If you rent a house, apartment, or condo, it is reasonable to expect your landlord to take care of his or her part of the bargain. For most renters, this means the landlord, property owner, or property manager should keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition and respond to potential hazards within a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately, many people are injured in slip-and-fall accidents on rental properties in Orange County every year, and the injuries are sometimes very severe.

As an Orange County injury lawyer, I have seen many different slip-and-fall cases, and the issues that cause a trip and fall can be very diverse. As an idea, here are just some common reasons people file slip-and-fall injury claims in Orange County:
