Whether traversing downtown Azusa or hiking out to the Bridge to Nowhere, slip and fall accidents happen in the Canyon City. Something slips and falls usually have in common is that they happen unexpectedly. What they do not have in common is the impact they can leave – while some falls are minor, many lead to extensive medical bills and ongoing suffering. With skilled Azusa slip and fall lawyers by your side after a fall, you can protect your rights and fight for fair compensation for your losses.

Who is liable for a slip and fall?

Sometimes slip and fall accidents are random and no one is at fault. Sometimes the person who was injured was being careless in not watching where he or she was going and bears the blame. And sometimes a third party, like the property owner, tenant, or company responsible for cleaning and maintenance, is liable for injuries that occur from the fall.

A personal injury claim is based on a breach of a duty that leads to an injury. If someone, like a business owner, either created a hazard on the property or knew (or reasonably should have known) of a dangerous defect, then he or she has a duty to either fix it or warn those who may be hurt. Failure to do this can mean the owner is legally liable for the resulting injuries.

What a slip and fall attorney does

Liability is a key issue that you need to understand before you can file an insurance claim or lawsuit, but it is very fact-specific. A Los Angeles slip and fall attorney will listen to your story, investigate the facts, and gather evidence. If there is reason to believe that the person or entity responsible for the property could have taken steps to prevent the injury, your slip and fall accident lawyer will prepare your demand and take the necessary steps to file a claim for compensation.

Common slip and fall damages

Your demand for compensation needs to include all related damages, even those that have not yet been incurred; once a settlement is final, you cannot go back and ask for more money. A slip and fall lawyer will help ensure all out-of-pocket costs are accounted for and help determine the value of non-monetary losses, like pain and suffering.

In general, you may be eligible to recover reimbursement for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs like those for medical devices and necessary personal services during your recovery. But it is important not to overlook the non-economic losses like the physical pain, emotional stress, anxiety, disability, loss of enjoyment, and loss of companionship.

Consult with a California attorney

After a slip and fall, there is no time to waste. California law only allows six months for a person to file a lawsuit after a slip and fall. For personal injury lawsuits against private parties, you may have two years to file a lawsuit, but many slips and falls take place on public property and are subject to only a six-month statute of limitations.
