to the percentage of fault credited to you.

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

¿Cuál es el plazo de prescripción en un caso de resbalón y caída en California?

It is vital to contact a lawyer as soon as possible if you are hurt in a slip and fall accident. A lawyer must take steps immediately to preserve evidence and start the procedure of bringing a case against the property owner.

A slip and fall case, like other personal injury lawsuits in California, needs to be filed 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 pursuing a claim.

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