NEWPORT BEACH SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT LAWYER
People routinely suffer serious 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 precaution.
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 being able to work 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. If you have been injured in a slip and fall or other premises liability incident, it is vital that you retain a qualified Newport Beach slip and fall accident attorney to advocate on your behalf. Call Younglove Law Group for a confidential and free consultation to see if you have a claim.
Steps to Take After a Premises Liability Injury:
This is not an exhaustive list, and every claim is different, but generally a plaintiff would be wise to:
- Take several photographs of the dangerous condition from different angles.
- Report the incident to staff, and file an incident report. Retain a copy if possible, even if by taking a photo of it with a cell phone.
- Get immediate medical attention. An ambulance report at the scene of the incident is often some of the best documentation to substantiate a plaintiff’s slip and fall injury claim.
- Preserve the shoes you were wearing at the time, if it was a slip and fall incident.
