Liability and Your Rights
Whether slip and fall cases occur at a business, on public property,or in a private home California accident and premises liability law holds the property owner, operator, and others liable for damages if they were negligent. They’re responsible for taking reasonable precautions to maintain safe conditions. That includes identifying and correcting or setting up warnings in a timely manner.
Compensation for damages should include the full cost of all short- and long-term medical bills as well loss of income and reduced future earnings potential. The largest part of a slip-and-fall claim typically involves a monetary settlement for pain and suffering along with those other damages.
Protecting your rights to fair compensation begins with taking pictures, collecting contact information from witnesses, and retaining all medical bills and records. Next on the list is retaining a slip and fall lawyer to push back against insurance companies efforts towards a fast but far too-low settlement.
An experienced personal injury lawyer’s expertise includes investigating the accident to establish at-fault parties, which may include a building or business owner, contractor, architect, or engineer. An attorney’s work also includes collecting evidence and witness statements to build an argument that supports the requirements for a successful slip and fall case:
- responsible parties knew or reasonably should have known about the hazard,
- they took no action or inadequate action, and
- that hazard lead to your accident
