If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, contact a California slip and fall attorney at our law firm to learn about your legal rights. We have been practicing in the field of slip and fall accidents for a long time, and we know what it takes to win your case.
As implied by the name, a slip and fall accident happens when someone slips on the floor and falls due to a dangerous condition. This dangerous condition could be any condition that poses a foreseeable danger to people. Under California personal injury law, victims of such accidents are entitled to collect for their damages from all responsible parties. As an example, let us say you went to the store and the floors were wet, and you slipped and fell on the floor, injuring yourself. Another example would be if you were walking on the street and you tripped and fell due to uneven pavement or an opening in the ground. In both cases, you could sue the negligent parties who had a duty to remedy the situation but failed to do so for whatever reason. In the first case, the store had a duty to inspect the isles to make sure the floors are dry and safe to walk on. All stores in Los Angeles, and the rest of California, have a duty to regularly monitor and inspect their premises to make sure they are safe. This includes inspecting for wet floors and fallen merchandise. For instance, if a child is at Walmart and he drops a toy in the isle, it is the store’s duty to pick up the toy so that it does not pose a trip hazard to the public. If the store fails to do that, they can be liable for someone tripping and falling. Other causes of a slip and fall accident include poor lighting, missing or broken handrails, and torn carpeting.
For every trip and fall lawsuit, as well as slip and fall lawsuit, an attorney is necessary to receive the maximum compensation for your damages. As you may know, insurance companies have various departments whose job it is to fight lawsuits. They will do anything in their power to weaken your case to minimize the amount they have to pay. If you do not understand all the legal complexities of such cases, you will stand no chance against these huge insurance companies. Oftentimes, these companies will try to trick plaintiffs to settle for a really low amount, and get a release of liability form signed. Once you sign that form, you permanently release the liable parties from liability and you will never be able to go back and claim more damages from them. Therefore, whenever someone is injured in a slip and fall accident, we highly recommend that they speak to a lawyer. A personal injury lawyer who specializes in this field will know what to do, and what not to do, to receive the maximum compensation.
