Newport Beach Slip And Fall Accident Lawyer
People routinely suffer severe injuries due to dangerous conditions on others’ properties. These injuries are often caused by improper maintenance, poor design, lack of adequate security, or merely neglecting to take proper precautions.
Slip and fall accidents and other accidents that result from dangerous conditions can result in severe injuries, especially to the elderly. They typically require extensive medical treatment, which can prevent the injured person from working for an extended period of time.
Because the plaintiff bears the burden to prove their claim and identifying the liable party is often less straightforward than in an automobile accident, for example, landowners and leaseholders will move quickly to deny responsibility, potentially even blaming the plaintiff for their own injuries.
In the unfortunate event you have been injured in a slip and fall or other premises liability incident in Newport Beach, it is vital that you retain a qualified Newport Beach slip and fall accident lawyer to advocate on your behalf. Call Younglove Law Group Personal Injury & Accident Attorneys for a confidential and free consultation to see if you have a claim.
Frequently Asked Questions
How can a slip and fall accident be proved?
To prove a slip and fall accident, you must demonstrate that the defendant who was in control of the property negligently maintained it or at least failed to warn of a dangerous condition on the premises and that the harm done to you was the result of this negligence. After a slip and fall accident, it is vital that you document all evidence by photographing the dangerous condition that caused your injury, note any surveillance cameras that may have recorded the incident, and document the incident by filing an incident report.
What should I do after a slip and fall accident?
After a slip and fall accident, you should immediately document all available evidence by photographing what caused the slip and fall, filing an incident report, noting any surveillance cameras, and recording witness statements. Your next priorities after a slip and fall accident should be to seek medical treatment as soon as possible, then to contact an experienced slip and fall attorney for guidance.
What if someone slipped or fell on my property?
If you currently occupy the property, you may be liable for their damages if there was a dangerous condition on your property that caused them to slip or fall. If someone else currently occupies the property, however, they may be liable instead of you. Your insurance carrier will be able to assist you with determining who is at fault, and it would be wise for you to contact an experienced slip and fall attorney for advice.
