The legal definition of a slip and fall accident
First of all, let’s discuss what a slip and fall accident really is. In California, a premises liability accident is actually the umbrella term that covers both slip and fall cases, in which a person slips as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, and trip and fall cases, which refers to an accident that’s similar but involves tripping rather than slipping.
You must be able to prove negligence
Remember that simply hurting yourself on someone’s property isn’t enough to have a personal injury claim. You must be able to prove that your fall was caused by the negligence of someone else. In California, in order for your slip and fall lawyer in Norca CA to be able to prove your case, we must be able to establish:
- The owner of the property caused the danger condition themselves;
- The owner of the property either knew about the condition or should have known. There’s such a thing as “reasonable” under California law, which means we must prove that even if the owner didn’t know about the dangerous condition, they should have reasonably discovered it;
- The property owner didn’t repair or remove the problem, or, in the event that a warning would have prevented the accident, didn’t provide a warning about the dangerous condition.
