Thousands of people in the East Bay and the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area counties are injured each year when they slip or trip and fall. Slip and fall accidents are typically a result of:
- Tripping or slipping on a foreign object or slipping on a substance
- Tripping over an impediment while walking
- Tripping in an area that is poorly lit
- An unexpected failure or hole on the surface of where you are walking
In California, property owners are liable for injuries on their premises if there is a defect that causes a person to fall, or if the property owner knew or should have known of a dangerous condition and failed to take prompt action.
At the Law Office of Thomas C. Tagliarini, our East Bay slip and fall lawyer has represented clients who have been injured from an accident for 30 years. We are experienced in proving the property owners’ negligence by showing they have violated a law.
