Every year, thousands of people suffer major injuries after they slip and fall on wet floors, faulty stairs, and hazardous walkways. On average, over 17,000 people die from slip and fall injuries every year in the U.S. In fact, more than one million Americans have a serious enough slip and fall injury to require medical treatment. One serious slip and fall accident can cost a person nearly $30,000 in medical expenses and lost income.
Slip and fall accidents often referred to as “premises liability” cases, can get very complicated and are often hard to prove. To work through the maze of today’s complex, ever-changing laws, particularly in California, requires the knowledge and expertise of a skilled personal injury attorney.
How Can We Help?
Our experienced Palmdale premises liability legal team can advise you of your rights and tell you whether you have a case or not. Did you know that in California, merely owning or occupying land does not make that person liable for injuries you may have sustained on the property? You must first prove that the owner or occupant of the property was negligent before you can prevail in a premises liability claim. Property owners and those who simply occupy the property have different “duties.” We can explain the difference to you and determine who was negligent in their duty to keep the property safe from slip and fall liability.
Another factor one must take into account is the status of the person who is injured. The degree of responsibility owed by an owner or occupier varies according to whether the injured person was an invitee, licensee, or simply a trespasser. As you can see, things can get complicated. We can help you through this legal gauntlet. We will aggressively defend your rights and vigorously pursue any rightful claims for damages, medical expenses, and compensation for pain and suffering you have endured.
