SAN DIEGO SLIP-AND-FALL AND TRIP-AND-FALL LAWYERS
Property owners are required by law to keep their premises safe for passersby and visitors. This includes sidewalks in residential neighborhoods, while the government has a responsibility to keep roadways and sidewalks free of hazards. If the government and private property owners do not keep their premises clear of dangers and serious injuries result, they can be held liable.
Salmu Law Firm has represented clients with trip and fall accidents involving:
- Slippery or uneven sidewalks, cobblestones or pavement
- Steeply sloping driveways
- Slippery floor surfaces or floor coverings from oil, grease, water, other liquids or food on the floor
- Uneven stairs or inadequate stair rails
- Tree roots
- Cords or wires on the ground
- Blocked store aisles
- Bridge construction hazards, including fallen debris
- Unsafe balconies or railings
- Poor lighting
TRIPPING ON UNEVEN PAVEMENT
Around 60 percent of slip, trip and fall accidents involve uneven pavement. It’s important to know that pedestrians injured on public sidewalks have just six months to file a claim before the statute of limitations expires.
