Trip/Slip & Fall Accidents

Los Angeles Trip, Slip & Fall Lawyers

Trip, slip, and fall accidents, often categorized under premises liability, are incidents where a person is injured due to unsafe conditions on someone else's property. These can occur in various public or private settings in Los Angeles, from sidewalks and parking lots to supermarkets and apartment buildings. 

They can result from spillage or debris left unattended on pathways, aisles, or corridors and in other scenarios where premises owners have failed to maintain reasonably safe environments.  

Property owners or managers can be held liable in these cases if negligence is established. Negligence involves proving that the property owner or manager knew, or should have known, about the unsafe condition and failed to rectify it. 

For instance, if a store manager neglected to put up a “wet floor” sign after mopping up a broken product, causing a customer to slip and injure themselves, the manager could be deemed negligent.

At Atoyan Law, our skilled and seasoned personal injury lawyers are well-versed in premises liability law and the steps needed to secure compensation for injured clients in such circumstances. These are typically complex cases in which property insurers will fight hard to deny or devalue your claim. 

Without an attorney, you could face challenges designed to defeat you or make it difficult to prevail. However, with our law firm backing you, these companies are typically more amenable to settling fairly to avoid costly and time-consuming litigation by our skilled trial lawyers.

Trips, Slips & Falls in Los Angeles & Surrounding Areas

Negligence leading to slips, trips, and falls can occur in various circumstances. 

Common situations can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Wet or slippery surfaces: These are the most common cause of slips and falls. This includes freshly waxed or mopped floors, liquid spills, leaks, and icy or snowy outdoor walkways.
  • Uneven surfaces: Uneven surfaces include broken or irregular pavement or sidewalks, potholes, cluttered floors, loose floorboards or mats, and unannounced or hidden transitions from one type of flooring to another or an incline or decline in surface area.
  • Poor lighting: Inadequate lighting can make seeing obstacles or changes in the walking surface difficult, leading to trips and falls.
  • Lack of handrails: Staircases should always have sturdy handrails. A lack of handrails increases the risk of falls.
  • Broken or missing handrails or guardrails: Even if handrails or guardrails are generally present, if broken or missing where needed, this could lead to accidents.
  • Cords or wires: Electrical cords, computer cables, or wires left across walkways can easily trip someone.
  • Carpeting and mats: Torn carpeting, rugs, or mats with curled edges or holes can cause people to trip.
  • Clutter: Clutter in hallways, staircases, and walkways are common tripping hazards.
  • Open drawers or cabinets: Open drawers or cabinets in walkways can cause individuals to bump into them, stumble, or lose balance. 
  • Inadequate safety equipment: Lack of proper safety equipment, such as non-slip mats or safety signs, can increase the risk of falls.
  • Poor maintenance: Not fixing known issues like a loose piece of carpeting, a broken step, or a burnt-out light bulb can lead to accidents.
