Premises Liability/"Slip and Fall" Cases

For more than thirty years, Janssen Malloy LLP has been protecting persons in our community injured by slips, trips and falls caused by negligently maintained premises.  All property owners, including individuals, businesses, and the government, have a duty to keep their premises safe and free from dangerous conditions. This duty applies to sidewalks, store aisles, parking lots, roadways and other locations.  If the property owners do not keep their premises clear of dangers, and serious injuries result, you have a right to recover for your injuries.

Janssen Malloy LLP's lawyers  help people in Humboldt County and the North Coast with  cases  involving:
  • Dangerous parking lots, with uneven surfaces or potholes
  • Stairways with defects on the surface or lack of adequate rails
  • Slippery floor ways or blocked aisles
  • Tree roots
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Defective decks or railways 
Recent successful case results include:
  1. Settlement of approximately $2,000,000 for senior citizen who fell in Eureka business and fractured her pelvis, which led to her death soon thereafter.   
  2. $300,000 settlement for a woman who suffered a traumatic knee injury (requiring a knee replacement surgery) when a rotten bench collapsed beneath her at a fast food restaurant.
  3. Large Confidential Settlement against the City of Eureka for failing to properly mark steep step leading to fall and fractured wrist, leading to post traumatic arthritis. 
  4. $250,000 settlement for a client who suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident in a local Eureka parking lot with an uneven surface near a disabled parking space with poor lighting.

We conduct a thorough investigation with lighting and engineering experts to help us systematically prepare your case for trial.
