Accidents involving people sliding and busting their duff may seem trivial, even comical, but they’re not. Slips and falls happen anywhere unsafe conditions exist, including an outside entrance to a building. The result can be anything from twisted ankles to brain hemorrhaging, even permanent paralysis. Slips and falls are serious business, but can lead to substantial compensation if you hire our Los Angeles slip and fall accident attorney help.
Compass Law Group, LLP goes after negligent business owners, landlords, corporations with poor safety practices, even hotel owners who improperly maintain their pool areas.
Los Angeles Slip And Fall Accident Attorney
Our reputation for settling cases where claimants slipped and fell speaks for itself, with many of our claims being settled before complaint is filed with Los Angeles courts.
Regardless if vacationing or working, individuals invited to dwell, work or play on someone else’s premises have rights strictly enforced under California law.
Under OSHA guidelines, for example, workers are entitled to have safe workplace conditions. This means common areas like walkways must be freed of encumbrances or impassible conditions like wetness or excess ‘junk’ protruding from a work area. When slips and falls are reported, employees are protected from retaliation, too.
Similar laws apply to patrons in restaurants, swimmers at hotel pools and tenants who pay landlords to live in safe conditions: areas designated as common walkways such as stairs or floors must be safely upkept. Our Los Angeles slip & fall accident attorneys have successfully litigated cases where negligence was willful, causing substantial physical injury.
In short, any place where there’s an owner, an invited person and legal responsibilities to care for invitees, there’s a potential premises liability suit if you’re injured.
Compass Law Group, LLP stands up for victims who are unaware what rights they have concluding an accident.
I Just Slipped. I’ll Defend Myself.
Constitutionally speaking, victims are more than welcome to defend their cases in court. However, no amount of preparation will suffice when fighting an insurance company, defendant’s attorney and witnesses sequestered until the very end. The layman could very easily get their case thrown out for procedural errors – even missing one word in their complaint.
With extensive courtroom experience and knowledge of premise liability law, our attorneys can take your case and professional prepare it for trial, although many never reach that point. Skilled negotiations with offending party’s counsel settles most claims we take, which allows victims to concentrate on recovering and returning to work, not to mention daily activities which their accident has prohibited.
Defending yourself in personal injury claims is never suggested because you’ll inadvertently leave money on the table.
Slips and falls are one of several premises liability case types we take. As with all cases Compass Law Group, LLP takes on, we do not collect money upfront.
If an employer, building owner or property owner in general was negligent in upkeeping their facilities, and their negligence caused you personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation under California law. Contact our firm immediately so we can work on your case.
We’re old enough to have the necessary experience, yet young enough to use the most cutting-edge technology and tactics, and are determined enough to fight and outsmart the other side, every time.
