Determining Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident

This slip and fall accident may require a San Marcos lawyerSome people who suffer injuries in a slip and fall accident immediately blame themselves for being clumsy.  However, unsafe conditions are often the fault of the property owner, not a visitor. If you have been injured on someone’s dangerous property, our experienced slip and fall lawyer in San Marcos can help you determine who is responsible for your injuries and seek the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Premises liability law stipulates that homes, businesses, apartment buildings and other spaces must be kept safe for public use. When determining liability in a slip and fall case, our attorney will investigate:

  • The cause of the danger
  • Whether the property owner or person responsible for maintenance should have known about the hazard
  • Maintenance and safety measures, if any
  • The existence and compliance with safety protocols


Depending on unique circumstances, many people can potentially be held liable in a dangerous premises lawsuit. For example, someone who owns a shop in a mall could fail to warn customers about a wet floor that has been made slippery due to a leaky pipe. However, that pipe may be the responsibility of the mall management.

If more than one person is culpable for an unsafe condition, our Zev Rubinstein can uncover the responsible parties and seek compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
