Ventura Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer
You Deserve to Be Compensated for Your Losses
While slipping and falling may be portrayed humorously on television cartoons, it is no laughing matter. These kinds of accidents are some of the most common in the United States, with over 9 million people injured every year due to this terrible scenario. Falls can lead to minor scrapes and bruises, but can also create much deeper issues, from lacerations to bone fractures to spinal cord damage. In some cases, they may even prove to be fatal.
When someone has been negligent in taking proper care of their property in a manner that led to your fall accident, it is essential to get the devoted advocacy of our Ventura slip and fall accident attorney as soon as possible. Many law firms avoid representing these kinds of cases since they can be more complicated, but at Zavala Law, PC we are dedicated to representing your needs in court, no matter the injury or venue.
Dedicated Advocacy for Every Situation
Because slip and fall accidents are so common, they can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. While it is true that certain occupations may encounter more of the circumstances that lead to falling, construction and factory workers are not the only ones who suffer from these falls. You might be a housekeeper, a custodian, a waiter, a customer, or simply a passerby, and the conditions left by a negligent person led to an unfortunate incident. No matter what, you can rely on our dedicated support, even in scenarios against a larger corporation or business.
Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
When it comes to determining liability, insurance companies will often try to shift the blame onto you, so they do not have to compensate you for your personal injuries. This is why it is important to prove that your injury came directly from someone else’s negligence and why you should hire a Ventura slip and fall lawyer as soon as possible.
Just a few of the common risks which might lead to an accident from a slip and fall include:
- Floors that have been recently waxed or vacuumed
- Uneven or loose tile or floorboards
- Mats, rugs, and carpets that have come loose
- Unattended potholes
- Liquid spills
- Unsalted ice (rare in SoCal!)
- Broken or absent handrails
- Absence of warning signs for dangerous conditions
- Poor lighting in dim areas
- Cracks in the street, sidewalk, or area where pedestrians frequent
What makes slip and fall accidents more complicated is that California law states that property managers and owners technically only need to provide “reasonable inspections” from time to time. The interpretation of how often a “reasonable” time is can be a grey area. Without knowledgeable legal advice, it can be difficult to prove that these owners were at fault for your injury. Fortunately, our knowledgeable lawyer at Zavala Law, PC has extensive experience in defending and prosecuting these difficult cases, and knows how to overcome the often employed dirty tricks used by corporations and insurance companies. Trust us to support you. No matter what.
