Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their property safe from hazards and dangerous conditions. If they do not, you run the risk of being hurt while on their property.
Are these accidents preventable? Sadly, the answer is often yes.
Slip and fall accidents in San Bernardino occur when someone trips, slips, falls or is otherwise injured on someone else’s property. They can happen on both public and private property. When a slip and fall accident occurs on property owned by another, it is possible that the owner could be held liable for your damages.
While some accidents may only produce minor injuries, there are thousands of cases that lead to catastrophic injuries, or even death.
If you were injured at the nail salon as a result of the owner’s failure to take care of his or her property and to remove dangerous conditions that caused you to fall, then you have the right to receive compensation for the injuries and losses you sustained as a result of the fall. Seek an experienced personal injury lawyer to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
You deserve to be reasonably protected from harm while shopping or entering a business. Some of the more common conditions that cause injury include:
- Improper maintenance

- Spills on the floor
- No warning of a property’s hazardous conditions
- Broken sidewalks
If you have been injured as the result of a property owner’s negligence, you may be able to recover damages with the help of an experienced personal injury attorney who has been successful in slip and fall accidents.
