STEPS TO TAKE AFTER A SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT
After an accident at a business or on another person’s property, an injured victim should take proactive steps to protect their safety and legal rights. Among other things, you should be prepared to do the following four things after a slip and fall in Baldwin Park:
- Get immediate medical attention. Nothing is more important than your health — emergency medical needs should always come first.
- Secure any relevant evidence. Taking pictures of the slipping/tripping hazard that caused the fall and getting the contact information for eyewitnesses will be helpful.
- Report the slip and fall accident. Make sure the business or property owner knows that an accident occurred on their premises.
- Call a Baldwin Park slip and fall accident attorney. Do not speak to an insurance adjuster without first consulting with an experienced lawyer.
SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT LIABILITY IN CALIFORNIA
A slip and fall accident claim is a type of premises liability claim. Property owners and property occupiers (renters) in Los Angeles County, CA have a duty to keep their premises in a safe condition for guests. The failure to do so may be negligence — which is the basis of most slip and fall accident claims. As explained in the Judicial Council of California Civil Jury Instructions, negligence is “failure to use reasonable care.” Some common examples of business/property owner negligence that can lead to a slip and fall accident include:
- Spills and leaks;
- Dangerously slippery floors;
- Broken floorboards;
- Tattered rugs/carpets;
- Cords and wires;
- Broken stairs; and
- Lack of adequate lighting.
COMPENSATION AVAILABLE FOR INJURED VICTIMS

Unfortunately, businesses, property owners, and insurance companies are highly aggressive in handling premises liability claims. They try to settle cases for the lowest amount possible.

- Emergency medical treatment;
