What You Need To Know About Slip & Fall Accidents

Your Own Carelessness Vs. Negligence

Sometimes, for slip and fall victims, it can be difficult to determine if their trip accident was from their own carelessness or the actual negligence of the property owner. For the owner of a property to be legally responsible for any of the injuries you suffered from a slip or trip on their premises, one of the following must be true:

  • The property owner or a property staff member was directly responsible for the spill, worn spot, or dangerous slippery surface that caused the slip and fall.
  • The property owner or a property staff member knew about the dangerous and slippery surface and instead of fixing it, did nothing about it.
  • The property owner or a property staff member, as “reasonable” people taking care of the property, should have known about the dangerous surface and would have removed and repaired it upon discovery.

Liability in the example cases above are often judged by common sense and fault is determined under the circumstances of how careful the property owner was in taking steps to ensure the property was safe.

Another important aspect that comes into play when filing a slip and fall negligence claim rests on whether the defendant acted reasonably. Our Oakland slip and fall accident attorneys want to focus on if the property owner has made regular, thorough, and reasonable efforts to keep the property safe and clean.

Of course, our lawyers also want to take into account when building your slip and fall case that your own carelessness was not a factor in your injury, which sometimes happens. Your own carelessness will affect the outcome of the claim.
