Compensation For Slip-And-Fall Injuries And Other Premises Accidents
In California, people who own, lease, occupy or control property may be responsible when someone is injured on that property. Specifically, the owner or another responsible party should exercise reasonable care to keep the property in reasonably safe condition.
Responsible people or organizations should also use reasonable care to discover unsafe conditions when they occur and repair, replace or warn people about risk elements, as in the following examples.
- A hole in the ground should be marked and covered.
- A glass door should have some method of alerting people that glass is there.
- Broken stair railings should be repaired or replaced.
When someone is injured because of negligence in premises maintenance, an injury claim may result in a settlement or verdict to compensate the injured person.
How Did Your Slip-And-Fall Accident Happen And Who Is Responsible?
Slip-and-fall accidents very often fall within the definitions of premises liability cases. When you suffered an injury on public or private property, did the owner, landlord, property management company or occupants fail to fulfill their duties of care? Was someone’s negligence responsible for your injuries?
