Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Orange County, CA Law Firm Putting Your Needs First

"Slip and fall" is the technical term for when a person suffers an injury after he or she slips, falls, trips or stumbles on someone else's property. A slip and fall accident can occur anywhere in California - on broken floor tiles in a department store, on polished hotel stairs, puddles on a park path, or a neighbor's oil-covered driveway.

If you slipped and fell on public property or any property you do not own, the homeowner, business owner or property owner could be held liable for your injuries, including medical care, surgery and physical therapy for your injuries. That's because slip and fall accidents fall under premises accident laws in California.

If you can't work after a severe fall in Southern California, the responsible party may have to pay your lost wages as well. If you've been hurt because you slipped and fell, call Orange County slip and fall accident attorney Daniel C. Carlton. The legal team at the Law Offices of Daniel C. Carlton can help pursue a claim with the guilty property owner's premises liability insurance on your behalf so you can get the care and support you deserve.
