Slip and Fall Lawyer

A slip and fall accident can happen in an instant and cause long-lasting harm to the victim and their family. 

If your fall injury was caused by another party's negligence, you deserve compensation for your physical harm, medical bills, and more.

The fall lawyers at Landay Roberts in San Diego, CA, have earned widespread acclaim for successfully representing injured clients. 

Compensation Can Be Substantial In a Fall Case

Some people do not pursue a lawsuit following a slip and fall accident because they are unaware of the potential compensation available to them. 

Many states limit the amount of compensation available in a personal injury or wrongful death case. However, California does not. This means that the right personal injury lawyer can obtain a truly life-changing verdict or settlement on your behalf. Areas you can be compensated for include:

  • Physical Pain
  • Mental Anguish
  • Property Damage
  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Reduced Earnings

What If I'm Partially At Fault?

Another aspect of California law that can be beneficial to victims of slip and fall accidents is its use of pure comparative negligence. This framework allows victims to receive compensation even if they were partially responsible for their slip and fall accident. Pure comparative negligence laws distribute compensation proportionally based on how responsible each party is for an accident.

If you are found to be 10% responsible for the accident, you can receive 90% of the total compensation. Similarly, if you are found 40% responsible, you can only receive 60% of the total compensation.

Since compensation in these cases can be very high, even a difference of a few percentage points of fault may add up to many thousands of dollars gained or lost. Hiring San Diego slip and fall lawyers who can truly persuade a judge or jury is paramount.  

Great Praise from a Pleased Client

"Mr. Landay assisted my dad and I with a case a couple years ago and we have not forgotten about this man. He was very thorough, direct, and helpful throughout the entire process. My dad doesn’t tend to trust many attorneys, but ended up trusting Mr. Landay due to the professionalism we experienced from him." Melvin

The Clock Is Ticking on Your Fall Case

Unfortunately, statute of limitations laws place hard deadlines on when a fall case must be filed by. Failing to meet your deadline will likely result in losing the ability to be compensated for your fall injury. These deadlines remain the same regardless of whether you are suing for a broken ankle or more serious effects like a traumatic brain injury

Personal Injury

California's statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of your fall.

Wrongful Death

If you are seeking to file a wrongful death lawsuit due to the tragic passing of a loved one, your statute of limitations is two years from the date they passed away.

Property Damage

A lawsuit seeking compensation strictly for property damage gives victims three years from the date of the fall to file. 

Government Claim

The deadline to file an administrative claim against a government agency for your slip and fall is only 6 months from the incident.

Trespassers Can File Lawsuits

Historically, plaintiffs in California premises liability lawsuits were divided into three categories: they were either an invitee, licensee, or trespasser. Trespassers were owed no duty of care by property owners.

A 1968 court decision reversed this way of thinking and established the precedent that property owners owe a duty of care to all three categories. This means that even if you knowingly trespassed, you may still be able to file and win a premises liability lawsuit. 

You Can Help Our Fall Attorneys

Suffering from a slip and fall accident and all of the harm it caused can sometimes make a victim feel powerless. This is not the case. In fact, there are several steps you can take to improve the odds of receiving a favorable verdict or settlement.

Save Any Evidence

Property owners and their attorneys will argue that you were the sole cause of your slip and fall accident. If you have any photographs, videos, or other documentation of your fall, you should duplicate it on multiple devices and send it to us. Our fall attorneys know how to identify crucial evidence and persuasively present it to judges and juries.

Get Medical Attention

Some fall victims try and tough out their injuries. While this can be tempting, it is unwise. Failing to seek medical attention can be used to argue that you were not really hurt by your slip and fall. Seeing a doctor generates critically important medical records that can be used to bolster your case. A doctor may also find injuries you are currently unaware of.

Let Us Handle Communication

The negligent property owner's insurance representatives are not your friend. They often reach out to try and obtain quotes from you that can be used to mislead a judge or jury. They may even offer you a quick settlement that can seem like a lot of money now but that doesn't truly cover your losses. Refer all communication to us. Our attorneys will handle everything. 

Falls Are Common

The CDC states that over 25% of senior citizens fall each year. Tragically, less than half tell their doctor. If you or a loved one has had a fall accident, schedule appointments with our San Diego attorneys and your physician.
