Long Beach Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer

As you go about your daily routine, you encounter various situations that could lead to a slip-and-fall accident. You probably do not notice most of these hazards because they do not always lead to an accident. Other times someone might take a quick spill, get up, and keep moving, only feeling a bit embarrassed. Unfortunately, slip-and-fall accidents do not end that well for everyone. Some can lead to severe injuries, especially among the most vulnerable people in society.

Long Beach business owners and homeowners have a legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for visitors. Negligent property owners who don't uphold their legal duty put young children, older adults, and everyone else at risk for a slip-and-fall accident and potentially serious injuries. If you have sustained injuries in a preventable Long Beach slip-and-fall accident because of a negligent property owner, California law gives you the right to seek compensation for your injuries. A skilled Long Beach slip-and-fall lawyer can help you through the claims process and fight for you to recover maximum compensation for your injuries.

Causes of Long Beach Slip & Fall Accidents

A wide range of scenarios can lead to a slip-and-fall accident. Examples of these hazardous conditions include:

  • Old and worn floor coverings, such as broken tiles, loose carpet, and rotted floorboards
  • Loose, broken, or rotted steps and handrails
  • Garbage and debris in walkways, storefronts, parking lots, driveways, and other places with heavy foot traffic
  • Use or spillage of wet products like food, oil, cleaners, and water
  • Use or spillage of dry products like sand, dirt, powders, granules, and sawdust
  • Malfunctioning escalators
  • Poorly maintained walking trails and sidewalks

If any of the above scenarios led to your slip-and-fall accident and injuries, you might be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. A Long Beach slip-and-fall attorney can review the facts of your case and determine if you have a viable slip-and-fall accident injury claim.

Liability in Long Beach Slip and Fall Accidents 

Suffering an injury in a slip-and-fall accident does not automatically make the homeowner or business owner negligent and liable for damages. Your attorney needs to prove to the insurance company and the court that the owner was negligent. This makes slip-and-fall accident cases more complex than many personal injury cases, making it crucial that you consult with an experienced Long Beach slip-and-fall lawyer.

Successfully reaching a fair settlement or securing a verdict in your favor requires you to prove the following about your slip-and-fall claim:

  • The person or entity named as a defendant in your lawsuit owns or manages the property where your slip-and-fall accident occurred.
  • The defendant did not maintain a safe environment on their premises, nor did they warn visitors of potential slip-and-fall hazards
  • You suffered injuries because the defendant did not uphold their legal duties.

All property owners have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment for visitors. Those who breach their duty put visitors at risk for a slip-and-fall accident and injuries. Lawyers, insurance companies, and courts review several factors to decide if a property owner breached their legal duty. These factors include:

  • The likelihood of a slip-and-fall accident and injury in this environment
  • The potential severity of an injury
  • Whether the property owner had knowledge of the hazard
  • The financial burden on the property owner of fixing or removing the slip-and-fall hazard
  • Amount of control the property owner has over the hazard that led to the injuries

Courts typically hold property owners liable for damages if they had control over the hazard that led to the slip-and-fall, knew about the hazard, and chose not to remove it, fix it, or warn visitors about the potential danger.

Recovering Damages After a Long Beach Slip-And-Fall Accident

Severe injuries are costly. In addition to medical expenses, many people must take time off work to heal, losing income. You should not have to deal with financial stress on top of physical injury because a negligent property owner did not prevent your slip-and-fall accident. If you settle your claim or win your case at trial, you could receive compensation for:

  • Medical treatment costs, including transportation via ambulance, emergency room services, hospitalization, surgery, diagnostic imaging, follow-up doctor visits, and prescriptions
  • Estimated future medical expenses if a slip-and-fall accident led to permanent injuries that require continued care and treatment
  • Rehabilitation services with physical therapists, occupational therapists, mental health professionals, and other specialists who help injured people cope with the physical and emotional aspects of their injuries
  • Assistive devices like crutches, walkers, canes, and wheelchairs
  • Lost wages from time away from work because of the slip-and-fall accident and injuries
  • Estimated future lost wages when a slip-and-fall accident causes a catastrophic injury preventing someone from returning to their job
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Punitive damages if a slip-and-fall accident was a result of gross negligence or intentional harm

Your Long Beach slip-and-fall attorney will evaluate your case and advise you on which damages apply in your circumstances.
