Common Types Of Slip And Fall Accident Injuries

Hazards can exist all around you. When you visit another property, you expect it to be safe… But what if the property has not been well maintained and injury occurs. Property owners have a responsibility to keep their properties safe for visitors under California premises liability laws. Here are some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents:

Weather Conditions

Although we cannot change the weather, property owners are responsible for adapting their property to the changing weather conditions. This includes clearing snowy or icy walkways or cleaning up any water that could lead to a slip and fall.

Uneven Walking Areas

If a property has uneven walking areas for visitors, owners must do the best they can to mitigate the issue, or provide proper warning signs leading up to the hazard.

Messy Areas

Loose extension cords, tools, boxes, and debris, can all be potential tripping hazards.

Slippery Floors

Many spills can create serious slip and fall hazards. Oils, grease, food, even just water can create a slick surface for anyone walking across. These spills must be given proper safety signage and cleaned up as soon as possible.

Lighting

Hallways, basements, stairwells, all areas need to be properly lit at all times to reduce hazards.

Who is responsible for a slip and fall injury?

When looking at who is responsible for your slip and fall injury, the first thing you must do is determine what party was at fault for the accident. There are some questions you can ask yourself:

  • Was this accident preventable?
  • Did the property owner have an obligation to keep visitors safe?
  • Were you injured as the result of someone else’s negligence?

What are the next steps when someone is injured in a slip and fall accident?

If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be left feeling shaken and unsure of what to do next. Being injured in any situation is scary, especially if you are alone or on someone else’s property. Follow these steps after a slip and fall accident for guidance in your recovery process:

1. Seek Medical Assistance Immediately
After a slip and fall accident, if you are feeling injured you should seek medical attention immediately. If injuries are severe, call 911 to have emergency services sent to you to help treat your injuries. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, you should always plan to see a doctor right away. Slip and falls can often lead to broken bones, or back and neck issues, these injuries may not feel substantial at first but could worsen over time in long-lasting injuries.
2. Report The Accident
You will need to contact the owner or manager of the property, as well as any insurance companies they may have you deal with. It’s also a good idea to report your accident to the police, a detailed police report can help build a strong case to help pursue damages.
3. Gather Information
Once it is safe to do so, evaluate the scene. Document anything you may find relevant to your accident, any weather or environmental conditions that may have led to the accident. Take photos of any injuries and property damage that may be present. If there are witnesses in the area, get contact information from them. A lawyer can later contact them for a thorough witness report on the accident if needed. The goal is to collect as much evidence as possible so that you can easily hold the other party accountable or your injuries.
4. Contact An Experienced Los Angeles Slip and Fall Lawyer
Even if you feel like you have sufficient evidence to prove another party was at fault, you still may not win the full compensation for your damages. An experienced slip and fall lawyer understands the costs that can be associated with recovering from injuries. They can build a strong case to help you get the maximum compensation for the accident.

FAQ

Slips and fall injuries can result in victims incurring medical expenses, being unable to work, and other economic hardships. Even if you can easily prove another party was at fault for your injuries, how can you be sure the compensation will be enough to offset the current and future costs of recovery? An experienced Los Angeles slip and fall lawyer will help ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

 

While almost 40% of slip and fall injuries can occur within the safety of your own home, other common places are:

  • Sidewalks and uneven or unkept walkways
  • Retail stores and shopping centers
  • Playgrounds
  • Workplaces
  • Stairwells
No lawyer can put a dollar amount on your case without performing a thorough case review first.

The important thing is that you speak with an experienced Los Angeles slip and fall lawyer to ensure you get the most compensation for your injuries.
