Slip-And-Fall Attorney In LA

Property owners are responsible for maintaining their property in safe conditions. If you slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall and are injured, the owner of the property can be held liable if it can be shown that they contributed to dangerous conditions, or did not remedy dangerous conditions, that resulted in the fall and injuries. Every year, falls account for over 8 million emergency room visits and can leave victims with lifelong pain and suffering.

One of the most common conditions is a wet or slippery floor that is not properly marked. This is particularly common when shopping, especially in indoor malls. Slippery floors can be caused by cleaning or leaks – for example, rain coming through a hole in the roof or leaks from heating and cooling systems. Other things that can cause dangerous conditions are broken or damaged floors, loose carpeting, broken stair handrails, etc. Such conditions must also have warnings, such as wet floor signs.
