Proving Negligence after Falling on a Slippery Floor in San Diego

By Ross Jurewitz on September 9, 2011

An injury that occurs on a slippery floor can lead to surgery‚ physical therapy‚ and hefty medical bills. If you’ve been a victim of a property owner’s negligence‚ you should have a San Diego personal injury lawyer review your case. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

To be successful in a slip and fall claim‚ you’ll have to prove that the property owner was negligent. This means you must show that the property owner had a duty to maintain the premises and breached that duty. Then it must be proven that the breach of duty caused the accident‚ and the accident resulted in damages.

When the Floor is Slippery Property Owners Can Be Held Accountable

Property owners have a duty to warn others of dangerous conditions. If the floor is slippery‚ the property owner should post signs or rope off the area. They are also required to exercise reasonable care.

A safe environment should be maintained on the property to protect the public. If the dangerous condition is considered “open and obvious,” then the property owner won’t have a duty of care.

Your best bet is to meet with a San Diego personal injury lawyer after you’ve been injured on a slippery floor. A lawyer can determine whether the owner of the property was indeed negligent and help you take steps toward financial recovery.
