San Diego and Surrounding Areas: Slip and Fall Cases

Dangerous surfaces can lurk anywhere; at a home, a grocery store or business.  When the weather is rainy, or there is an unmarked whole in the ground it puts people in danger who are walking on certain surfaces, or near the whole in the ground. A slip and fall accident may happen on the job in San Diego, or at a local store or mall. If these maintenance issues were on the property of someone else (either for business purposes or non-business purposes) and you are injured by slipping or falling, than you should consider that the property owner can be held responsible for your injuries as a result of the accident. The good part of California law is that it attempts to protect the rights and health of all San Diego Residents and United States citizens and your rights to reasonable safety have been violated when you are critically injured on premises owned by a company or an individual. The law requires that a property owner must maintain a certain level of safety for those invited visitors of their property.  This means they have a duty to make sure the surfaces you walk on a free from hidden or known dangers.

Each slip or trip and fall case is different from the other.  In some California slip and fall cases, the property owner is not at fault, but in cases where flights of steps have been broken and unmarked, or floors have been soaked without warning of a wet floor, and / or uneven / rough patches of a walkway have not been closed off then San Diego Premises Liability law holds that the owner is responsible and punishable by law. The law does not cover slip and fall claims which reveal to be a common sense issue on the part of injured person, but the upkeep of the property has to be evidently maintained so that a slip and/ or fall accident would not happen on the premises.
