A slip and fall accident can happen to anyone, any time of year, and at any location imaginable.

TOP CAUSES OF SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS
Slip and fall accidents may be the result of negligence or clumsiness on the part of the victim, but most often, slip and falls occur because of dangerous conditions. Examples of hazards that can lead to slip and fall accidents include:
- Broken stairs;
- Depressions in walking areas;
- Broken elevators and escalators;
- Faulty or lacking handrails and railings;
- Uneven walking surfaces;
- Debris, wires, and other objects in walking areas;
- Spills of food and drink;
- Torn carpet;
- Falling objects; and
Because most of the above are hazards that could easily be corrected, the majority of slip and fall accidents are entirely preventable.
WHO’S LIABLE FOR A BELLFLOWER SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT?
If you have suffered a slip and fall accident on another’s property and if serious injuries have resulted, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for the harm that you have suffered. This is because a property owner owes a high duty of care to all those who enter their property; this duty is the duty to maintain the property in a safe condition, and to repair/correct any known hazards within a reasonable amount of time. Consider the following scenario:
You slip on a spill of milk in a grocery store aisle, suffering a traumatic brain injury and fracturing your elbow as a result. Video surveillance of the store shows that three employees passed the spill within a 30-minute time frame, yet none of them stopped to clean the spill or put up warning. As such, the store is held liable (for the employees’ actions based on the theory of vicarious liability) for its failure to remedy a hazard that was known or should have been known with a reasonable amount of time.
