Slip and fall cases can be difficult to negotiate without a lawyer’s assistance. Unfortunately, many fraudulent slip and fall claims have led the courts to be suspicious of plaintiffs. Seeking damages for soft-tissue injuries such as pulled muscles can be especially difficult since medical scans may be unable to show proof of your injury. A lawyer from Nordanyan Law can help you gather evidence to prove your case and the property owner’s fault for your fall. We can take care of every step of your case, from collecting property maintenance records to taking on insurance companies on your behalf. If you wish to maximize your payout while focusing on your recovery, retain one of our personal injury attorneys for representation.

Almost all slip and fall accidents are preventable. The owner of a property, home, or business must take reasonable measures to prevent and remedy potential causes of fall accidents. If an owner negligently fails in this regard and an invited guest suffers a fall due to dangerous conditions, the owner may be legally responsible for economic and noneconomic damages.
Slip and fall accidents exist under the umbrella of premises liability law. Premises liability law states that if a person suffers an injury due to a defect on someone else’s property, the property owner could be liable for damages. Holding a landowner responsible for your serious injuries and related damages may take help from a skilled premises liability attorney at Nordanyan Law. We have helped clients with catastrophic injuries, including spine and brain injuries, as well as surviving loved ones in wrongful death cases.
How much a slip and fall case is worth is directly related to the severity of the victim’s injuries and extent of his or her losses. In general, slip and fall cases involving serious injuries will be worth a higher amount than minor injuries. You or a loved one could be eligible to recover the following damages, depending on the case:
• Medical expenses and disability costs
• Losses of income
• Past and future pain and suffering
• Emotional injuries
• Legal fees and out-of-pocket expenses
• Punitive damages

You do not want to wait too long to seek legal advice and file an injury claim after a slip and fall accident in California. The statute of limitations in California gives you no more than two years from the date of your accident to bring the lawsuit. With only a few exceptions, if you miss this two-year deadline, you will lose the right to seek compensation forever. Note, however, that certain situations will extend your deadline, such as if the victim is a minor. If you wish to bring a fall lawsuit against the government, on the other hand, you will have just six months to file.
