Slip-and-fall accident may spark premises liability claim

When people enter a store, they generally expect to shop in relatively safe conditions. Unfortunately, sometimes things do not go as planned and they end up suffering injuries in slip-and-fall accidents instead.

Here are a few critical steps to take immediately following a slip-and-fall accident in California.  

First, directly after the accident, the victim would be wise to pursue medical attention right away. This is important because a doctor can document the victim's injuries appropriately.
