Orange County Slip and Fall / Trip and Fall Attorney Services

Orange County Slip and Fall / Trip and Fall Attorney Services

“Slip and fall” or “trip and fall” are general terms used to describe types of premises liability cases that arise when a person slips or trips and falls as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else's property. California property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition, free of hazards to patrons and guests. In legal terms, this is known as premises liability. Fall cases stem from a variety of different types of hazards, including:

  • Carpeting that is in disrepair
  • Flooring that is not level
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Wet or slippery floor
  • Rain, ice, or snow that is not cleared within a reasonable time after a storm
  • Unmarked wells or holes in the ground
  • Sidewalks that are uneven or have hidden gaps

These cases are litigated under the legal theory of negligence. The injured person must prove the property owner negligently created the hazardous condition or knew (or should have known) about the hazard and failed to have it removed or repaired. This is where the help of an experienced attorney can make a great difference. The best premises liability attorneys know how to investigate the circumstances of a fall, collect evidence, and interview witnesses to be sure your case is as strong as possible.
