These situations may result in brain injuries, broken bones, back injuries, internal organ damage, and more. Elderly people are most likely to die or suffer debilitating injuries as a result of falling.
Anyone who owns, occupies, controls, or leases a property has to adhere to a duty of care. This means that when an innocent person is harmed because of their neglectful behavior, they should be held liable. Sometimes, this duty also applies to parent companies or insurance companies affiliated with the property where you were hurt.
In all cases, we will need to prove that the defendant was negligent. For example, if the defendant knew about a danger and ignored it, he or she would be expressly liable. Also, if a condition on the property created the risk of unreasonable harm and it was not fixed, this would imply liability.
There are innumerable reasons for slip and fall and trip and fall accidents. However, your case will only have merit if you and your attorney can prove that you were not being expressly reckless at the time of the incident.
In most slip and fall cases, California imposes a two-year statute of limitations. This means that if you do not contact a lawyer and begin your case within two years of the date of your injury, the case is invalid. At MVP Accident Attorneys, we understand that each case is unique and calls for customized representation.
Whether you want to battle with insurance companies, negotiate a settlement, or litigate in the courtroom, let our slip and fall lawyers take care of the complicated legal matters for you.
