If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you need experienced California personal injury Attorneys to represent you. Slip and falls are one of the leading causes of injury in California. In fact, hundreds of deaths occur in the United States due to slip and falls.

Slip and fall accidents may also result in serious injuries causing thousands of dollars in damages. A slip or fall resulting in injury or death may entitle the victim to compensation for the injuries as well as possible punitive damages.

How do California slip and fall accidents happen?

Slips and falls occur for a number of reasons. Many slips and falls are because of a dangerous condition. Some of the causes of a slip and fall are because of slick surfaces where there is no warning, there may be items on the floor that cannot be seen, or even improper maintenance. Slip and fall accidents can also happen anywhere. Some of the locations that are common to see a California slip and fall injury are restaurants, construction sites, the mall, on a public sidewalk, school, or even a private home. The California slip and fall lawyers at Ginny WaliaLaw Offices understand that a slip and fall accident can cause long term injuries or even death and our attorneys fight for you to maximize your recovery.

Duty to prevent slips and falls

California slip and fall laws require that landowners keep their property safe for others that come onto the property. A landowner or manager of a property must exercise reasonable care to ensure that the premises are safe for all foreseeable visitors. In fact, California slips and fall laws give the manager and property owner a duty to inspect the property for unsafe conditions. The property owner or manager must then fix the unsafe condition or warn any users of the property of the condition.

For example, if a restaurant or grocery store has a wet floor, they must post signs that warn you of the wet floor or an injured person may have a claim for a wet floor accident.

What compensation can be recovered in a slip and fall injury?

A California slip and fall injury accident attorney can help you determine the types and amounts of damages to which you may be entitled. The amount and type of damage will depend on all of the circumstances regarding the slip and fall injury. Calculation of damages from the slip and fall depends on a multitude of factors such as the injuries sustained, the injured party’s current earnings and potential future earning, marital status and dependents, the extent of the injuries and the amount for all medical expenses in the past as well as present. It is in your best interests to contact a slip and fall injury attorney to determine your potential recovery.
