Burbank Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys
When you go for a walk, head to work, stroll through a park, or go to the grocery store, the last thing that you’re probably thinking about is slipping and falling and suffering serious injuries. Unfortunately, this is exactly what happens to plenty of people every year, many of whom are not only unsuspecting, but who would never suffer injuries but for the negligent actions of others.
At the law offices of El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers, our Burbank slip and fall accident attorneys can help you if you’ve suffered a slip and fall due to someone else’s fault.
WHO CAN BE HELD LIABLE FOR A SLIP AND FALL?
While some slip and fall accidents only result in minor injuries, others are very serious. When injuries are serious, those involved may incur economic and noneconomic damages. Compensatory damages may be available by filing a civil action against the liable party.
Any property owner who breaches the duty of care to someone who is upon their property could be liable for this breach if the breach results in injury. The duty of care is to remedy any known hazards within a reasonable amount of time (or provide warning of such hazards). This means that you could hold a retail store, grocery store, private company, private homeowner, government entity, commercial business, or another property liable for your slip and fall damages (depending on where the accident occurred and the circumstances of the accident).
DO I HAVE THE RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT?
Yes – you do have the right to file a lawsuit against a property owner whose negligence caused your slip and fall accident and subsequent injuries. However, the best course of action is usually to file a claim against the property owner’s liability insurance first, and then negotiate a settlement out of court. In the event that a settlement cannot be reached that both parties find fair, you can file a lawsuit for compensation. If this is the course of action, a court will determine liability and awardable damages.
HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE?
It’s important to start the claims process early – waiting too long can result in lost evidence and a more complicated process overall. What’s more, if you do decide to file a lawsuit, you must do so within two years from the date of your accident, which is the personal injury statute of limitations in California.
