Fullerton Slip and Fall Lawyers
No one expects to fall when they are on their way to work, running errands, or out with friends. Unfortunately, slip and falls happen daily. Each year, serious falls send over 1 million people to emergency rooms. When you suffer a serious fall and are injured, you may be entitled to compensation. It depends on whether another person, such as the property owner, is responsible for the fall.

Who Is Liable for Slip and Fall Injuries?
After you are hurt in a slip and fall, you may be entitled to compensation. However, this depends on whether another party is legally responsible for the condition that caused your fall. Under California’s premises liability law, property owners owe their customers and guests a duty of care. If the property owner fails to inspect their property, make necessary repairs, and warn visitors about hazards, then the owner has breached this legally duty.
When your fall is the result of the property owner’s failure to uphold their legal duty, then you can file a slip and fall lawsuit against the property owner and seek compensation for your injuries.
Proving Your Slip and Fall Case
To establish your case, our Fullerton slip and fall attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation. We will gather evidence of what happened and why, including obtaining a copy of an accident report, photos of the accident site, any video of your fall, photos of your injuries, and eyewitness reports.
We may recommend filing a lawsuit against the property owner. During litigation, we will go through discovery, during which time we can demand additional information from the owner. We may ask for that person or business’s records regarding who was on duty at the time, who was responsible for inspecting the premises, who was responsible for repairing the danger or providing warning, whether similar accidents have happened before, and if so, how often.
We also will gather evidence regarding your injuries, including photos, medical records, financial records, your own testimony and journal entries regarding your injuries, a medical expert’s opinion, a vocational expert’s opinion, and an economist or other financial expert’s opinion.
Your slip and fall lawyer in Fullerton will use all of this information to establish your claim against the property owner and to prove the type and extent of your physical, emotional, and financial injuries.
