What is A “Duty of Care?”

In California, property owners owe a “duty of care” to their visitors. When they breach that duty, this is known as “negligence.” Evidence of negligence may include surveillance footage, photos of the hazard that caused your slip and fall, eyewitness deposition, the incident report, records of similar accidents occurring in the past, and building maintenance records. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall, it is extremely important to act quickly so you can properly preserve any evidence that the other party breached the duty of care. In slip and fall cases that involve physical evidence like a torn carpet or a spill, another party can (and might) try to erase any sign that the accident happened. To mitigate this risk, you can:

  • Inform the property owner or manager.
  • If applicable, fill out an incident report.
  • Contact the police to secure an accident report.
  • Take photos and videos of the accident scene.
  • Record the names and contact information of the property owner, tenant, or manager on-site at the time of the accident.
  • Ask eyewitnesses for their names and contact information.
  • Collect and preserve the shoes that the victim was wearing at the time of the fall.
