Los Angeles Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers
For over 40 years at Freeman & Freeman, LLP we have represented individuals who have been victims of slip and fall accidents throughout Los Angeles. Most commonly, these injuries result from the negligence of landowners, whether private or commercial, and the dangerous conditions which may exist on public or private property. Landowners and property managers are responsible for making conditions safe. If they have not, we can help you obtain compensation. We have done so for countless clients over the years and have helped them recover hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for their serious injuries. Slip and fall injuries often include:
- Whiplash, neck and back injuries
- Fractures and broken bones
- Brain injuries
- Knee injuries
- Hip injuries
These incidents can happen inside or outside of a building and be caused by such conditions as bad flooring, wet floors, poorly lighted steps and slippery stairs.
In the case of outdoor accidents, weather-related or hidden hazards can also be a factor. An icy patch outside a door or a crack in sidewalk can be the cause of an injury in a store or parking lot, for instance. Many people believe that only elderly or infirm people suffer slip and fall injuries but anyone can be a victim of such an incident. We have represented people in such cases from all walks of life and of nearly all ages. We can represent you.
Property Owners and Management Must Ensure your Safety
Property owners have a duty of care to see that their property is safe for every customer, tenant, visitor or passerby. This includes insuring that the building has no structural defects that could cause a slip and fall, trip injury, or other accident, both inside and out. A plaintiff or claimant also has a duty to exercise reasonable care, so if any action of yours contributed to the accident, you may share in the negligence. However, even if you were partially at fault, our lawyers may be able to get you the justice and compensation that you deserve but it is crucial in these types of cases that you call us as soon as possible.
- We will take photographs and measurements of the accident site immediately.
- We will hire a safety engineer to examine the site and determine whether any code violations exist.
- We will rely on accident scene investigators to identify evidence that may prove vital.
- We will use all of our legal experience and resources to present your case in the most favorable light.
Often times, a landowner will change the condition which caused the fall and claim that it did not exist. This makes a speedy investigation extremely important. Your attorney will also need to find out whether other people have had falls at this location which would prove that the landowner had notice of the condition.
