Falling Accidents Are Common
And can result in significant personal injury. While wet floors and slippery surfaces are often the culprit, other unsafe environmental factors like broken steps, torn carpeting, cluttered pathways, poorly lit walkways, and lack of warning signs can all lead to trip and fall accidents.
In California, the owners of residential and commercial property are responsible for providing a safe environment so long as you were lawfully on the property at the time of the accident. If you have sustained a slip and fall or trip and fall accident that resulted in personal injury, then Abogados Campeones wants to help you to get the settlement you deserve.
Unsafe environments often cause Slip/trip and fall accidents. It is very common for the property owners to address these safety concerns only after a personal injury is sustained. While this is a fantastic practice for protecting others from future accidents, it can make proving negligence or hazardous conditions challenging for the initial victim. Also, fall liability is among the most questioned by insurance companies, and it may be difficult to actually obtain a settlement.
Taking On The Insurance Company:
When it comes to avoiding liability, most insurance companies will do whatever they can to claim that a slip/trip and fall accident was actually the fault of the victim rather than the environmental conditions. A common narrative is that the victim should have taken more care. Considering that people who sustain falling injuries often feel embarrassed or foolish, it is easy for insurance companies to convince the victims that they are not actually entitled to a settlement.
At Abogados Campeones, we will not settle for anything less than the maximum amount of damages you deserve. Slip/trip and fall accidents can lead to back, ankle, knee, and hip injuries among others. This is an area of personal injury law that we take very seriously, and we believe that you should too.
