Orange County Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys
An owner of a property is liable for failing to use ordinary care in the management of his person and property. In essence, the owner, whether they are a private person or public entity (i.e. a city), must act reasonably and take into account the probability of injury to others on their properties. When the owner fails to do so, an injured party may recover for personal injury.
"Slip and fall" accidents are caused when a person slips (or trips) on a floor, sidewalk, or other surface. Generally, the owner of a house, a building, a parking lot or any other premise is responsible for a slip and fall on the premises. Some examples of actions this office has handled in this area include:
- An employee of a major company is severely injured when boxes are negligently stored on the top shelf of a retail store.
- A 40-year old Italian tourist trips and falls over a metal bracket attached to a tree on the Hollywood Walk of Fame fracturing his femur. A. v. City of Los Angeles, et.al.
