San Luis Obispo Slip-And-Fall Accident Attorneys
Slipping and tripping are among the most common ways an individual can become injured on another party’s property. From dangerous sidewalks or uneven surfaces, to spilled liquids, and faulty stairs or hand rails — there are countless causes of these painful accidents. Whether you suffered broken bones, a concussion or any other serious injury as a result of your slip/trip-and-fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
At the Law Office of Daniel J. O’Neill, we focus solely on personal injury cases, including claims of premises liability. Our founding attorney has more than 35-plus years of legal experience and maintains a strong track record of helping clients throughout California obtain the settlements and verdicts they deserve.
Property Laws And Fall Injuries In California
All property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises free from known hazards and must correct dangerous conditions as soon as they are known. If they fail to maintain a safe property and as a result, you are injured, they may be held liable for the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
The difficulty with proving these cases lies in proving that the property owner did not monitor and address the safety hazards in a timely manner. When you work with our law firm, we dig deep into the case evidence to disprove the defense. Our research includes reviewing video footage, talking to witnesses and employees and investigating maintenance records. Backed by an in-depth knowledge of slip/trip-and-fall laws, attorney O’Neill is usually able to negotiate favorable settlements without proceeding to trial.
Our firm handles a wide range of slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents, including those occurring in:
- Shopping malls
- Apartment buildings
- Private residences
- Parking lots and parking garages
- City street and sidewalks
