Ventura Slip & Fall Lawyer
They say that “accidents happen,” but that doesn’t mean they should. Some accidents would never happen if the responsible party took reasonable care to provide a safe environment. A prime example is a slip and fall accident. People don’t go around slipping and falling for no good reason. If you slip and fall somewhere, it’s likely because the surface of the floor was unreasonably slippery. Often, but not always, these accidents happen because the property owner failed to keep the premises clean and dry. It can be difficult to determine whether a property owner was at fault and prove a case against them when they are, but a premises liability attorney from Zavala Law can help.

What Are Slip and Fall Accidents?
Let’s cut to the chase: what exactly are slip and fall accidents? Essentially, these are accidents where an individual slips and falls due to a hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Typically, the hazard is a wet floor due to a food or drink spill, water tracked in from outside due to rain or from the beach, or because a floor was recently mopped or waxed. Any slipping hazard should be promptly cleaned up, and a warning about the wet floor should be put up until it is dry. In Ventura County, property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition. When they fail to do so, and someone gets hurt, that’s when personal injury law kicks in.
Why You Need a Legal Professional in Your Corner
Navigating the legal landscape after a slip and fall can be overwhelming. Between medical bills, lost wages, physical pain, and the emotional toll, it can feel like you’re climbing a never-ending mountain. That’s where we come in. With Matt Zavala’s expertise in insurance defense, we understand the tactics insurance companies might employ to minimize their payout. For instance, insurers will often claim the property owner didn’t have a reasonable amount of time to become aware of the hazard and clean it up before the accident happened. Or they will dispute how seriously you are hurt or how your injury occurred. Armed with our knowledge of insurance tactics and how to deal with them, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
