Getting the Legal Help You Need

Negligent property owners and managers can be held accountable for the injuries that occur on their premises. The property owner can be held liable for a Riverside slip-trip-and-fall accident when:

  • The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition.
  • The owner of the premises or the employee knew or should have known about the dangerous condition, but did nothing to rectify it.
  • The negligence resulted in injuries to a tenant, visitor, or guest.
  • The injuries caused the victim physical, emotional, and financial losses.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one-third of all traumatic brain injuries in the United States are caused by slip-and-falls alone. In fact, more brain injuries are caused by falls than car accidents. Falls can also result in other injuries such as broken bones that can leave a person disabled for an extended period of time.

Our lawyers have a long and successful track record of holding negligent property owners and managers accountable. Injured victims of slip-trip-and-fall accidents can seek compensation to cover damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation costs, permanent injury, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Slip-and-Fall Related Injuries in Riverside

The severity of your injuries often depends on a number of different factors. The elderly tend to suffer the most serious injuries in slip-trip-and-fall accidents because their bones are often weaker or more brittle compared to younger adults.

The position of your body or how you fall can also determine the nature and severity of your injuries. For example, if you fall on your wrist, elbow, head, or hip, you could suffer a devastating bone fracture. If you twist your ankle, knee, or wrist, you could suffer a debilitating tendon sprain or muscle strain. If you strike your head as you fall, you may sustain a traumatic brain injury or lose consciousness.

The True Cost of Being Injured

Premises liability injuries are not only painful, but they can also be very expensive to treat. Even victims with adequate health care insurance can expect to face mounting medical bills. The cost of emergency services, surgeries, hospitalization, rehabilitation services and prescription drugs can add up very quickly.

For many, the cost of a serious injury does not end with the medical expenses. Individuals who have sustained a serious injury may have to miss work and some may never be able to return at full capacity. Victims of slip-trip-and-fall accidents sometimes require modifications to their home to make daily activities easier, which can also prove extremely expensive.

Fall Accident Prevention

Property owners and managers have a duty and a legal responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for tenants, visitors and guests. There are steps property owners can and should take to ensure that their premises are safe. Wet surfaces are one of the most common causes of slip-and-trip accidents. Property owners should keep their floors clean and dry.

When the floor is wet, it is important that warning signs are placed to warn visitors. All aisles and passageways must be kept clear of debris and other tripping hazards. Broken stairs, bunched-up carpeting and elevators that are not flush with the ground should be repaired. If a dangerous condition has not been fixed, warning signs must be posted. Owners must provide proper lighting on their properties as well to prevent these types of accidents. In the case of shopping centers escalators must be repaired and maintained in order to prevent trip-and-fall accidents.

What Should You Do If You Have Been Injured?

If you are injured in a slip-trip-and-fall accident because of a hazardous condition, it is important that you take a moment to collect yourself. Once you have regained your composure:

  • Try to determine if you have been injured and if you need medical attention.
  • Collect as much information as possible from the scene of the incident.
  • Report the incident to the property owner and/or person(s) on duty.
  • Make sure you obtain a copy of the report.
  • Get medical attention right away and follow the doctor’s orders.

Obtaining photographic evidence of the accident scene can prove invaluable. Should you choose to file a personal injury claim later, physical and visual evidence from the scene can really help bolster your case.

If you have a cell phone, take photos of the dangerous condition that caused your injuries. Take photographs of your injuries as well. If anyone witnessed the incident, obtain his or her contact information as well. Eyewitnesses can help validate your account of what occurred.

How Do I Take Action Against the Property Owner?

If you have fallen and sustained an injury, you may be entitled to compensation if negligence can be proven in terms of the property owner and/or the on-duty staff. With over 43 years serving both Riverside and the Inland Empire collectively and a 99% win rate for our clients, you have nothing to lose and so much to gain when you choose Bisnar Chase.

Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I can’t really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as well as I could have hoped.

Bisnar Chase Review - Natalie

I’m so impressed with this law firm. I lost my mother because of a seat defect when she was rear-ended in an auto accident and Bisnar Chase stepped up and took our case. The staff is wonderful and Brian Chase took his time explaining everything via phone with me. I’m honored to have the best of the best working on our family’s behalf, trying to get justice for my Mom, because of a negligent car company still manufacturing faulty seats. I look forward to working with this firm and am hopeful for a positive outcome. Thank you so much, Brian Chase. I know you will work your hardest on this case. God Bless you.

Bisnar Chase Google Review - Lena

I wasn’t sure if I needed a personal injury attorney because I’d never been in a car accident before. I assumed I’d just go straight through the other driver’s insurance but that quickly became a nightmare. I spent months fighting over the simplest of issues about my case, which was 100% the other driver’s fault. I hired Bisnar Chase to see if they could just take it over for me. I was really impressed with how much they communicated everything to me! I suddenly started getting calls from the insurance company, imagine that. My final settlement was 6 times what I asked for to begin with. Everyone I dealt with was really involved in what was best for me, not the insurance.
