A slip and fall accident can cause a victim to suffer various injuries, ranging from fairly minor to severe. A few examples of injuries a slip and fall victim can face include:
- Broken bones;
- Sprains and strains;
- Injuries to the organs and soft tissue;
- Head trauma; and
Some types of injury can have severe complications, such as traumatic brain injuries following head trauma and severe bleeding as the result of a cut. In extreme cases, victims can die from their injuries.
Seeking Compensation through a Personal Injury Claim
Property owners have a duty of care to authorized individuals who enter their properties. The key word here is “authorized;” trespassers typically cannot recover compensation for any damages they suffer because of hazards on the properties they enter.
In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including premises liability claims is two years from the date of the accident. In cases where the victim’s injury is not discovered until later, the statute of limitations is one year from the date that the injury was discovered.
You will need evidence to support your premises liability claim. This includes evidence to demonstrate the property owner’s negligence as well as evidence that demonstrates your financial damages. Evidence you may use to support your claim includes:
- Your medical bill;
- Documentation of your lost wages;
- Photographs of the accident;
- Eyewitness testimonies of the accident; and
- The accident report, if you filed one with the owner of the property.
