- Pooled water

Our Ventura Slip and Fall Lawyers Investigate Accidents
When you slip and fall on someone else’s property and get hurt, you may not be sure why the accident happened. One minute you are walking along, the next you are on the ground and in pain. To identify the dangerous hazard and why it was present on the property, you need an experienced slip and fall attorney in Ventura to investigate your case.
A veteran premises liability lawyer at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will dive into your claim and gather as much evidence as possible, including photos of the area of the property, video of the accident, and eyewitness testimony.
We may recommend filing a lawsuit as soon as possible so we can gather more evidence. We may depose the owner, commercial tenant, or manager of the property. We may depose the employees on duty at the time of the accident. We will ask for copies of business records regarding inspections, cleaning, and maintenance of the property. We also will review a business’s records to determine if accidents like this have happened before, and if so, when and how frequently.
Through an in-depth and independent investigation into your slip and fall accident, we will build you the strongest claim possible for compensation.
Slip and Fall Compensation
If you are injured in a slip and fall and we determine the property owner was negligent in protecting you from a property defect, we will pursue compensation on your behalf. In many cases, we will negotiate a fair insurance settlement through homeowner’s insurance, renter’s insurance, or a business’s liability policy.
Your compensation may cover your:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Reduced earning capacity
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of consortium
If we cannot obtain you an appropriate insurance settlement, our Ventura slip and fall accident lawyers are not afraid to take your case to court and demand compensation from a judge or jury.
We are proud to have helped more than 5,000 individuals throughout California win more than $300 million in settlements and court awards.
