We Will Investigate the Slip and Fall

One of the most important steps to take following a slip and fall that causes you harm is to work with a lawyer to perform an independent investigation of the accident. You should not rely on the property owner and their insurer to investigate what happened and why. You should not rely on their conclusions, which will keep their own best interests in mind. Our San Jose slip and fall attorneys will perform an in-depth investigation on your behalf. We will gather as much evidence as possible to determine the hazard that led to the fall, including but not limited to:

  • Photographs of the hazard that caused your injuries
  • Video surveillance recordings of your accident
  • Records of past injuries that occurred on the property
  • Property maintenance records
  • The police and incident reports
  • Eyewitness accounts

Common Causes of San Jose Slip and Fall Accidents

Over the years, we have found that some of the most common causes of slip and falls are:

  • Recently mopped or waxed flooring
  • Standing water
  • Spilled food and beverages
  • Unknown substances
  • Entrances without rugs or mats
  • Entrances with rugs, mats, or carpets without non-slip backing
  • Cord, debris, garbage
  • Poorly lit areas
  • Loose or uneven stairs
  • Weather conditions, like rain

Once we identify the dangerous condition responsible for the slip and fall, we will determine the party that is liable for compensating you for your injuries. This may be the property owner or a commercial or residential tenant.

Slip and Fall Compensation

Property owners and managers in California are required to keep their properties reasonably safe for customers and guests. When a property owner fails to do that and a dangerous condition on the premises cause you harm, you can and should hold the owner responsible. Through a premises liability claim, we will fight for you to receive compensation for your:

  • Past and future medical expenses,
  • Lost income,
  • Other-injury related expenses,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Emotional distress,
  • Disfigurement,
  • Disability,
  • Reduced earning potential,
  • Reduced quality of life, and
  • Loss of consortium.

The more serious your injuries, the greater the potential value of your claim. When you suffered serious or catastrophic injuries, especially those that require on-going medical care or make it impossible for you to work, you need to have an experienced San Jose slip and fall lawyer fight for you. By having an attorney gather and present evidence of the type and extent of your physical, psychological, and financial injuries, the greater the likelihood that you will obtain the maximum compensation possible.
