- In slip And Fall
Every year, slips and falls cause more than one million injuries serious enough to warrant an emergency room visit. Any experienced California slip and fall accident attorney can tell you that slip and fall accidents are especially devastating to senior citizens who lack the reflexes and resilience that they once had. An Orange County slip and fall accident lawyer could also tell you that when we’re walking in any public place, we are entirely within our rights to expect the following:
- Floors, stairs, ramps and other walkways are safe for walking.
- If there is a potential hazard of any kind, the landowner or manager should make reasonable attempts to alert us to the hazard with signage and other markings.
- If a hazard to others exists, it is incumbent upon the landowner to remove the hazard as quickly as possible.
However, if a slip and fall hazard exists, is not remedied and leads to someone slipping, falling and suffering injuries, the person or organization that owns the premises can be held liable for damages. This is where having the assistance of an experienced Los Angeles slip and fall accident attorney is very important.
An experienced California slip and fall accident lawyer can investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident, build an effective case that indicates the responsible party’s negligence and help the injured party and his or her immediate family seek damages.
