Holding Negligent Property Owners Responsible for Fall Injuries
Slip and fall accidents happen every day in Southern California. The injuries that victims suffer range from minor to severe. Some injuries can even cause long-term problems that result in excessive medical bills, decreased income earning, and restricted enjoyment of life.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, you may be able to file a lawsuit to pay for your recovery. Our Glendale slip and fall accident lawyers can help understand your legal options during an initial case evaluation, which is completely free and confidential. At Legal One Law Group, APC, APC, we always have your best interests in mind, and you don’t owe us anything unless you are paid a fair settlement for your losses.
Proving a Property Owner’s Liability
To file a claim against the property owner, you must be able to demonstrate their fault. Your incident must involve several qualifying factors.
You must show that:
- You were on the property legally
- The owner knew about the dangerous condition but failed to resolve the issue or provide proper warning
- Your injuries came from the slip and fall accident
- You suffered losses due to the accident, such as medical treatment you had to pay for
The process of proving liability can be complicated. It can require collecting evidence such as surveillance footage, witness testimony, and medical records. You must also compose a case strong enough to argue for your right to compensation. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you collect sufficient evidence and build a compelling case.
Understanding Liability for Slip & Fall Accidents in Glendale
Slip and fall accidents refer to those situations in which individuals lose their footing due to slippery surfaces, uneven ground, or unexpected hazards. While such a fall may result in nothing more than a few scrapes and bruises, these accidents can cause very serious injuries. Falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the U.S. and can also lead to broken bones, spinal cord damage, and even wrongful death.
Common dangers that can lead to slip and fall accidents include:
- Spilled liquids
- Icy sidewalks
- Poor lighting
- Broken or cracked ground
- Broken or collapsed stairs
- Floors made of slippery materials
- Defective handrails on stairs
- Defective escalators and elevators
- Loose cables in walkways
When these hazards result in someone being injured, negligent property owners may be held responsible for damages.
