An Encino Personal Injury Law Office Reports on Slip and Fall and Trip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are characterized by some substance that is on the surface of the floor that causes you to lose traction and fall, while trip and falls are due primarily to some more permanent issue with the surface such as uneven tiles, tree roots, or pot holes in sidewalks. In either case, you need an Encino personal injury lawyer to explain your rights.

Who May be Liable
Any person who caused the situation that resulted in your fall can be liable, but the majority of cases reported by an Encino personal injury law office involve one of the following:

  • The owner of the property where the fall occurred
  • The occupier of the property where the fall occurred
  • The person who controlled the property

An Encino Personal Injury Law Office on Proving Negligence
In many circumstances, especially if you have fallen in a commercial establishment, neither the owner nor occupier actually caused the unsafe condition. In cases such as these, your Encino personal injury lawyer can nonetheless establish that person’s negligence if he or she can establish the owner or occupier:

  • Knew of the unsafe condition yet did not take steps to correct it
  • Should have known of the unsafe condition; should have known is based on a reasonable person standard.

Many Falls Go Unreported
Many people are embarrassed about falling and would just as soon forget about the incident. Additionally, they often fail to realize the extent of their injuries. In fact, an Encino personal injury law office sees many cases where the symptoms of injuries do not appear for some time.

Other Considerations
The evidence of the unsafe condition, especially in a slip and fall case, can be quickly removed. If the entity responsible for the unsafe condition is a government entity, the time to bring a lawsuit is limited. For these and other reasons, it is imperative to contact an Encino personal injury law office as soon as possible.

Josh was introduced to me when I had a car accident in 2019 and he worked fast and hard to make sure I was taken care of and he was always a phone call away if I needed something. I was set up with doctors, chiropractors, etc… asap after my car accident and he made sure I was good and well taken care of until I was back to 100%. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
