If you are a visitor on the property of another, certain laws regulate the safety standards that must be upheld to maintain proper security against harmful accidents. If another owns property where you are injured, they may be held responsible for the damages you incur. This would require payment of compensation for damages. A law called premises liability law is used to determine if the manager or property owner is at fault. A qualified and knowledgeable Riverside slip and fall attorney would be able to help you provide the proper evidence to prove that the negligent party had not taken proper precautions and this contributed to or caused your injury.
There is a difference between a slip and fall case and a trip and fall case. In a trip and fall case, the victim may trip over an object, protrusion, piece of equipment or something that may be a safety hazard for others. In a slip and fall case the safety hazard may be oily ground, slippery ground, weather conditions, or something similar. A slip/trip and fall case can occur at work, in a commercial area, or any other property.
If a property owner has failed to maintain his/her property in such a manner as to create a dangerous condition that is directly related to the injury or damage of the victim, a slip and fall or trip and fall case must be initiated..
