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
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.

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.
