Ventura Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers
How Do I Know If I Have the Grounds For a Case?
Stand Up to Negligent Property Owner
When you enter a property with the consent of the owner, you are automatically considered a licensee. In this relationship, the owner has the responsibility to make all efforts to keep you safe from harm while on the property. If you slip and fall because the owner is negligent in carrying out this duty, then you have the right to sue for damages under premises liability.
Injuries Resulting from Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can happen just about anywhere. Maybe you slipped on ice on a storefront’s stairs, or slipped in a grocery store on a puddle of pasta sauce that fell from a shelf. If you slip on a puddle of water tracked in from shoppers on a rainy day, or on a puddle of water in a bathroom from a leaky toilet, you may be able to seek compensation. Property owners are required to warn licensees of any potential slip and fall hazards and to remove those hazards as soon as possible.
Common injuries resulting from slip and fall injuries include:
- Brain trauma
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Muscle tears
- Torn ligaments
- Lacerations and bruising
Some of these injuries may require surgery, physical therapy, medication, or may cause permanent damage. If you suffer an injury, then we can help you recover damages. In some cases, a slip and fall injury may result in permanent disability, the loss of your job, and the inability to enjoy life as you once did. In these situations, you need to insist on compensation.
Common Hazards that Cause Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere. Whether you are at the office, a theme park, a concert, a store, a mall, or a pool, you may have the right to sue.
Examples of dangers that commonly lead to slip and fall injuries include:
- Spills in stores
- Staircases with no grip tape or with worn carpet
- Water tracked in during rainstorms
- Puddles from leaks
- Water drips or leaks in bathrooms
- Moisture on tile or marble floors
- Slick surfaces at pools and in other areas
- Cluttered or obstructed walkways
