California Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers get bigger settlements for our clients

Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers - California Personal Injury LawyersAll slip and fall accidents are covered by negligence law and deal with the concept of premises liability. Property owners have a duty of care to see that their property is maintained in a safe condition. This includes insuring that the building has no structural defects or maintenance hazards that could cause an accident. Structural defects can include: loose floor mats, rugs, or tiles; water on the floor; poorly lighted stairs or steps; cracks or holes in sidewalks or parking lots. A plaintiff or claimant also has a duty to exercise reasonable care, so if any action of yours contributed to the accident, you may share in the negligence.

Lifted Sidewalks & Walkways, Improperly Maintained Business Facilities – Premises Liability

Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers - California Personal Injury LawyersEach year, more than 15,000 seniors are killed in falls and 2 million are treated in emergency rooms. Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries and the most common cause of serious fractures in older adults, including spine, hip, forearm, leg, ankle, pelvis, upper arm and hand.

In general terms, “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” accidents refer to accidents where a person is injured by slipping, or tripping, and falling due to a dangerous condition on the premises of public or private property. Such falls can happen inside or outside a building, and be caused by such conditions as bad flooring, wet floors, poorly lighted steps and curbs. Outdoors, a raised, uneven “toe-catcher” crack in and asphalt or concrete walkway or parking lot is very common.

It is your responsibility to prove that a hazard existed – DOCUMENT the cause of your injury

DOCUMENT the cause of your injury -  California Personal Injury LawyersIf you experience a slip and fall accident, you should try to determine what made you fall and if it could have been anticipated and prevented. If anyone watched you fall, be sure you get the names and addresses of all witnesses. Make written notes as soon as possible of the conditions in the area where you were injured. For instance, was the lighting poor, was there some substance that made you slip: loose tiles, carpet, uneven surfaces, wet spots, etc. If you did slip because of something on the floor, try to obtain a sample. If you have a camera on your person on in your car, try to get pictures of the area. Remember, most cell phones have built-in cameras. Take as many pictures as you can. Better to have extra pictures and good pictures in sharp focus than just a few. Report any such accident to the manager or owner and insist that they make a record of it just as you will record their name and the time of your discussion.

Remember, it is your responsibility to prove that a hazard existed and that it was the cause of your accident, so you need to take charge and document as many details as possible.

California Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers are expert in Premises Liability Cases

In order to make a successful premises liability claim, your personal injury attorney must prove that the accident was due to someone else’s mistake or negligence. Proving liability in a slip and fall accident is not always easy which is why it’s important for you to document the injury scene and then to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer who can further document the case before changes and repairs are put in place by the premises owners (in a good faith effort to protect other people) or by the premises owner to camouflage and hide the preexisting conditions so evade their responsibility.

Moreover, in the case of a slip fall accident, it also has to be proven that the victim was not responsible for causing their own injuries, which is commonplace by individuals who might be attempting to fraudulently sue a property owner.  Determining who is responsible in slip and fall accidents can be very difficult which is why it helps to have an experienced attorney’s help.  The clock is running. After being injured in a slip and fall accident, you only have a certain amount of time in which to file a personal injury claim so it is important to take action as soon as possible after the incident occurs.

If you have experienced a Slip and Fall injury that was not your fault, you should immediately contact an experienced California Personal Injury Lawyer for help!
