Our Anaheim Slip and Fall Attorneys Protect You When Injuries Occur
Slip and fall accidents are a major public health issue. According to the National Safety Council, they are a leading cause of death and disability while leaving close to nine million people with serious injuries each year.
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, Inc., we help victims get the compensation they need for medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses they suffer when slip and fall injuries occur. With decades worth of combined experience serving people throughout our community, our Anaheim slip and fall attorneys represent clients who suffer the following types of injuries:
- Strains, sprains, and tears impacting muscles and other soft tissues;
- Broken bones and dislocated joints;
- Severe cuts and lacerations;
- Herniated discs and other types of back or neck injuries;
- Head injuries, such as concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Generally referred to as ‘accidents’, the fact is, slip and falls often occur due to the negligence of property owners. In these situations, we can help you hold them liable for the expenses you incur as a result.
Situations In Which Property Owners Can Be Held Responsible For Your Injuries
Property owners have a legal duty to maintain their walkways, buildings, and other structures, preventing problems that could pose hazards to visitors and warning them of any dangers that do exist. Under the California Civil Code, the owners or managers of the premises can be held legally liable for damages you suffer for failing to do so.
At Harris Personal Injury Law, Inc., our Anaheim slip and fall attorneys represent clients in premises liability claims. These include situations where slip and fall injuries occur as a result of the following:
- Wet, slippery floors due to spills or condensation;
- Torn carpeting or loose flooring tiles;
- Cracks in walkways or uneven paving stones;
- Crowded, cluttered aisles and hallways;
- Areas under construction or in the process of renovations;
- Unguarded heights and those that lack protective warnings;
- Stairwells that are poorly lit or lack handrails.
In these and other cases, the negligence of the property owner is the underlying cause of your injuries. As a result, you may be entitled to compensation either through an insurance claim or by filing a lawsuit.
What Types of Compensation Am I Entitled To For Slip and Fall Injuries?
When slip and fall accidents happen, you may be entitled to file a claim against the property owner’s insurance company. However, be aware that these companies are a for-profit business. Among the various ways they protect their bottom line is by denying claims or downplaying the amount of compensation victims are entitled to.
Before making any statements to an insurance representative or accepting a settlement that is likely less than what you deserve, contact our Anaheim slip and fall attorneys first. A member of our legal team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer your call and can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. In the event a fair settlement cannot be reached, we can advise you on your rights in filing a premises liability lawsuit. Depending on the situation and the extent of your injuries, compensation available in this type of claim includes:
- Economic damages: These reimburse you for actual costs, such as current and future medical expenses, lost wages, and future losses in income due to ongoing disabilities.
- Non-economic damages: These reimburse you for more intangible losses, such as for the pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment in life you experience as a result of your injuries.
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, Inc., we have been successful in obtaining settlements and judgments for clients in slip and fall cases totaling millions of dollars. Check out our case results and contact our Anaheim slip and fall attorneys to discuss how we can help in your claim.
