Slip and Falls

California Bay Area Lawyer

Property owners must take responsibility for their negligence. They cannot have obvious hazards on their property that cause people to slip, fall, and hurt themselves. If they do, they may be liable for all consequences, including pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, etc.

Attorney Michael A. Brown has spent more than 35 years in personal injury law, and knows how to help victims of slip and fall accidents. He can fight for anyone who has suffered a slip and fall in the Peninsula of the California Bay Area, including San Jose, Fremont, Sunnyvale, Redwood City, and more.

What is Slip and Fall Litigation?

Slips and falls come under the legal category of "premises liability," which encompasses personal injury litigation involving negligent property owners. Slip and fall litigation can involve a wide range of issues, including:

  • Stores with wet or slippery floors
  • Parking lots with holes in the pavement
  • Rental properties in dangerous states of disrepair
  • Merchandise falling from store shelves
These cases vary dramatically. In one case handled by our attorney, a middle aged man was grocery shopping when he slipped on a piece of lettuce and fell to the floor, suffering permanent spinal injuries. During the litigation, Mr. Adams went to mediation and obtained a substantial settlement for his client.

In other one of Mr. Adams' cases, his client was an elderly woman who, while walking past a grocery store, tripped on the corner of an unsafely configured watermelon display case, suffering serious back injuries. Mr. Adams filed suit and obtained a good settlement for her shortly before trial.
