Slip and Fall Accident Attorney in California
Personal Injury Lawyer - Protecting Victims of Slip & Falls
Slip and fall accidents should never be taken lightly. While it's true
that many of these accidents are minor, studies from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) reveal that falls are the leading cause of
non-fatal injuries for all children up to 19 years old, and the leading
cause of injury deaths for elder Americans aged 65 and older. Slip and
falls are also the leading cause of injury and
deaths at the work place.
Death and other life-changing injuries, like head, neck and
spinal cord injuries, can be emotionally and financially catastrophic to victims and their
families, especially when these injuries are caused by the avoidable negligence
of others. If you or someone you love was injured or killed in a slip
and fall accident caused by the negligence of others, you'd be well
advised to contact an experienced California personal injury lawyer right
away. Depending on your case, you may be entitled to seek damages from
all liable parties, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, the
loss of past and future earning capacity and more.
Types of Slip and Fall Injuries in Northern California
Slip and fall injuries can occur anywhere, indoors or outdoors, including
but not limited to, private residences, public sidewalks, commercial buildings
and property, hospitals, nursing homes and even government property. No
matter if the injury occurs at the mall, the grocery store, a neighbor's
house, the post office, at work or at school, if the accident and resulting
injury or death is the result of negligence on the part of individuals
or organizations, the victims and their families are entitled by law to
seek compensation for damages.
Negligence is generally considered to be an act or failure to act within
a level of care considered reasonable under the circumstances, and which
results in the injury of another. Types of
serious injuries often associated with slip,
trip and fall
personal injury cases can include death, head and
brain injuries, neck, back and spinal cord injuries,
paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia, and broken bones to name a few.
