California Slip and Fall Accident Claims One Man’s Life

September 9, 2013 The California Slip and Fall Lawyers with Berg Injury Lawyers explain that dangerous falls can happen anywhere. In fact, data shows that roughly eight million hospital emergency room visits are attributed to such accidents each year. To put into perspective just how common such accidents are and the serious ramifications they can have, a man was killed this past Sunday at an NFL football game being held at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California. Reports indicate the incident occurred at roughly 1:30 p.m., when the man slipped and fell on a sidewalk surrounding the field. According to an article from The Washington Post, emergency crews attempted to aid and revive the victim until an ambulance could arrive, but the man died a short time later. Such an incident can leave many wondering who is responsible. Berg Injury Lawyers’ team of California Personal Injury Attorneys explains determining liability for such an accident can often be a complex process. They add that property owners have a responsibility to ensure the safety of visitors on the land. Failure to do so may result in claims of negligence being filed against a property owner. The firm can sympathize with the difficulties that can be associated with processing the death of a loved one and would like to send their deepest condolences to the family of the victim.
