Our team will conduct a complete investigation into the incident, work to determine the liability of the property owner or other responsible parties, and help secure full compensation for your losses.

How Do Slip And Fall And Trip And Fall Accidents Occur?

Data available from the National Floor Safety Institute shows that around one million people seek treatment in emergency rooms each year across the country due to fall accidents. Slip (or trip) and fall accidents occur in a wide variety of ways, and these incidents are often caused by the negligence of the property owners or their employees.

At Mancini & Associates, our team has experience helping clients who have been injured due to the following:

  • Wet or uneven walking surfaces: The most common causes of slip and fall and trip and fall accidents revolve around unsafe pedestrian walkway areas. This can include slip/trip and falls that occur due to:
    • Recently mopped or waxed floors
    • Cluttered floors
    • Moisture collection on the floor
    • Loose floorboards
    • Loose carpets or mats
    • Defective or broken sidewalks
    • Protruding tree roots
    • Torn carpeting
    • Low lying obstacles or cords
    • Poorly maintained staircases
    • Loose pavement or potholes in parking lots or crosswalks
  • Improper staff training: If employees are not properly trained to recognize and remediate slip and fall or trip and fall hazards, this significantly increases hazards for guests or visitors.
  • Failure to Follow and Document Proper Maintenance Procedures: If the area at issue is not properly maintained, the chances of a slip and fall or trip and fall accident significantly increase.
  • Unsafe workplace conditions: Employees regularly sustain slip and fall or trip and fall accidents while performing their job-related duties. Every employer is responsible for providing safe working conditions for their employees. The owner of the premises/job site may be liable as well.

How Long Do You Have To File A Slip And Fall Or Trip And Fall Accident Claim?

It is important that slip and fall victims understand that they have a limited amount of time to file their claim in court and the time limits depend on the location of the incident. The California personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date injury occurs. This gives a slip and fall accident victim a two-year window with which to file a claim against the alleged negligent property owner. However, claims brought against government entities (such as a county or city) may have a substantially shorter window—as short as six months from the date of the incident.
