It will be necessary to determine who should be held liable in order to file a slip and fall accident claim in Sacramento. If your accident occurred at work, your employer should cover your injuries through workers’ compensation benefits. If your accident occurred on someone else’s property, it will be necessary to prove that the property owner, an employee at the property or some other party was responsible for causing the accident.
