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.
