Slip & falls have become such common accidents that property owners are now required to provide a certain amount of maintenance. Part of keeping tenants, visitors, and patrons safe is clearly marking any hazardous areas. They must also have reasonable guidelines for dealing with spills, keep walkways clear of obstruction and well lit, and provide assistance (safety and/or guardrails) where necessary.
Also known as trip and falls, these accidents can cause serious injuries especially to pregnant women, young children, and elderly persons whose balance may be compromised.
Who Was Responsible for Your Accident?
If you were hurt on someone else’s property, there’s a good chance you can ask for compensation. These cases are called “premises liability” because the person who owns or maintains the property can be held liable for any damages.
Approximately 1 million people are injured in slip and fall accidents annually and more than 15,000 die as a result.
Often, stores and other property owners have medical payments insurance to cover a certain amount of medical expenses an injured person incurs. Our slip and fall accident attorneys in Los Angeles can help you file a claim with this insurance while negotiating the settlement for full damages.
