When is a Riverside property owner responsible for injuries sustained when I tripped and fell?

Not every trip, slip, or fall that happens on someone else’s property is necessarily the fault of the property owner, and the circumstances in many of these kinds of cases make it difficult for the injured victim to determine whether it’s appropriate to pursue an injury claim against the property owner or just give in to paying medical expenses out of their own pockets. If you’re having trouble determining your legal rights and options after a fall, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for personalized answers about your situation. In the meantime, here are some things to consider when determining if the property owner should be held responsible for your injuries:

  • Responsibility can fall on other parties, and the property owner may not be the only potentially responsible party. A quick review with an experienced attorney can help you quickly identify any additional responsible parties.
  • Just like property owners across the rest of the state, Riverside property owners are responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe environment for visitors and customers. If you can prove that the property owner knew or should have known about a dangerous condition, there is a good chance that you could successfully pursue an injury claim.
  • Accidents happen despite the efforts of property owners. If the owner took reasonable action to address the problem, you may not have a legal case against him or her.

Small details can make a big difference in the outcome of your claim for fall injuries, but our Riverside legal team is ready to offer a thorough and personalized review of your situation.
