Helping personal injury victims of auto accident, slip and fall, motor accident, dog bites and pedestrian accident get justice they deserve
We know it doesn’t sound very serious when you think about it. However, silly situations such as slipping over puddles of water, missing a step on uneven stairs, or any other similar slip and fall condition can be really injurious, and even fatal. And most importantly, these accidents can happen anywhere – be it a schools, office, grocery store, shopping mall, airport or somewhere else. This fall might have unnecessary complicated situations, specially for senior individuals.
Slip and fall victims might be eligible for financial compensation for their lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering.
It is mostly assumed that the property owner will be accountable in slip and fall accidents, however it is not always the case. Although the proprietor or the landlord will be answerable about the negligence in maintaining the safe conditions on their properties, there is a lot that the plaintiff have still got to prove.
For instance, to prove that defendant’s negligence caused the plaintiff’s harm is a very challenging task. The plaintiff must be able to prove any one of the following:
The property owner (or any one related in some source) created the risky condition. The owner was aware of the hazards possible but did not make an effort to fix it which a “reasonable” owner would have done.
The concept of comparative negligence is one of the main ones in slip and fall cases. California is a pure comparative negligence state – that means, the claimants will be awarded compensation in a slip and fall case even if there is there is partial proof of what caused his injuries. The final settlement amount will be based on his role in the accident. This means, he/she might not always receive 100% compensation but only a part of it.
