A slip and fall accident can result in a serious injury. If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, you can potentially find yourself facing significant financial damages such as high medical bills and lost wages due to out of work to recover or due to a decreased capability from the injury. You have the right to file a premises liability claim to seek compensation for these damages if the accident was caused by the property owner’s negligence.
Slip and Fall Hazards
Property owners have a duty of care to all social guests and business visitors to their properties. This means that they are required to take reasonable care to remove any hazards that can cause injuries from their properties. Slip and fall hazards that should be repaired or removed from properties include:
- Broken steps;
- Unsecured carpeting and wires;
- Wet floors;
- Uneven pavement;
- Potholes; and
- Unstable surfaces, such as decks.
When an area is poorly lit or wet, it can become especially dangerous.

The injuries a victim can suffer in a slip and fall accident include:
- Broken bones;
- Organ damage;
- Injuries to the brain and spinal cord;
- Soft Tissue injuries; and
If you suffer a fall, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Do this even if you do not feel injured at the time of the fall – sometimes, injuries are not visible at first, but then become severe if they are left untreated.
Seeking Compensation through a Personal Injury Claim
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident due to a property owner’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages through a personal injury claim. Through your claim, you must demonstrate how the property owner was negligent and that the accident caused you to suffer specific damages. Evidence you may use to demonstrate these facts includes:
- Photographs and video surveillance of the accident;
- Testimonies from eyewitnesses and expert sources, such as your doctor;
- Your medical record;
- Record of your lost wages; and
- A copy of your accident report.
In California, personal injury claims typically must be filed within two years of the date of the accident. This requirement is known as the statute of limitations. When an injury is not discovered until after the accident, the statute of limitations is one year from the date that the victim discovered his or her injury.
