Slips, Trips & Falls
We all know accidents happen. One tiny misjudgment, one moment when you’re not paying attention, and you can find yourself taking a painful tumble. Most of the time, the result is no more than a few bruises and a little embarrassment, but sometimes, it’s a lot more severe than that. Slips and falls can result in broken bones and other serious injuries, and when the momentary lack of attention was someone else’s, and you have to suffer because of their misjudgment, it’s time to get a California Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer on your side.
What Should You Know About Slips and Falls?
Slips and falls are some of the most common reasons for workplace injuries, but they also happen in public places, as well as, of course, in private homes.
When you ask a personal injury attorney whose fault these type of accidents are they will tell you that it depends. Here’s why:
- Owners and operators of public spaces and work places have a duty to take appropriate actions to protect the users of their faculties.
- That means placing signage in a visible place near a permanently slippery area, or temporary signage when there’s a temporary problem, for instance a wet floor.
- They have the obligation to mitigate risk too, so, for instance, they might add grip strips to slippery stairs, to help prevent slips and falls.
If any of these things are not done, and someone does slip and fall in that area, then the owner and or operator of the building or space may be liable.
