Slip and fall accidents can happen where and when we least expect it. The negligence of property owners in safely maintaining the areas of foot traffic can result in injury and sadly even death. These poorly maintained areas can be found in private buildings, private walkways, and businesses throughout Los Angeles. But they are also encountered in public spaces.

Hazards Are Common and Can Be Dangerous
According to the Los Angeles Times, the city has approximately 5,000 miles of bad sidewalk in disrepair. This figure represents a full 42% of total sidewalks. The condition of these public walkways are often so bad that they are obvious and easy to avoid. But much of the time the problem could go unseen by a pedestrian, causing a trip and fall with serious injuries.
Angelinos need to be cautious when walking through the hazards of their city streets and also when on private property. In addition to tripping on poorly maintained walkways, slipping on spilled liquids can also cause great injury and entitle you to compensation.
The frequency and seriousness of these incidents may be surprising. They represent the primary cause of days lost from work. Far from being minor accidents, fractures are present in at least 5% of falls and more than 17,000 people die from slip or fall accidents in the U.S. every year.
A slip and fall (sometimes called a premises liability case) varies widely based on ownership, the type of hazard, and the injuries sustained. Far from being constant, personal injury laws regarding premises liability are ever-changing. What is constant, however, is the need for recourse after an accident.
If you have fallen as a result of one of these hazards, protect your rights by speaking to one of our Los Angeles attorneys. Call now at 1-855-638-5739.
