San Francisco Trip and Fall Lawyer

Assisting victims injured by dangerous property conditions

Like slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents often result in serious, debilitating  injuries, including head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, spine injuries, and fractures and broken bones. In many instances, a trip and fall injury may even be more severe than injury caused by slipping because of the angle and force of the fall. When a dangerous property condition that is hidden or unexpected causes you to trip and fall, the San Francisco trip and fall lawyers at the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel work diligently and relentlessly to get you the compensation you need.

Types of trip and fall accidents

Our seasoned father-daughter team of Bay Area lawyers offers conscientious assistance to clients injured in trip and fall accidents. We are familiar with the many causes of such accidents, including:

  • Poorly maintained streets or sidewalks
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Tree roots in sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Uneven pavement
  • Spilled produce
  • Garbage spills
  • Clutter
  • Floor holes and wall openings
  • Unprotected edges
  • Electric cords and wiring
  • Torn carpeting or uneven floors
  • Broken stairs
  • Unstable surfaces
  • Unsafely positioned ladders
  • Inadequate or dim lighting
  • Construction site accidents
  • Workplace accidents

The greatest number of trip and fall injuries occurs in the health services and wholesale and retail industries, while the greatest percentage of fatal trip and fall accidents occur in the construction industry, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Most of these trip and fall accidents are caused by hazards that could be eliminated. Healthcare support staff such as nurses and various cleaning, maintenance, transportation, construction and extraction workers are particularly at risk for falls and injuries. Visitors to any busy with which they are not familiar are also vulnerable.

Liability for trip and fall accidents

Many hazardous conditions can be easily prevented through adequate maintenance, safety measures and warnings. When a property owner or business fails to reasonably maintain the property or warn of known dangers and you are injured because of these unnoticed defects, our attorneys believe you should be fairly compensated for your injuries and losses, including your medical costs, lost wages, any long term loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering. We aggressively pursue just compensation from negligent property owners through litigation or through settlement negotiation with insurance companies.
