Inglewood Trip and Fall Accident Lawyer

While most of us will fall numerous times over the course of a lifetime, mostly resulting in little more than some embarrassment, these seemingly minor incidents can have surprisingly severe consequences. Falling, whatever the cause, can inflict severe head injuries, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, and even wrongful death on victims, and can happen in any location. Owners of properties in Inglewood and elsewhere in California are required to ensure that their premises are kept free of any potentially hazardous or dangerous conditions, which may potentially lead to an accident. Any hazards arising must be remedied promptly.

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured due to a hazardous condition on someone else’s property, an Inglewood slip and fall attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg will work tirelessly to recover the full extent of compensation you deserve.

Common Types of Inglewood Slip and Fall Accident

If a hazardous or dangerous condition on somebody else’s residential or commercial property led to you sustaining injuries in a slip and fall accident, the property owner could be guilty of negligence and, therefore, liable to pay you compensation in respect of your injuries, medical expenses, loss of earnings and other associated costs. There is no reason why you should be left out of pocket through no fault of your own while laws exist to protect you.

A slip and fall accident can happen in many ways, with some of the most common scenarios encountered by our personal injury attorneys including:

  • Injuries caused by any dangerous conditions on the property
  • Slip and fall on a floor that is wet from a roof leak
  • Falling accidents involving tripping over uneven sidewalks in front of strip malls
  • Trip and fall over pipes sticking out of the floor in a grocery store
  • Slip and fall on surfaces that were freshly waxed or washed and no warning signs were posted
  • Slip and fall on ice or snow which was not cleared promptly
  • Trip and fall on a poorly maintained staircase
  • Trip and fall due to loosened or otherwise damaged carpeting or other floorings

There are many more potential causes that are not mentioned above, so you are advised to contact our Inglewood slip and fall attorneys as soon as possible if you feel you may be entitled to claim compensation. Remember that there is a strict legal deadline imposed on personal injury claims and, once this has expired, you will no longer be able to pursue the responsible party.

The most important task your lawyer will have is proving liability for your slip and fall accident. Although you may be certain that a hazard has caused your injuries, we must prove definitively that:

  • The property owner created a dangerous condition
  • The owner knew the hazard existed and did not correct it
  • Ample time passed in which the possessor could have fixed the problem before the incident occurred
