Big Bear Slip and Fall Accidents Lawyer

One of the most common types of premises liability cases are claims arising out of "silps and falls" and "trip and falls." These types of accidents occur when an individual falls on the premises owned by another person or company. It has been reported that 9,000,000 slip and falls occur each year or approximately 25,000 falls a day. Slip and fall accidents can alter the injured person's entire life. Dangerous conditions such as unmarked wet floors, unsafe handrails, improper lighting, misplaced parking lot bumpers, staircases in disrepair, ripped carpeting, un-level surfaces either indoors or out, and other hazards can lead to slip and fall injuries.

Slip and fall accidents can occur on commercial, residential or public property; but regardless of where they happen, all property or building owners have a certain level of responsibility to make sure an environment is safe. The term "premises liability" refers to the liability of certain persons for injuries and damages to others arising from the ownership or possession of real property. In California, premises liability is based on general principles of negligence and is controlled both by statute and case law. Slip and fall accidents fall under premises liability. There is no precise way to determine who is at fault when a slip and fall injury occurs.
