Slip and Fall
If you have been injured on someone else's property due to the fault of another, you are entitled to damages. When filing a slip and fall claim against the responsible party or parties, there are certain procedural matters of which you should be aware. That is when you should contact our office.
Limited Time to File
California has a statute of limitations, which limits the amount of time one has to bring a personal injury action. If you were injured on public property, you may have to give notice to the appropriate governmental entity sometimes within as little as 30 days from the date of premises liability injury.

If you fail to give the appropriate notice or bring your legal action within the relevant timeframes, you might lose your ability to recover for your slip and fall injuries altogether. Consequently, it is very important to contact our office as you are injured to ensure that your rights are fully protected.
Different Levels of Negligence
For you to obtain compensation for a slip and fall injury sustained on another's property, there must be a responsible party whose negligence caused the injury. Even if you are only partially at fault for your own injury, you might still be able to obtain money damages, but the dollar amount might be reduced.

We will review your slip and fall case and other relevant information. If there was negligence at any level, you are entitled to damages. We will vigorously represent you throughout the entire process to ensure your rights are protected and you recover the damages you deserve.

  possible to capture the condition at the time of your fall.

Take the name, phone number, and address of any potential witness.
Save the clothing, including the shoes, that you were wearing at the time you fell.
