Slip & Fall Accident

A lot of things could happen to the body when you slip and fall, someone could easily end up with a head injury, break a hip, sprain an ankle, or suffer some other injury that affects them significantly. Unfortunately people can slip and fall because of different reasons like puddles of water, uneven stairs, or any other dangerous condition that can potentially make you fall. A slip and fall can affect people differently, depending on what happens to your body and other factors, such as age and general health.

The first thing to do if you or someone you know were involved in a slip and fall accident is, after getting medical attention, contact immediately an experienced slip & fall accident attorney to consult about your situation. A property owner and/or another party could owe you compensation for your damages. Contact as soon as possible our law firm today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case with an experienced slip and fall lawyer.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

A slip and fall can happen anywhere. It can happen in grocery stores, parking lots, at home, or at work. If you fall in the workplace, you may have grounds to file a claim against a property owner on top of receiving benefits from a workers’ compensation claim. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Unlit stairwells
  • Dangerous floor surfaces
  • Poor floor construction
  • Construction site defects
  • Crumbling or uneven sidewalks
  • Freshly waxed or mopped floors
  • Wet floors
  • Lack of warning signs on wet floors
  • Spilled liquids
  • Spilled substances
  • Icy pathways
  • Crumbling or uneven sidewalks
  • Negligent cleaning schedules
  • Greasy floors
  • Freshly waxed or mopped floors
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Electrical cords
  • Food debris

Almost all slip and fall accidents are preventable, and the owner of a property, home, or business is the one who must take reasonable measures to prevent and remedy potential causes of fall accidents. So if there is a slip and fall accident and the victim got seriously injured, the victim has the rights to file a claim and get compensated accordingly, the owner has to take responsability of the damages.

Our experienced attorneys at Workers’ Advocate Law Group will evaluate your medical records, invoices from accident-related expenses, and other evidence you have gathered to determine the types of damages you may be able to recover. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident that was caused by a property owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to damages such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Permanent disability

Before you can recover compensation for a slip and fall accident, you or your attorney will have to prove the defendant’s fault. Generally, this means proving his or her negligence. The burden of proof in a slip and fall claim rests with you, the injured victim. It isn’t uncommon for property managers and their insurance companies to argue that fall victims are partially or completely at fault for slip and fall accidents. This is why it is important to contac an experienced slip & fall accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident, to gather any proof and follow the correct steps to defend your rights and get compensation.

Employment Law Q&A: What are the top grounds for suing my employer in California?

As a plaintiff-side employment lawyer, I can tell you that there are several grounds for suing your employer in California.

(Labor Code §§ 1194, 226, 510, 512) Whistleblower Retaliation: California law protects employees who report violations of law or public policy from retaliation by their employers. If you have suffered adverse employment actions for reporting illegal activity or other misconduct by your employer, you may have a claim for whistleblower retaliation under California law.
