Are Business Owners Responsible for My Injuries?
In many slip and fall cases, there is a good chance that a property owner or premises manager is responsible. All businesses that open themselves up to the public have a legal obligation to keep their property safe for customers. If an accident occurred as a result of dangerous conditions on the property (such poor lighting, hazardous debris, slippery surface, worn carpeting, etc.), the store can be held liable.
Common places where slip and falls occur include:
- Parking lots
- Shopping malls
Even if the owner did not create the hazard, if he or she knew about it or should have known about it, then he or she can be held responsible. For example, if you slipped on a spill that employees failed to clean up in a timely manner or if they failed to warn patrons, then the store can be held liable.
What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident
After a slip, trip, or fall accident, seek medical attention. If you are unable to move, call 911, otherwise schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. Injures can include broken bones, head and neck injuries, concussion, hip injuries, bruising and contusions, and more. Your doctor will not only begin treatment to ensure you recover, but they will also document your injuries if you decide to pursue a claim. It is also important that you schedule and keep any follow-up appointments so your doctor can note and treat any worsening symptoms.
After your injury, California allows you two (2) years to file a lawsuit for premises liability. The clock begins ticking on the date you were injured and runs out faster than most people expect. If you do not file an injury claim within the statute of limitations, you will not receive compensation for your injuries.
Immediately following the accident, document the scene. Take pictures, get the contact information of any potential witnesses, and keep records while your memory is fresh. This documentation can help strengthen your claim for compensation.
How Our Pasadena Slip and Fall Injury Attorneys Can Help
If you slipped and fell, you may have sustained serious injuries. You will need compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, and more. Before you choose to approach the insurance company alone, it is important to remember that insurance companies try their hardest to minimize the amount of money they pay out. Because of this, we advise that you do not make any statements insinuating fault or give recorded statements to insurance adjusters without first consulting a knowledgeable lawyer about your rights.
Before speaking to an insurance adjuster, speak with KP Law. Our team will investigate every aspect of the accident to create a compelling case. We will fight hard to maximize your compensation within your case. Remember: you don’t pay us a penny if we lose your case. This is how you can trust us to deliver results.
