Can I sue for being injured by a falling tree or branch?

California Premises Liability Lawyer - doctor talking to patient in-house

While every case is different, it is possible you could have a valid personal injury lawsuit after being struck and harmed by a falling tree or a falling limb. The bottom line is if a person or entity is responsible for your accident in some significant way, they could be responsible for damages, including medical bills, lost wages, and other costs and losses. If you’re unsure of where your case stands, consult with a California premises liability lawyer.

Could it have been prevented?

In the case of an accident involving a falling tree or branch, it is important to know whether the accident could or should have been prevented. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Was it obvious the tree was a danger?
  • Did the property owner have information about the tree being a danger?
  • Did the property owner take any measures to prevent an accident?
  • Was the accident victim acting in a way which caused the tree to fall or contributed to its falling?
  • Had an accident like this occurred in the recent past?

Because of the height and weight of large trees, a falling tree or tree branch can result in catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, broken bones, and more. If you were seriously harmed in a tree falling accident while on someone else’s property, we encourage you to speak with a California premises liability lawyer about your case.
