Do I have a slip and fall claim?
When you meet with our law firm, the first thing that we do is evaluate the case. Knowing whether you have a slip and fall claim starts with looking at why the fall occurred. In general, a property owner must keep their property safe. They may not allow their property to be in a state of disrepair in a way that is negligent or unreasonable.
Of course, what’s unreasonable depends on the situation. There are a lot of questions to answer. What was the nature of the danger that caused the fall? How long was the danger there before the accident? Did they warn people about the danger or take steps to fix it?
As part of our representation, we work to prove the nature of the dangerous condition and how it caused the accident. The best way to know if you have a slip and fall claim is to have a personalized consultation to learn more about your situation.
How do I start a slip and fall claim?
When an injury occurs, the victim typically doesn’t know where to begin. To formally start a slip and fall claim, our lawyers file court documents. However, there’s a lot of work to do before that. We investigate who is at fault, where to bring the case and what you deserve in compensation. There are requirements for how to file the case and what to put in your first legal documents that can impact the results.
Know that you have a very short time window to bring the case. Generally, in California the time limit for a slip and fall injury case is two years. If the defendant in the case is a government entity, the timeline is even shorter. Don’t wait to begin. The sooner you get started, the easier it is to collect evidence, and the sooner you have your compensation. Our lawyers can evaluate what you need to do and work efficiently on your behalf.
What is a typical slip and fall claim?
There are a lot of ways that slip and fall accidents occur. There is no case that is truly typical. A business may fail to clean up a water spill. They may leave trip and fall hazards where victims may not be able to avoid them. Hand railings may break, and automatic doors can malfunction. Lighting may be inadequate. When we represent you, we evaluate the circumstances to determine what caused the slip and fall.
Just like there is no typical circumstance for a slip and fall, the amount of compensation that you may receive is specific to your case. You may claim compensation for the injuries and losses that you have. Most people underestimate what they deserve for compensation. Mental injuries and pain and suffering can be a part of your claim.
What can I expect to receive for a slip and fall claim?
A slip and fall injury impacts you in a lot of ways. You have medical bills from the care that you received. It may be impossible to work. The financial losses that you have should be covered, but that’s only the beginning. Damages can be both economic and non-economic. Non-economic damages should reflect the severity of the accident and how it has impacted our life.
Our lawyers work diligently to ensure that you receive fair compensation. We use medical records, financial statements and expert testimony to prove losses. When you meet with us, you can expect an honest evaluation of the circumstances. Don’t wonder about what your case may be worth. Meet with us to receive a personalized consultation that’s specific to the details in your case. Get answers to all your questions.
