Slip & Fall Accidents

slip and fall accidents in Long beach

A slip and fall case is when a person falls and injures themselves as a result of a dangerous condition on the ground of someone’s property. This dangerous condition can be either a liquid, gel, solid, raised carpet, leaves, ice, dirty area, or any substance that can cause a person to slip or trip and fall. A land owner has a duty to periodically check for such dangerous conditions and must correct them in a timely manner. If they do not do so, they may be held negligently liable and you can recoup monies for the injuries you have sustained.

When serious injuries happen on another’s premises, the injured person may have the right to file a personal injury claim against the owner and/or caretaker. This type of law is called premises liability law, and it has helped protect countless people from financial devastation after they sustained injuries caused by the negligence of others. Here are a few examples of slip and fall hazards that may be labeled as owner negligence:

  • Spills left unattended or unmarked
  • Dimly lit walkways that encourage falls or criminal activity
  • Elevator malfunctions
  • Wobbly steps
  • Loose handrails
  • Holes in flooring, loose floorboards or tiles
  • Equipment or other obstructions in walkways
  • Poor security leading to burglary, assault, or other crimes
  • Unsafe swings or other playground equipment
  • Falling debris
  • Unguarded pools or ponds
