Slip and fall accidents cause serious and sometimes catastrophic injury says California Personal Injury Lawyer Steven Peck.
According to the laws in most states, premises liability law places a duty upon property owners to maintain their property in a reasonably safe manner and to guard against unsafe conditions that could cause an accident. .
Most slip and fall cases involve injuries resulting from unmarked/uneven stairs or step-offs, slippery floors, and unstable stair railings. Common injuries associated with slip and fall cases include broken bones and necks, severe bruising, concussions, all causing serious personal injury.
Premises liability law usually requires that an injured individual prove that a property owner disregarded an unsafe condition, was negligent in repairing a dangerous situation, and/or failed to warn of foreseeable dangers. As with any personal injury action, documents and information relating to the scene of the accident may help an injured individual prove his or her case. Thus, contacting a Peck Law Group personal injury lawyer quickly may allow you to recover information about the unsafe condition before changes are made.
