Slips & Falls
Property owners are required by law to keep their premises safe for passers-by and visitors. This includes sidewalks in residential neighborhoods. The government has a responsibility to keep roadways and sidewalks free of hazards. If the government and private property owners do not keep their premises clear of dangers, serious injuries can result.
McCormack & Erlich handles premises liability cases involving any issue, including: Slippery or uneven sidewalks; Potholes; Slippery floor surfaces or floor coverings; Oil, grease, water, liquids, or food on the floor; Uneven stairs or inadequate stair rails; Tree roots, cords, or wires on the ground; Blocked store aisles; Falling objects; Bridge construction hazards, including falling debris; Unsafe balconies or railings; Poor lighting
In a recent case, McCormack & Erlich obtained a $300,000 settlement from a San Francisco store in which our client slipped and fell. Mr. McCormack demonstrated that a store employee negligently left an unopened box in the aisle, which caused our client to slip and fall, resulting in serious injuries.
