Carlsbad Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys
When you are injured in a Carlsbad slip and fall accident, there are few options available for recovering compensation to pay for your injuries. One such option is that of filing a personal injury claim/slip and fall claim against the responsible party. To learn more about your right to do this and how much you may be able to recover, consult with our Carlsbad slip and fall accident attorneys at the office of El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers.
YOUR RIGHTS IF YOU’RE INVOLVED IN A SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT
If you’re involved in a slip and fall accident, you may be able to recover compensation from the property owner where your slip and fall occurred. However, in order to do so, you’ll need to prove that a dangerous condition existed on the property, that your slip and fall was a direct result of this dangerous condition, and that the property owner breached the duty of care owed you by failing to remedy the condition within a reasonable amount of time.
(Note that even if you can prove the above, another key part of recovering the compensation award you deserve is the property owner carrying liability insurance.)
WHAT IS THE ATTRACTIVE NUISANCE DOCTRINE?
Keep in mind that if a child is harmed on another’s property, different rules apply. In this situation, the property owner could be held liable under the doctrine of attractive nuisance, which means that a property owner is responsible for keeping children away from objects or conditions on their property that a child may find attractive, such as a pool or a trampoline. A reasonable step that a property owner may take to prevent a child from entering their property might be to put up a fence, for example.
DAMAGES RECOVERABLE IN A SLIP AND FALL CLAIM
If you are injured in a slip and fall claim, you can pursue a claim against the responsible party for the full extent of the harm you’ve suffered. Damages recoverable in a slip and fall case might include:
- Medical expenses, both past and future;
- Lost wages, present and future;
- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses;
- Pain and suffering damages; and
- Any other economic or noneconomic losses.
Our lawyers can assist you by calculating the value of the damages you’ve suffered and building your case from the ground up. We will present your claim to the insurance company, demand damages, and negotiate your settlement.
