Trip & Fall Accidents
While you may not think of slip, trip & fall accidents as being a major financial problem in our society, the fact is that these accidents cost everyone millions of dollars per year. The Centers for Disease Control estimate that over one million Americans each year are the victims of slip trip and fall accidents, and that these mishaps make up about 15 percent of all workers compensation claims. This means that employers and taxpayers are all affected by the number of slip and fall accidents occurring all around us. Of course, this does not mean that the victims of these accidents are being paid a just settlement for the sum of their injuries.
Particularly in Anaheim, we see a lot of slip, trip and fall cases because of the national tourism and number of public destinations. Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm for example can pose many premise liability injuries.
What is Different About Slip and Fall Litigation?
Slip & fall lawyers work with the victims of these accidents to recover a fair amount from the employer, company, or individual that caused the conditions that led to the accident.
Slip and fall litigation is different from some other types of personal injury litigation in that the at-fault party may not have been at the scene when the accident happened, or may not have even been in the same location as the victim.
The victim and the at-fault party may never have met. All that is necessary for a person or company to be liable for a slip, trip or fall case is to create a condition that leads to the accident itself.
For example, an employee might mop a floor in a store and forget to put out a 'wet floor' sign. If an elderly lady is shopping and slips on the wet floor, falling and breaking her hip, the employee and the company may both be liable for her injuries.
Slip & Fall Liability
This situation actually arises frequently and points out another reason that consulting slip & fall attorneys may be a good idea for victims. The liability question in a injury case like this can be complex, as when one person causes the dangerous conditions that lead to a fall, another person is a supervisor of the at-fault party, and still another person owns the property on which the accident occurred.
It takes the knowledge and expertise of a professional slip and fall lawyer to navigate the sometimes complex relationships between at-fault parties and those who are responsible for the maintenance of the accident site.
Further, there may be a question of exactly how much fault each person bears under the circumstances. Sometimes employees are only following orders - does this mean they are not liable for creating the dangerous situation that led to your fall? An expert injury and accident attorney can help you answer that question and determine who is really responsible.
Slip & Fall Compensation
Compensation for a slip and fall depends on many variables. The type of injuries you obtained, the amount of time to recover and any long lasting medical issues as a result. Compensation doesn't depend on whether you are in Anaheim or another California city, but rather the extent of the injuries and the culpability behind it.
Many slip and fall claims are settled early on and reimburse your medical bills and time off work which can be a few thousand dollars -- but more serious injuries can lead to a jury trial if the premise owner isn't willing to pay you fairly. Those cases can go into the hundreds of thousands.
