A “slip and fall” is the generic term for an injury which occurs when someone slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. The experienced attorney at the Drake Law Firm has personally represented clients in slip and fall cases against numerous supermarkets, municipalities, convenience stores, schools, department stores, office buildings, restaurants, and shopping centers.
Slip and Fall Injury
On behalf of our clients, we conduct an extensive factual investigation, and our team at the Drake Law Firm will determine if the property owner or someone else should be held liable for the injuries caused in the fall. In order to establish liability, we frequently work with engineers, investigators, industry experts, and accident re-constructionist. Under California Law, more than one person or company can be held liable for the injuries caused in the fall.
If liability can be clearly proven, it is probable that a settlement can be obtained at full value. In resolving a slip and fall case, those in which critical evidence has been obtained early are usually the easiest to settle out of court. However, if a jury trial becomes necessary, this evidence becomes the crucial factor in proving liability and damages.
