Have You Suffered a Slip & Fall Injury?
Dangerous conditions exist all over Lancaster, from slippery surfaces to broken stairs. If you have been the victim of a slip and fall, you may have suffered devastating injuries while shopping, visiting government buildings, or visiting a friend at their apartment.
Slips and falls can result in broken bones, burns, head injuries and much more, leading to high medical bills that you shouldn’t have to be responsible for.
Here at Kuzyk Law, we can get justice for you and hold the responsible party accountable for those dangerous conditions. Whether you were mugged due to inadequate security or you tripped over a neglected sidewalk, these types of cases arise from something called “premises liability.” This places the responsibility of up-keeping safe conditions squarely on the shoulders of property owners. You deserve to be safe as you go about your daily business at the grocery store or strolling along downtown.
If that safety has been violated, you are entitled to compensation. Consult a Lancaster slip and fall attorney right away, and protect your rights immediately.

California law is clear when it states that the owner of a property, such as a shopping center, office building, apartment building or other property, has an obligation to provide reasonable care to keep the premises safe for visitors.
For example, apartment owners must provide safe conditions for its tenants and guests. Store owners have a certain degree of responsibility to protect the safety of their customers.
This means that property owners can be held accountable for a slip and fall or other accident that directly resulted from their failure to provide reasonably safe conditions. As the victim, you may be entitled to a monetary award that will give you peace of mind as you face mounting medical and therapy bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
The attorneys at Kuzyk Law have been handling these types of cases for more than 40 years. We’ve seen it all.
First and foremost, it must be determined if the property owner or tenant had actual knowledge of the dangerous condition. If property owners don’t properly inspect their buildings, for example, they can be held accountable for failing to inspect or properly maintain the premises.
We may be able to prove that the hazardous location was not inspected within a reasonable amount of time. We can also research if the landlord has received complaints about a dangerous or hazardous condition and failed to address the issue. Serious liability issues can result from neglect of a dangerous condition that later led to a personal injury.
There are countless types of premises liability accidents, and they don’t all have to do with slipping and falling. They can involve other tragic events like drowning as well – anything that results from the neglect of the property owner. Here are some examples:
- Falling down broken stairs
- Slipping on wet surfaces
- Drowning in a pool
- Suffering burns from a fire or explosion
- Sprains, strains, fractures, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage due to uneven pavement or walkways, obstructions or obstacles, or falling objects
- Sustaining a dog bite
- Lacerations from broken glass
- Falling from a roof
- Being mugged or assaulted due to lack of security
- Falls at shopping malls, grocery stores, government buildings, commercial facilities, theatres, apartments or a private home
If any of these instances has happened to you or a loved one, you may be entitled to compensation. Don’t assume that your insurance company will provide you with the payout you need to recover. It’s well known that they operate on a standard payout model of providing the bare minimum for their insured. That’s because they’re profit-driven rather than people-driven.
The attorneys here at Kuzyk Law can get you the financial support you need to cover anything from time away from work, lengthy hospitalizations, and complex surgeries to physical therapy, chiropractic care, and rehabilitation. With 22 percent of falls resulting in more than 31 days of missed work, can you afford to lose your paycheck even for this long?
Either in court or through settlement, we’ll prove that the negligence of the property owner or manager contributed to your accident.
