A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, inside or outside. When it happens to a social guest or business invitee because of a property owner’s failure to uphold his or her duty of care to the victim by removing hazards from the property, the victim may seek compensation for his or her damages through a personal injury claim. A property owner’s duty of care requires him or her to take reasonable care to remove hazards from the property.
Property owners only have a duty of care to authorized individuals. In most cases, trespassers cannot recover compensation for their damages suffered in a slip and fall accident.
Slip and Fall Hazards
There are many hazards that can cause an individual to suffer a slip and fall accident. These include:
- Broken steps;
- Uneven pavement;
- Outdoor hazards like potholes;
- Loose handrails;
- Wet tiles and other slick flooring; and
- Unsecured carpets and wires.

- Damage to the soft tissue and organs.
If you are injured in a slip and fall, seek medical attention as soon as you can. A prompt diagnosis and appropriate medical treatment can make a significant difference to your recovery.
Seeking Compensation through a Personal Injury Claim
If you are injured because of a property owner’s negligence and you want to seek compensation through a premises liability claim, typically you must do so within two years of the accident. This is due to California’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims. If you did not discover your injury until later, the statute of limitations for filing your claim is one year from the date of the injury’s discovery.
You will need to supply evidence to support your claim. Evidence is how you demonstrate not only how the property owner was negligent, but the total figure of your financial damages.
Evidence you may use to support a slip and fall claim includes:
- Your medical record;
- Documentation of your time out of work and lost wages;
- Photographs and video surveillance of the accident;
- Eyewitness testimonies of the accident; and
- A copy of the accident report if you filed one with the property’s owner.
