Premises Liability Lawyers Representing Slip & Fall Accident Victims in La Mesa

Business owners and property managers are required to keep their property, including aisles, walkways, stairs, elevators, parking lots, etc., well-maintained and safe for public use. When a property owner fails to conduct reasonable inspections, make necessary repairs, or warn visitors about hazardous conditions like spilled liquids, slick surfaces, and blocked aisles, a serious accident can occur in only a moment’s notice. While accidents happen fast, the injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents and other premises liability cases can last a lifetime.

At Garmo & Garmo, LLP, our personal injury attorneys understand the laws governing premises liability, and how victims are unfairly blamed for slip and fall accidents. To claim someone is inordinately clumsy when they trip over a box left in a grocery store aisle is not kind or fair. We are here to help you obtain appropriate compensation after sustaining injuries in a slip and fall accident. To prevail on your premises liability claim, our attorneys will collect vital evidence to prove that:

  • The property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition.
  • The property owner did not fix or warn you about the dangerous condition.
  • You were injured and suffered damages because of the dangerous condition.

If you sustained an injury at a business, such as a grocery store or restaurant, the corporation is generally held accountable for the negligence of its managers, sales clerks, and other personnel who were tasked with inspecting the premises, cleaning up spills, and warning customers of slip and fall hazards.

After getting hurt in a slip and fall accident or as the result of another property-related hazard, you may be wondering who will be held responsible for your injuries (hopefully not the teenage stock boy making minimum wage). Under the doctrine known as “respondeat superior,” a business is liable for the actions of its employees, which means you most likely have a claim against a corporation and its insurance company to cover the cost of your injuries and damages.

However, the business owner or management may say they did nothing to cause your accident, and their insurer will certainly try to make that case. They might even say you caused your own accident, or, at a minimum, assert you were at least partly to blame. The business can also claim it was unaware of the dangerous condition.

Because businesses have many available defenses to premises liability claims, and many property hazards are quickly remedied, it is especially important to seek experienced legal representation to prove fault and get fair compensation.

Find out the difference experienced legal representation can make after you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall accident. Call Garmo & Garmo, LLP today at 619-441-2500 to schedule your free initial consultation.
