Trip and Fall Accidents
If you have tripped and been injured on the property of another due to some dangerous condition, you may have grounds for a trip and fall case. Hidden hazards such as broken escalators, elevators, improper flooring, and poorly lit stairs can all cause injurious falls. These can take place inside or outside of the property. Trip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of premises liability cases. A business owner or proprietor has a duty to provide visitors with an adequate level of safety when they are on their property.
It is critical that you act quickly after an accident and gather the relevant data so that it can be used as evidence if necessary. This becomes increasingly important in a trip and fall case as the hazardous condition could be easily quickly resolved in order to avoid a claim after the accident. This may leave you without evidence of the condition, which will make it hard to prove it was the source of your injury. Contact a San Francisco personal injury attorney immediately so that your case can be reviewed and the necessary actions taken before it is too late.
