Proving Liability in Slip & Fall Accidents

File a Claim with Our Irvine Personal Injury Attorney

Negligent or inattentive property owners might not see the purpose of cleaning up after themselves in a timely, safe manner. What they do not realize is that people visiting their homes or places of business are not aware of the hazards that might be present, especially clutter left on the ground or pooled spills. Their negligence poses a serious risk of slip and fall accidents.

If you have been hurt after slipping and falling while on someone else’s property, you might be able to make a premises liability case with the help of The Law Offices of Thomas E. Rockett III. Contact our Irvine personal injury lawyers today to start seeking fair financial compensation.

Common Causes for Slip and Fall Accidents

When you try to pursue financial compensation for your injuries, you will first need to prove that you were not solely responsible for the incident. If you can, try to collect as much evidence as you can immediately after your fall, including pictures and eyewitness testimonies. You should then contact a Irvine premises liability attorney from our firm to help you piece together a case that can stand a solid chance in court.

With our help, we can prove that your slip and fall accident was due to negligence on part of the property owner. Evidence we will look for includes:

  • Damaged tiles
  • Torn or lifted carpeting
  • Unmarked spills or slippery surfaces
  • Piles of debris
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Missing or broken handrails, especially near steps

In most slip and fall accidents that do not involve a permanent fixture, the responsible parties or owners will try to clean up the area afterwards to remove any evidence of their wrongdoing. Our Irvine personal injury attorneys are familiar with any dishonest tactics they might try to use, and we know how to counter them effectively.
