Los Angeles & Orange County Slip and Fall Lawyers
Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers in Orange County and Los Angeles
A slip and fall is a form of premises liability accident wherein the victim, due to a hazardous condition on another’s property, slips and/or falls. Poor lighting, an uneven walkway or a wet floor can all cause one to lose his or her footing and fall. Slip and falls can be difficult to prove in that your attorney must prove that you, as the innocent victim, were being reasonably cautious in your behavior – and that the property owner knew of the situation and yet failed to fix it.
Our skilled slip and fall lawyers may be able to get you a reasonable amount of compensation not only for any medical expenses you incur as a result of your slip and fall injury, but also for wage loss, pain and suffering, child care, and the loss of enjoyment of life.
You may think your slip and fall injuries are minor and will not need any medical attention. However, this form of premises liability accident can result in a heavy impact against your tailbone, spine, and neck. These injuries may only hurt slightly at first but without proper medical attention can become aggravated and will worsen just by going through your day to day routines.
