Protect Your Rights After A Slip-And-Fall Accident

Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents sound superficial, but they can cause serious injury. Dangerous, hazardous or poorly maintained properties are often the cause, and property owners and managers are responsible for ensuring their premises are safe and secure. Slip-and-fall cases are some of the most common premises liability claims, and there are varying degrees of liability involved in these types of cases.

Determining If You Have A Case

There are an endless number of circumstances in which you may have been injured on someone's property, but some situations are more common than others. It is always advisable to seek the counsel of a slip-and-fall accident attorney to determine if you have a case and the examples outlined below are merely guidelines.

Call Rosenthal & Kreeger, LLP, at 916-677-4979 if you have been injured and schedule a free consultation about your accident. We represent clients in Sacramento and throughout Northern California, including those in Folsom and Auburn.

Common slip-and-fall injury cases include many types of poorly maintained conditions, including:

  • Defective sidewalk, driveway, parking lot, road or pavement
  • Structural defects such as uneven steps, broken tiles, potholes or torn carpeting
  • Weather hazards such as snow, ice or other adverse conditions

To recover damages in cases like these, there are three conditions that must be met.

  • The defective condition must have existed on the property when the injury occurred.
  • The owner must have or should have known about the defective condition.
  • The condition existed long enough so that it should have been addressed.
