Auburn Slip-and-Fall Attorneys
Sacramento Trip-and-Fall Lawyers
Owners of grocery stores, restaurants, department stores, gas stations and other businesses have an obligation to maintain their property so as not to expose patrons to unsafe or dangerous conditions. If their failure to maintain a safe premise leads to a slip and fall or any other type of falling injury, they should be held accountable.
While slip and falls are common accidents, not all are the result of property owner negligence. For example, if the vegetable sprayers in a grocery store are over-spraying, slipping on the excess water could lead to an injury. However, if the sprayers just started to malfunction and there has been no time for the store owner to address the problem, they may not be negligent. On the other hand, if the problem with the sprayers has been ignored by the owner for weeks, that is negligence. At Frank Law Group, P.C., we will gather all of the facts to find out if negligence has taken place and to prove that the negligence caused your injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, you will find that our California attorneys have the skill and experience to pursue the compensation you deserve.
What to Do and What Not to Do After a Slip-and-Fall Accident
We encourage you to take the following steps after a slip-and-fall accident:
- Find out what you slipped on and preserve or document it, as well as the clothes and shoes you were wearing at the time of the accident
- Take pictures of the accident scene and your injuries
- Get contact information from any witnesses
- Get medical attention
No matter what, do not provide a recorded statement to the property/business owner or to their insurance company. Statements about your injuries or about who was at fault could be used against you. Talk to us first.
Representation From a Former Insurance Defense Attorney
In slip-and-fall cases, it is important to be aware of the insurance company’s motives. They are not out to help you. They want to pay you as little as possible. We know that, because our lawyers were previously employed by the insurance companies. Now, we use our knowledge of insurance company tactics to find the most efficient and effective way to get you compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs to which you are legally entitled.
Talk to us before talking to the insurance company. There is no financial obligation. You pay no fee for our services unless we recover money for you.
