What You Should Know About Trip, Slip and Fall Accidents in California.
Fall accidents cause serious injuries annually. However, not all fall accidents are legally actionable. You can therefore pursue a claim only if the fall occurred on someone else’s property, and due to their negligence. If that is the case, then those fall injury victims can recover compensation. Moreover, common causes of trip or slip and fall accidents include:
- Narrow walkways;
- Uneven flooring;
- Wet floors;
- Hazardous conditions in public areas that are not adequately illuminated or marked;
- Litter (like cigarette butts), broken glass, nails and other objects jutting from the ground that create unsafe surfaces for walking;
- Unsafe hazardous conditions, like cracks in the pavement, manhole covers that do not flush with the ground, and other conditions;
- Unsafe staircases & railings;
- Inadequate security lighting;
- Dangerous obstructions, like hanging tree branches, unsafe power lines and low-wired telephone cables; and
- Improper disposal of waste materials that can lead to hazardous areas for people walking by.
Of course, if you have been seriously injured after a fall accident on someone else’s property, do not wait; call 949-404-4826 to speak to a slip and fall lawyer. We offer free consultations to inform you about your rights.
Trip, Slip and Fall Accident Injuries.
Fall accidents can cause serious injuries. For example:
- Broken bones;
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Back & neck injuries; and
- Amputations due to near misses or falls from a height (like off a ladder).
Clearly, the serious injuries caused by fall accidents may be life-changing. As such, you need help getting full compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering. We have years of experience helping clients like you get compensated for injuries.
California Lawsuit Filing Deadline for Trip, Slip & Fall Accidents.
You must file your lawsuit within the statute of limitations. In fact, a judge may dismiss your claim if you do not file a complaint before the deadline. California’s law generally sets a two-year statute of limitations for fall accidents. Conversely, if the injury occurred on government/public property, you may only have six months to make a claim. For this reason, you should speak to a slip and fall lawyer immediately after the fall. You may otherwise not be allowed to make a claim.
What Compensation You Can Recover From a Fall Accident Lawsuit in California.
In most cases, you are entitled to compensation for your financial losses, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. The insurance company usually offers you a small payment to settle your claim, but only if it is below the amount it expects to pay if you decide to hire a slip and fall lawyer and pursue a claim. Our firm knows how to seek the maximum settlement for your injuries. To learn more about the compensation available to a personal injury victim, click here.
The Cost of Asserting a Trip, Slip and Fall Accident Claim in California.
If you have been injured by someone’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation from that person. However, filing a lawsuit for someone else’s negligence involves spending money. For example, there are fees associated with court filings, getting medical records, conducting depositions, and retaining experts. Generally, we advance all payments for the costs of your case. In other words, we pay for all of it. Even more, we do not get paid back unless we get you paid. Therefore, we invest in your case. This means, admittedly, we only take on cases in which we believe.
