Palm Springs Slip & Fall Attorneys

A "slip and fall" accident occurs when you are injured due to hazardous conditions on someone's property. Slip and fall accidents are an aspect of premises liability. The owner of the premises is held responsible for the dangerous conditions that exist at the time of the accident. Slip and fall accidents usually stem from negligent acts.

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to seek medical treatment and consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Liljegren Law Group will use its expertise to pursue legal action against the negligent party and fight for your rights so that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can be traced to a lack of maintenance and care of the property. The owners and managers of the premises are responsible for ensuring the safety of visitors and guests. When they do not fulfill their duty, it increases the probability of serious injuries occurring. Slip and fall accidents are often attributed to:

  • Failure to place clearly visible notices or signs warning of dangerous conditions on the property
  • Improper maintenance of premises
  • Wet or slippery surfaces
  • Uneven flooring
  • Holes in the floor
  • Obstructions on the property that are not - but should be - sealed off

Slip and Fall Accident Injuries

A person may feel a great deal of pain as soon as the fall occurs. Sometimes a person may feel fine at the time of the accident, only to feel intense soon thereafter. Either way, a manager or owner of the property should be notified of the incident right away. An immediate request for medical assistance should also be made in order to protect yourself from exacerbating any potential injuries that were sustained. Common injuries in a slip and fall accident are:

  • Foot injuries
  • Ankle injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Fractures
  • Bruises
