Slip and Fall Accidents in Contra Costa County
When a property owner fails to keep his or her premises safe and a visitor gets injured, the owner can be held liable for the accident. By law, property owners must ensure that they do due diligence to ensure their premises are safe for anyone who might be visiting or passing by.
Common Slip and Fall Injuries
Accidents related to unsafe premises usually fall under the category of "slip-and-falls" or "trip-and-falls." Injuries can include:
