San Francisco Slip-and-Fall Lawyer

Property owners and managers are responsible for maintaining safe premises for occupants, customers and guests. When a property owner's negligence results in a slip-and-fall injury, he or she can be held liable under a legal theory called premises liability.

The Law Offices of Linda Ross provides skilled, caring legal help to people who sustained slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall injuries due to the negligence of a property owner. San Francisco attorney Linda Ross has been practicing at our same Union Street location for more than 35 years. She has been so successful as a personal injury lawyer because of her compassion for injured people and her driven, intelligent strategy.

At The Law Offices of Linda Ross, we offer free initial phone or office consultations and handle trips, slips and falls on a contingency fee basis. Call us now at 415-692-7689 or contact us online.

Were You Injured in a Slip-and-Fall or Trip-and-Fall Accident?

Attorney Linda Ross is educated about the measures property owners can take to prevent dangerous conditions. For example, property owners should ensure that walking surfaces are even, stairways have handrails and adequate lighting exists in all walking areas. She knows how often these safety measures are overlooked and the many types of injuries that people can sustain.

We handle trip-and-fall and slip-and-fall injuries arising from:

  • Uneven treads and risers on improperly designed stairs
  • Inadequate handrails/no handrails
  • Code violations
  • Construction defects
  • Poorly maintained sidewalks
  • Uneven pavement

If you are able, take pictures of the hazard. It is not uncommon for the property owner to attempt to cover up the hazardous condition after the accident.

Cases involving spills in grocery stores, restaurants and other businesses can be difficult, because it must be proven that the management neglected a known hazard or falsified cleaning logs. We were successful in a slip-and-fall claim against Safeway. We proved that the store did not have enough employees on duty to comply with maintenance and safety inspection regulations.

The Law Offices of Linda Ross seeks full, fair compensation for injuries sustained in trips, slips and falls such as:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Face/dental injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

We have also handled wrongful death lawsuits for fatal trip-and-fall accidents.
