If you or a loved one has been seriously injured due to a fall on someone else’s property, you might be able to seek injury compensation with the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer. It is critical to consult with an accomplished lawyer in California as soon as possible after the fall. Evidence can disappear and property owners may attempt to cover up their negligence before a lawyer with a critical eye can examine the facts.

Premises Liability: Slips, Trips And Falls
We represent the victims of falls on private property throughout California, including San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles and San Diego. We also have experience with government liability cases, which should only be handled by the most experienced of attorneys. Proving liability against a public entity is an immensely difficult task blocked by a host of immunities built into the law.
In California, private property owners are held to a comparative negligence statute, which means a plaintiff may still be awarded injury compensation even if he or she was partially responsible for the accident, but that financial recovery may be reduced by the percentage of negligence for which he or she is found to be responsible.
Our law firm is committed to obtaining the maximum compensation our clients deserve. We fight the aggressive defense put forth by business owners, landlords, property management companies, insurance companies and others.
Whether you or a loved one was injured in a parking lot, grocery store, shopping mall, resort, hotel, home or on someone’s private property, you have legal options.
Significant Fall Accidents Cases
- $4.55 million recovery for a 40-year-old woman who tripped over a height differential in a curb in a motel parking lot where she was renting a room. The financial award was the result of medical negligence on behalf of the doctors who initially treated the plaintiff and aggravated the injury, causing paralysis.
- $800,000 recovery for a 56-year-old woman who tripped and fell on a sidewalk slab and dislocated her hip while running. An opinion from the treating orthopedist stated that the plaintiff would require two total knee replacements in the future.
