Recovering on Behalf of Victims of Slip & Fall Accidents
The Ontario, California premises liability attorneys at Moga Law Firm represent victims of slip and fall accidents, and also handle cases arising from dangerous property conditions and failures to provide adequate security.
Slip & Fall Accidents and Dangerous Property Conditions
Among the most common types of premises liability cases are claims arising out of “slips and falls” and “trips and falls.” Many people do not realize how serious a slip and fall accident can be until they or a loved one sustains an injury while simply going about day-to-day activities. These injuries can often alter a person’s entire life, causing loss of employment, loss of mobility, enormous medical bills, and even permanent pain and suffering and disability.
Liability in slip and fall or trip and fall cases arises from a property owner’s failure to maintain a premises in a safe manner. Some of the reasons a property owner may be held responsible for a slip and fall or trip and fall accident include:
- Failure to remove objects from the floor, such as fallen merchandise in a store
- Failure to repair defects on the property, such as a broken step or missing handrail
- Failure to appropriately design the premises
- Failure to warn about a dangerous condition on the property
- Failure to remove or improperly removing water or other substances on the floor
Failure to Provide Adequate Security
In some cases, negligent and/or inadequate security in parking structures, garages, or stairwells may give rise to a premises liability claim if the property owner knew or had reason to know of dangerous criminal activity taking place on the premises. Failure to install appropriate lighting or warn patrons of potential safety risks may be the basis for a personal injury claim if it enabled an assault to occur on the property.
