Slip and Fall Attorneys
Slip and fall accidents are a surprisingly common cause of injury. They can occur at any time and are more serious than many people assume. Serious slip and falls can result in torn ligaments, broken bones, and concussions. While not all slip and fall incidents are compensatory, if the slip and fall injury occurs as the result of another entity’s negligence, a legal case may be pursued.

What Causes Slip and Fall Accidents
Going about your everyday business in public, you suddenly find yourself on the floor and in pain. You don’t remember seeing anything out of the ordinary at all. Upon further investigation, you discover that someone spilled something that wasn’t cleaned up properly. Uncleaned spills, walking hazards, broken stairs or hand railings, and unmarked wet floors can all cause slip and fall accidents that could potentially be pursued.
Premises liability is a complicated area of personal injury law. California law protects slip and fall victims when a manager or property owner should have done something about dangerous conditions. Property owners are required to maintain their property to a standard level of safety. If they do not, they may be held liable for injuries to customers or visitors. If you have slipped and fallen on a property you do not own, you could pursue legal action. Collect the contact information of the property owner, then contact a personal injury attorney for a case evaluation.
Prevalence of Slip and Fall Injuries
Experts estimate that more than 8 million people seek emergency room care for slip and fall accidents each year. They are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in the country. The older a person is, the more likely he or she will experience a fall, and the more likely that injury will be serious. The most common type of injury associated with a slip and fall is a broken bone.
