Slip or Trip and Fall Accident Lawyer Encino CA
You may be under the impression that if you slipped or tripped, resulting in a fall while visiting a retail establishment, restaurant, market, office building, apartment building, public property, public park, or private residence, it is your fault and there is no action you can take. Although slip or trip and fall accidents can indeed happen anywhere, in many cases, it is true that the individual or entity who failed to maintain the area free of hazards or adequate warnings can be held liable. This is because a property owner, management company, and lessee has a responsibility to their visitors and guests to keep the property free from dangerous conditions. When this duty is not fulfilled, the property owner, management company, and lessee could be at fault and, therefore, legally liable for the injuries and other losses incurred by visitors and guests.
