Understand your rights after a slip-and-fall accident

If you fell and suffered injuries while you were in public, it can feel frustrating and overwhelming. The incident that left you injured may not be your fault, but rather, it may be the result of factors beyond your control. A slip-and-fall incident and other types of falls can be embarrassing and painful, but legal options could be available to you.

One of the most beneficial things you can do as a victim is to take immediate action to protect your interests after a fall. Even if you are unsure of what exactly caused your accident or who may be to blame, it is always prudent to know your options. Slip-and-fall accident victims sometimes have the right to seek compensation through a premises liability claim. 

How can you know who is to blame?

One of the most important factors in any injury claim is to determine who may be to blame or which parties are financially liable for the incident. This is not always easy to do, and it often requires an in-depth look into what happened. Property owners bear the responsibility of maintaining premises that are safe and free from unnecessary hazards.

The success of your civil claim against the property owner or appropriate party may depend on establishing a link between the hazard that caused your accident and the owner or manager's knowledge of that potential hazard. For example, you may need evidence of one of the following:

  • The owner of the property created the hazard that caused your accident.
  • He or she knew about the dangerous condition, yet did not do anything to fix it.
  • The hazard was there long enough where it is reasonable to assume that he or she should have noticed it and fixed it.

You will find it beneficial to seek guidance as you pursue compensation for the injuries and damage you experienced in your slip-and-fall accident.

Know your rights as an accident victim

Accident victims do not have to navigate the aftermath of their personal injury incident alone. Instead, they can secure the help of an experienced California personal injury attorney who can help them fight for a positive outcome to their cases.

A slip-and-fall accident may seem like a minor incident, but the injuries you experienced can have a serious impact on your life. By exercising your option for legal recourse, you can hold the appropriate parties accountable and seek the recovery you deserve.
