Have You Been Injured in a Fall?
Suffering a slip and fall accident in Los Angeles can come with long-lasting and devastating consequences, through no fault of your own. As a customer, visitor or tenant, you have a basic right to be safe while on someone else’s property, entitled to compensation under something called “premises liability.” If you get hurt on someone’s property and a dangerous condition could have been prevented, the owner of the property is liable for damages.
A mugging in poorly secured parking lots, falling from roofs, tripping over crumbling stairs or getting bit by a vicious dog…these are all examples of premises liability and are considered slip and fall cases. Whether you’ve fallen while on city property or slipped on a slick surface, those injuries can have long-lasting – and sometimes deadly – consequences.
If you are facing months and even years of medical and rehab bills, not to mention the lost wages you will miss out on from not being able to work, call our Los Angeles slip and fall attorneys.
We will fight for you when you can’t.
Los Angeles Slip and Fall Injuries
Los Angeles is fraught with potential for slip and fall accidents, simply due to its size and population as the second biggest city in the country. We see these kinds of cases every single day. With injuries ranging from mild to severe, you just can’t take a chance on your recovery. Getting checked out by a doctor is critical. Calling us is the next thing you should do.
Did you know…
- 9 million people visited an emergency room last year due to a slip and fall
- 15 percent of all accidental deaths are attributed to slip and fall cases, second only to motor vehicle accidents
- 60 percent of all slip and fall accidents occur in retail and wholesale stores
- 25 percent of slip and fall injuries occur in the workplace
When dangerous conditions by property owners (landlords, store owners, etc.) are ignored, preventable accidents can occur. Many times, those accidents can cause the victim to miss a lot of work due to continuing hospitalizations, rehab, and other long-term effects.
Time is of the essence in slip and fall cases. The sooner you call us, the better chance you’ll have at a successful verdict or settlement.
Get Results with Your Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney
Consulting with our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys means you get peace of mind. We have obtained more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts for our clients since 1971, and cast a critical eye toward how the red tape works in Los Angeles – especially when it comes to the insurance companies.
The standard insurance model is to give the lowest payout possible – just enough to cover immediate medical expenses – but what about the lost wages, pain and suffering and extended hospital and therapy bills? Most times, we can secure you a package via mediation and settlement rather than in a courtroom battle.
When your personal injury is directly related to someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to monetary compensation. Our slip and fall attorneys can go after property owners accountable for failing to inspect or properly maintain the premises, whether an improperly-inspected hazardous workspace existed at the time of your accident or your apartment landlord knowingly let a safety issue go even when getting complaints.
We can recover money for the following:
- Lost wages
- Lengthy hospitalizations
- Complex surgeries
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic care
- Pain and suffering
Twenty-two percent of falls resulted in more than 31 days of missed work last year in this country. If you are the sole breadwinner, how will you provide for your family while out of work?
Premises liability doesn’t always involve strict slip and fall cases. This term includes all accidents that happen on property in which the owner is responsible for visitor safety. The cases we deal with include these examples and many more:
- Slipping on wet surfaces
- Suffering burns from a fire or explosion
- Drowning in community and private pools
- Falling at shopping malls, grocery stores, government buildings, commercial facilities, theatres, apartments or private homes
- Falling down broken staircases or off a roof
- Sprains, strains, fractures, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage due to uneven pavement or walkways, obstructions or obstacles, or falling objects
- Sustaining a dog bite
- Being mugged or assaulted due to poor security
- Experiencing lacerations from broken glass
You shouldn’t have to pay for something you didn’t cause. Call us to get restitution. We’re not afraid of the insurance companies! We have the law on our side: in California, the owner of a property must provide reasonable care to keep the premises safe for visitors. If not, they can be held accountable for a slip and fall or other accident resulting from failure to provide reasonably safe conditions.
