Slip and fall injuries are common occurrences in the city of California, with thousands of claims brought to court every year. A good number of the victims suffer life-altering injuries and even death, as a result of construction site defects, wet floors, and faulty stairwells. It is important to respond in the right ways following such an accident. One of the vital steps is approaching a qualified slip and fall injury attorney, to determine your damages and chances of winning compensation. At the law offices of Joseph Y. Avrahamy, we fight to make sure you receive the maximum compensation allowed by law.
There are obviously several factors to consider in such a matter, including any previously complaints regarding an existing hazard, and possible negligence on the property owner’s part. If the latter can be proven conclusively, the jury would award the victim a compensatory amount which they deem fair in the particular situation. Our personal injury lawyers assess this and many other things while investigating your case.
Any owner of a property is legally obligated to maintain their premises in a safe manner, when inviting or allowing others to enter it. If they fail to do this, and the fact is proven in a court of law, they can be held liable for any injuries sustained as a result of this negligence. If they knew about a danger or defect and failed to remove it, a victim can seek compensation. Since every accident in the slip and fall category is unique, hiring an experience attorney is usually the best way to achieve adequate redressal.
The owner is required to take “reasonable” precautions to avoid accidents on their premises. This is something the jury would always focus on, and that affects the amount which the plaintiff is awarded by the court. If the defendant was careful in keeping their property safe, then the balance tips in their favor. The same happens if the defendant is found partially responsible for what happened to them.
