WHAT IS A SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT ? ​

Sachs Burns, located near San Bernardino, is a law firm specializing in personal injury law. One of the biggest cases of personal injury we see are in slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents, also known as premise liability claims, happen when a property owner acts in a negligent manner and does not provide adequate safety for their guests or patrons. Individuals who slip and fall and as a result have an injury are able to sue for compensation for medical expenses (e.g. emergency room bills, ambulance ride, follow up costs, etc.) and pain and suffering (i.e. physical pain and emotional distress). Your lawsuit could also require that the liable party fix whatever caused your accident in the first place, which could prevent accidents in the future.

Who is susceptible to a slip and fall accident?

The short answer is that everyone is susceptible to a slip and fall accident. Going to the grocery store and there is a puddle of a clear liquid that you could not see; you walk in it and you fall. Slipping and falling have no age limits or restrictions. However, it is important to note that the elderly are far more susceptible. As we get older and reach a certain age, our bones become much more fragile and our body’s ability to heal itself is greatly reduced. Elderly individuals who are involved in slip and fall accidents typically have to spend extended amounts of time in hospitals and rehabilitation centers.

Insurance Companies and Slip and Fall Accidents

If you are in a slip and fall accident, most of the time the insurance company is considered the liable party, especially if it happened in a business establishment. Because insurance companies are incentivized to pay out as little as possible to victims, they will offer you a financial package that is typically far less than what you deserve and are legally entitled to. That is why we here at Sachs Burns strongly discourage you from speaking directly with an insurance adjustor. Let us do that for you. We know all their tricks and gimmicks, so we cannot be fooled, and we will not let them take advantage or intimidate our clients. We cannot emphasize not speaking with an insurance adjustor enough. After you accept a financial compensation package, that is that. There is no more revisiting the issue. In the eyes of the law, the guilty party is no longer liable. So, to get the maximum amount of compensation that you can get, let one of our experienced lawyers handle your legal affairs.
