Injured in a Slip & Fall Accident?

Orange County Injury Lawyers Can Fight for You

Have you been injured in a slip and fall accident? If so, you may be wondering who is responsible for paying your medical expenses, reimbursing you for lost earnings and providing compensation for the non-economic damages that you have suffered. According to California law, all property owners are responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe environment for their visitors.

This means that if they have knowingly or negligently failed to do so, they could be held accountable for any injuries that are suffered on their premises as a result. With the help of an Orange County personal injury lawyer from Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., you can pursue compensation from the party responsible for your accident. We can help you file a claim for damages that include:

  • Emergency transport expenses
  • Medical and hospital bills
  • Physical therapy expenses
  • Loss of past and future income
  • Pain, suffering and mental anguish

How can I prove that the property owner is at fault?

In order to recover financial compensation for injuries suffered in a slip and fall, you must be able to prove that certain elements existed at the time of the accident. For example, you will need to show that one of the following is true in order to establish that the property owner was at fault:

  • The owner or an employee created the hazardous conditions
  • The owner knew about the hazardous conditions & did nothing about it
  • The owner should have reasonably known about the hazardous conditions

The third situation is by far the most common, as most property owners are usually wary of admitting fault outright. Under these circumstances, you will need to show that another "reasonable" person in the same situation would have noticed, and remedied, the dangerous conditions.
