Every year, thousands of people visit the emergency room because of a slip and fall accident. The effects of these falls can vary, causing everything from a few minor bumps and bruises to skull fractures and even death. These accidents can be caused by many different conditions, such as uneven surfaces, wet floors surfaces, nursing home neglect and faulty stairs.
More than one million Americans have a serious enough slip and fall injury to require medical treatment. One serious slip and fall accident can cost a person thousands in medical expenses, lost income and a lower standard of living due to pain and immobility.
When people are seriously injured in accidents, it can feel as though they have lost control of their lives. Everything they gave priority to before must now come second to their medical and economic recovery. Ensuring that a recovery is effective requires quality medical care and the financial wherewithal to be able to afford that care, among other things. An Orange County personal injury attorney can assist a person through the complexities of the law with their expertise.

Property owners and those who simply occupy the property have different “duties.” We can explain the difference to you and determine who was negligent in their duty to keep the property safe from slip and fall liability.
Victims of harm caused by the negligent actions or inactions of others are entitled to compensation for all damages sustained, including medical bills, emotional distress, and lost wages and salaries due to the inability to work. Lawsuits for recovery of damages must be filed within the deadline set forth in the statute of limitation laws of the stated and or jurisdiction where the accident took place. Failure to file within the statutory timeline will result in the elimination of your right to financial recovery for losses incurred.
In the state of California victims of slip and fall accidents have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim in the court of law. Waiting to file a lawsuit until after this deadline has passed will waive your right to take legal action.
