Slip and Fall Injuries and Accidents

Preserve evidence of accident to maximize compensation
Slip and fall accidents can lead to serious injuries including head trauma, broken limbs and lacerations. We will begin an immediate investigation to collect all necessary evidence for your claim, including police and accident reports, hospital records, video surveillance documentation, and witness statements. If your injury occurred in a store, we will consult with other employees who knew or should have known about the dangerous conditions. As your advocates we will identify every defendant and explore every potential source of recovery on your behalf.
We are experienced in premises liability claims and slip and fall injuries caused by:
- Spilled water
- Broken stairwell
- Broken handrail
- Failure to remove ice
- Uneven sidewalks
- Improper lighting conditions
- Trip and fall
Slip and fall liability and California law
In the state of California, a store owner, landowner or property management company is not automatically liable for an injury that occurs on the property. Your attorney must show that an employee created the danger, had knowledge, or should have hand knowledge of the dangerous condition. Our attorneys will help determine whether the owner is liable for failure to clean up the spill or other condition that caused the accident.
It is important to gather evidence while the injury is fresh. Our attorneys will do a detailed interview to pinpoint the exact time of the accident to preserve evidence and documentation of your claim. We will immediately secure the names of witnesses, take photographs of the scene and your injuries.
