Experienced California Slip and Fall Lawyer Assisting Plaintiffs in Beverly Hills
Did you know that injuries from falls result in anywhere from $13 million to $14 million in costs each year? That fact is one of many provided by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), which emphasizes the serious repercussions of slip and fall injuries. According to the NFSI, falls lead to around eight million emergency department visits every year across the country, of which slips and falls specifically account for more than one million. While many people may not think of slips and falls as severely debilitating and sometimes life-threatening accidents, these incidents can result in lifelong disabilities and can even be fatal. To be sure, the most common injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents include the following:
- Fractures (of the hip, arm, wrist, ankle);
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs); and
- Spinal cord injuries (SCIs).
If you or someone you love sustained serious personal injuries in a slip and fall accident, a Beverly Hills slip and fall attorney can speak with you about filing a claim for financial compensation.

If you decide to file a slip and fall accident claim, what will you need to prove in order to be successful? Generally speaking, California law will require you to show the following:
- Defendant owned or controlled the property where you got hurt;
- Defendant was negligent in maintaining the property;
- You suffered an injury on the property; and
- Defendant’s negligence was a substantial factor in causing your injury.
How does the law define negligence? In brief, California law says that property owners have a “basic duty of care,” when it comes to the property. This basic duty of care requires a property owner to maintain the property so that it is in a reasonably safe condition. In order to do this, the property owner needs to take reasonable steps to discover any potential hazards. If there are potential hazards on the property, then the owner has a duty either to repair those hazards or to warn about them. If the property owner fails to do these things, she or he can be held liable for a person’s injuries caused by the hazards.
Damages in a Beverly Hills Slip and Fall Claim
What kinds of damages can you expect to seek in a slip and fall lawsuit? Typically slip and fall accident victims may be eligible to receive two types of compensatory damages:
- Economic damages: this category of compensatory damages includes objective monetary losses, such as hospital bills, prescription drug costs, rehabilitative treatments, and lost wages.
- Non-economic damages: this category of compensatory damages includes more subjective losses that are not monetary in nature, such as pain, suffering, inconvenience, or emotional distress.
