Who is liable in a slip and fall case?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

Slip and fall cases are one of the most difficult and complex in our current legal system.  Falls can happen anywhere at any time, but there can be quite a few questions that accompany them.  Who pays for my medical bills?  What if I am seriously injured?  Who was really at fault?  It takes a much closer inspection by our slip and fall lawyer in Los Angeles to determine who is really liable in these types of cases.

The first thing to keep in mind is that these cases can happen anywhere and everywhere.  It could on public property, a private store, or even in one’s own home.  When the victim lays claims against another party it could either be the owner of the property or whoever is responsible for maintaining a safe environment.

There are three cases in which the other party will be legally responsible for any and all damages.  The first is if the damage or unsafe environment were physically caused by the owner.  The second scenario is if the owner knew of the damage but did nothing to take care of the situation.  Finally, if the owner was in fact a “reasonable” caretaker, they would have discovered the damage before an injury could take place.

These laws may sound somewhat vague and confusing, and that is because they are.  A Los Angeles slip and fall attorney is here help injured victims navigate this complex legal process.  We work relentlessly to find the settlements and verdicts that you need to pay your bills and get on with your life.
