Injured on Unsafe Premises
Have you ever fallen so hard that it landed you in the hospital? Or were ever with a loved one who took a nasty slip and seriously hurt themselves as a result? Of course‚ it’s entirely possible that the accident was just an accident – a temporary loss of balance or tripping over your own feet. But what if there is more to the situation that simply “wrong place‚ wrong time”? What if another person could have prevented your fall? Someone like a building owner‚ or a property manager or a city supervisor‚ whose job it is to make sure a slip or a fall doesn’t happen on their property. In such instances they could be held liable for any damages sustained by you‚ a loved one or anyone else injured in a fall.
If you‚ or a loved one‚ have suffered injuries following a dangerous slip and fall accident‚ contact the Oceanside personal injury attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers to discuss your legal rights.

What Are Some Common Causes For Slip And Fall Accidents?
If you are reading this page‚ odds are that you or someone you know has experienced a nasty fall that was potentially the fault of another person. And as you already know‚ these kinds of accidents can happen anywhere‚ at anytime. Slip and fall accidents are also far more common than most people would imagine. It only takes one negligent landlord or building manager to create the dangerous conditions required for a slip and fall. Of course‚ being in Southern California‚ certain elements like snow or ice aren’t as common but there are still a number of different situations we often encounter‚ such as:
- Wet surface areas in department stores‚ malls and other public spaces
- Under-lit hallways and stairwells in apartment buildings
- Broken or uneven concrete along building walkways
- Collapsing or rotten steps in beach rental houses
- Poorly maintained surfaces in any public locale
