The phrase “slip and fall” refers to a personal injury case wherein a person suffers injuries after slipping or tripping and then falling. All too often, slip and fall accidents occur in residential complexes or commercial establishments due to the presence of dangerous conditions or hazards. These conditions include torn carpeting, slippery flooring, poor lighting, narrow staircases, broken sidewalks, and any other apparent or hidden hazards.
Proving liability for a slip and fall case is costly and time consuming. A slip and fall victim must prove that his or her injuries were caused by the negligence of the person or entity that owned and/or possessed the property. An owner or possessor of premises has a duty to others to keep the premises safe and prevent persons from being injured.
After being involved in a slip and fall accident, it is important to immediately preserve potential evidence. For example, before you leave the scene of the accident, it is imperative that you or a friend take photographs of the scene, obtain contact information for all persons who witnessed the incident, and refrain from speaking to the responsible party about liability.
If you were injured after you suffered a slip and fall accident, seeking immediate medical attention should be your priority. However, immediately after seeking medical treatment you should contact a reputable attorney who can serve as your legal advocate in pursuing damages against the responsible party. When hiring a slip and fall attorney in California, you should not only expect that your interests will be vigorously pursued, but also that the goal of obtaining money damages on your behalf will be paramount.
