Slip and Fall Attorney in San Diego
Leading Causes of Personal Injury
Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of personal injury in the United States. In fact, according to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), slip and fall accidents account for nearly 8 million hospital visits per year and are the leading cause of lost days in the workplace. Incidentally, as age increases, so does the likelihood of suffering serious injury from a slip and fall. With all this said, a simple slip, trip, or fall could lead to great damages including lost work hours, lost wages, displaced hips, or fatal head trauma. In the worst cases, even wrongful death could result.
Slip and fall accident cases can be especially complicated because proving who is at fault often falls into legal ambiguity. When you have been injured or hurt on another person's property, I understand that you feel wronged and that your injuries could have been perfectly avoidable or preventable. As the slip and fall accident attorney at the Law Offices of Roy Kohler in San Diego, I have been helping personal injury victims for 20 years, and am prepared to take on your case. Not only am I well versed in the legal complexities that surround slip and fall accidents, but I am also personally dedicated to using my knowledge successfully on behalf of my clients.
Who is responsible for a slip and fall incident?
Under California law, owners are responsible for the safe upkeep of their property. By employing reasonable care in the maintenance and management of their premises, conditions that pose risk or harm to others can be easily avoided. Should any hazards arise, it is the property owner's responsibility to warn tenants or guests of the hazard or completely remove the hazard in order to create a safe and secure environment once again.
In order for a slip and fall attorney to determine legal liability for the injuries that you have sustained in a slip and fall accident, property owner negligence must be proven. I work to create the strongest case on your behalf. If any of the following is true of your accident, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim:
- The property owner knew of a dangerous condition on the premises, but did nothing about it
- The property owner caused a hazard to make the premises dangerous
- Had a property owner used "common sense," a dangerous condition would have been repaired
