Welcome to Kuzyk Law
Have you stumbled and fallen on broken steps? What about slipped on a slick surface? In Santa Clarita, the potential for injury due to slip and fall accidents is big, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with the consequences.
If you have suffered devastating injuries while shopping, working, visiting an office building, or swimming at a community pool, please give Kuzyk Law a call after obtaining medical treatment.
As a customer, visitor or tenant, you have the innate right to be safe while on someone else’s property. Whether you were mugged due to poor security in a parking lot or you broke a bone while falling on city property, you are 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.
With extensive injuries that can have devastating – and sometimes deadly – consequences, you could face 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.
We are dependable, shrewd, and qualified Santa Clarita slip and fall attorneys who will fight for you when you’ve been injured.
Santa Clarita Slip and Fall Injuries in Santa Clarita
Ranked by Money magazine as one of the top 100 places to live in the country, Santa Clarita is a city on the move. But as the third largest city in Los Angeles County, the possibility for slips and falls greatly increases as the population grows. The statistics are sobering all throughout the country:
- 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
- 15 percent of all accidental deaths are attributed to slip and fall cases, second only to motor vehicle accidents
Property owners have a very clear legal responsibility in this state to protect the safety and well-being of their visitors. When dangerous conditions are ignored, tragic accidents occur, often in situations that leave the victim vulnerable to lost work, continuing hospitalizations and long-term effects.
After a slip and fall, your first action should be to get to a doctor so you can properly document the injuries you have sustained.
The next call you make should be to our attorneys at Kuzyk Law. Let us be your ally in the fight for compensation you deserve. You must act fast!
Meet with Your Trusted Slip and Fall Attorney for Advice and Action
Kuzyk Law 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 languish despite repeated complaints.
When your personal injury is directly related to someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to monetary compensation for the following:
- Lost wages
- Lengthy hospitalizations
- Complex surgeries
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic care
- Pain and suffering
The stakes are exponentially higher if you have an injury that keeps you out of work.
The term premises liability, which stems from neglect of the property owner, can include any of the following:
- Falling at shopping malls, grocery stores, government buildings, commercial facilities, theatres, apartments or private homes
- Falling down broken staircases or off a roof
- Slipping on wet surfaces
- Suffering burns from a fire or explosion
- Sprains, strains, fractures, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage due to uneven pavement or walkways, obstructions or obstacles, or falling objects
- Experiencing lacerations from broken glass
- Sustaining a dog bite
- Being mugged or assaulted due to lack of security
- Drowning in community and private pools
Chances are, negligence is to blame for your situation, and the negligent party must pay. The law in California is very clear about this: 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.
Having our Santa Clarita personal injury attorneys on your side means you get peace of mind. We have secured more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts for our clients since 1971. We know all too well how red tape works in Santa Clarita – especially when it comes to the insurance companies. The standard insurance model is to give the lowest payout possible, which is barely enough to cover immediate medical expenses, let alone 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 via a courtroom trial.
Let us help you navigate the complexities of the legal and insurance industries so you don’t get taken advantage of.
