Slip and Fall Accidents Caused by Negligence
In order to recover compensation, a person who has been hurt in a slip and fall accident must be able to show that their accident was caused by the negligence of the person or business responsible for maintaining the property on which the accident took place in a safe condition.
Slip and fall accidents can easily occur as a result of dangerous conditions on either public or private property. Examples of conditions that cause slip and fall accidents come in many various forms. A dangerous condition usually involves a localized spot that is for some reason more slippery than the rest of the floor (like a spilled drink, rain water tracked in from the outside, etc.), that causes the unsuspecting and unprepared pedestrian to slip and fall. Here are some of the most common hazardous conditions that can cause slips, trips, and falls that are often attributable to someone else’s negligence:
- Wet floors
- Inadequate lighting
- Exposed cables or wires
- Uneven stairs
- Uneven sidewalks
- Debris in entryways or walkways
- Improper flooring materials
- Torn carpets or rugs
- Holes in floors
In some cases, it may not be apparent to you or your friends or family that a slip and fall accident was someone else’s fault, as negligence is a complicated legal concept that requires significant study and experience to fully understand. Consequently, it is extremely important for anyone that has been hurt in a slip and fall accident to have an experienced attorney thoroughly evaluate their case. In addition, this evaluation should happen as soon as possible after an injury-causing incident, as waiting runs the risk of losing evidence critical to the success of your case or the lapsing of the time limit within which you have to file a claim. If you were injured in a slip & fall accident, you need an advice of professional Los Angeles slip and fall accident lawyer immediately.
Slip and Fall Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries
While you may be under the impression that people who are injured in slip and fall accidents typically do not sustain serious injuries, in reality, any accident has the potential to result in injuries that could affect a person for the rest of their life and require emergency medical treatment. Examples of serious injuries that you can sustain if you slip, trip, or fall include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Nerve damage
- Hip fractures
These and other serious injuries have the potential to result in thousands of dollars in medical bills and leave victims in serious pain and unable to work. As a result, it is critical for anyone hurt in a slip and fall accident to protect their legal rights by retaining a lawyer as soon as they can.
