Slip & Falls

Personal Injury Slip and Fall Accident Attorney in Valencia, CA

A slip & fall or trip & fall accident case is perhaps one of the most common type of injury cases we see at the Law Offices of Barry Edzant. While the quintessential slip & fall occurs at a retail establishment such as a super market, slip & fall injury cases can and often do occur at people’s homes, public sidewalks, parking lots, and other public areas.

Especially with elderly individuals, a slip & fall case can be physically devastating which can include broken hips, legs, herniated discs, and other serious injuries. These actions are often covered by homeowners, premises liability policies, business insurance or through self-insured companies such as a large super market chain.

The difficulty in any slip & fall or trip & fall case is proving that the establishment, or property owner, knew or should have known of a dangerous condition, but failed to take appropriate measures to correct the defect. Gathering up evidence in these types of cases needs to be quick and efficient which includes preserving any surveillance tapes, photographs of the injury site, and any photographs of any injuries.

It is quite unlikely that the property owner’s insurance company will concede easily that the condition of the property was dangerous to the injured. These types of cases are therefore often litigated, and difficult to settle.

As slip and fall lawyers over the years, we have successfully pursued and resolved hundreds of these types of cases, and received appropriate compensation for victims of this type of accident case. Because of the difficulty of proving this type of a case, we are selective in the cases we undertake. We are always happy and willing to discuss your slip & fall or trip & fall case with you and to discuss this area of law with you further.
