Secure Your Slip & Fall Injury Entitlements With Proven Personal Injury Attorneys

If you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident at someone else’s home or business, you may be wondering who is responsible. 

Specifically, 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 injuries suffered on their premises.

With legal guidance from the personal injury attorneys at Cohn & Swartzon, you can successfully pursue compensation from the party responsible for your accident.
