Stores, theaters, municipal buildings, offices and apartment complexes have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for the people who shop, live, work, and otherwise lawfully occupy their premises.

You may be able to seek cash compensation to cover your medical expenses and missed days at work, and to make up for your pain and suffering. 

How do I know if I have a case? 

The only way to know for certain whether or not you have a case is to schedule a free and confidential consultation with a Los Angeles slip and fall attorney from Ellis Law. Generally speaking, in California, several factors must be present for damages to be awarded. The property owner must have an obligation to provide a reasonably safe environment. If it can be proven that you have injuries resulting from their failure to live up to this obligation, you probably have a case. Of course, establishing what exactly a “reasonably safe” environment is, can be tricky. 

What happens next? 

After your consultation, if we decide you have a case, we’ll get to work establishing fault right away with no upfront legal fees. Each slip and fall accident lawyer with Ellis Law works on contingency fees, which means we don’t get paid unless you receive compensation. In some cases, it may be possible to reach an acceptable settlement with the liable party’s insurance company. In other cases, you might have to go to trial. In a trial, a judge will seek to answer a host of questions, including: 

  • Did the property owner cause the dangerous situation? 
  • Did they know of the situation, but fail to act? 
  • Would a “reasonable” person have discovered and removed or repaired the danger? 
  • Did the danger or hazard exist for a good reason? 
  • Could the area have been made safer by erecting a barrier or posting signage? 
  • Did poor lighting contribute to the accident? 

Your slip and fall lawyer will present evidence that shows your accident was the direct result of someone else’s irresponsible behavior. Though there is no way to guarantee the outcome of any case, there is a good chance you can recover damages if you’ve fallen in a public place due to an unmarked wet or recently polished floor, loose or bunched up rugs, poorly lit steps, uneven walking surfaces, rickety stairs, or patches of ice.
