One of the most common types of personal injury accidents are slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, especially amongst the elderly population. As common as they may be, these types of accidents are complex because it is not easy to determine who is liable for the accident and the resulting injuries.
If you or someone you love was injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, you should consult an experienced San Fernando Valley slip and fall accident attorney to help you get liability and the full extent of damages that you deserve.
How To Determine Liability
Property owners have a duty to maintain and/or warn visitors of any dangers on their property. However, the property owner’s duty may depend on the legal status of the victim. If the owner fails to meet the required level of duty owed to the individual who ultimately slipped and fell as a result, the property owner may be liable for any resulting injuries.
In some cases, another party may also be directly or indirectly responsible for your slip and fall or trip and fall injuries. For example, construction workers who neglect to provide a proper safety zone around their work site may be liable if a passerby is injured by falling debris.
