If you slip and fall on someone’s property and sustain an injury, you may have the right to file a civil lawsuit to recover damages. If the slip and fall occurred because of a dangerous condition the property owner may be liable for your damages.
California law requires property owners to keep their property reasonably safe and to warn others if there are any dangerous conditions. Slip and fall injuries can include:
- Slipping in the lobby of a building after the floor has been cleaned
- Slipping in a grocery store on a spilled liquid
- Tripping over torn carpeting or an uneven sidewalk
- Failure to see a depression due to inadequate lighting
Your damages can include the cost of your medical care after the injury, the loss of employment wages, the loss of future earning capacity and the pain and suffering you experienced because of the injury.
