Glendale Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers
Though slip and fall accidents are common, their consequences can be anything but ordinary. People are seriously injured or even killed in slips and falls all the time. These victims deserve to be compensated for their pain and suffering, especially if the accident was a result of someone else’s negligence.
Having a Los Angeles slip and fall attorney is vital for success in navigating a slip and fall accident case. Glendale slip and fall lawyers are here to help.
Legal duty to maintain a safe environment
Any business or landowner that frequently gives the public access to his land is under legal obligation to keep the premises reasonably safe. For example, if liquid is spilled on a grocery store floor and the owner has it cleaned up and puts a “wet floor sign” up in a reasonable amount of time, he is fulfilling his legal duty. However, if the owner does not clean up the mess or put up a sign, and someone slips and falls, the owner could be found negligent because he did not maintain a reasonably safe environment.
Though this example is fairly cut and dry, most slip and fall cases are not so simple. That is why you need a slip and fall accident lawyer helping to lead you through the complexities of a slip and fall case.
Slip and fall damages
Your slip and fall lawyer will either settle out of court, or fight in court to win you damages, or monetary compensation, for the injures you sustained in your accident. You can be awarded damages for a wide range of reasons, including:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
Your lawyer will fight hard to make sure you are awarded the maximum compensation possible, as he or she understands how to negotiate settlements out of court and prove liability in court if needed.
Process to retain a lawyer
It’s not as hard to retain a lawyer as you might think. The first step is usually an initial consultation in which you and the lawyer will discuss the details of your slip and fall accident to determine if you have a case, and if you want to pursue it further. At Ellis Law, we do not charge a fee for the initial consultation. If we decide to move forward with your case, we work on a contingency basis, meaning you owe us nothing unless we win.
