Injured in a Slip/Trip & Fall Accident?

Orange County Injury Lawyers Can Fight for You

Have you been injured in a slip/trip & 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/trip & 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.

  • They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

    Barbara M.

  • The entire firm was professional and supportive

    “I would highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone seeking a fair settlement as a result of an auto accident. The Firm came highly recommended to me and I understand why. They took the time to explain what would happen, they aligned me with excellent medical care, and they were able to negotiate a fast and fair settlement for my injuries. Throughout the process the entire Firm was professional and supportive.”

    M.S.

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

    V.O.

  • Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”

    Deborah V.

  • I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”
