Getting hurt when you go to the store because of a slip-and-fall accident isn’t something that most people plan into their trip. The sad fact of the matter is that these accidents do sometimes occur. When they do occur, serious injuries might plague you. These injuries can be very costly. Not only do you have to deal with medical expenses, but you might also have to deal with taking time off from work.
For people who have been the victims of a premises liability issue in California, such as a slip-and-fall accident, you have the right to seek compensation from the party responsible for your injuries. Proving the liability in these cases might take a lot of experience, but that shouldn’t deter victims from stepping forward and exercising their right to take action.
Our law firm has experience in handling a variety of premises liability cases. From claims of unsafe equipment to claims of slipping on an icy sidewalk, we know what it takes to prove who was at fault for the accident. Since proving fault is often the first step in making the claims, experience in the area can avoid potentially costly delays in making the claims in the civil court.
Being injured because of someone else’s neglect as you go through your day is never acceptable, especially when you think of how severe injuries because of dangerous property conditions can be. Whether you have suffered bruises, broken bones or more serious injuries like a brain injury, you have the right to seek compensation that can help you pay for your medical bills and other costs associated with the accident.
