Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Slip and fall accidents are becoming a more and more common occurrence in our country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that over 1 million Americans were involved in one of these accidents each year in the U.S.. Of those million accidents, 17,000 incidents prove to be fatal, with a large portion of the injuries occurring in American workplaces. In fact, 15 percent of all job related injuries are of the slip and fall variety.
In response to the increase in these cases, the partners at BD&J Law are making themselves available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to those individuals who have questions regarding a slip and fall accident they were involved in.
As a Los Angeles slip and fall attorney,
partner and co-founder of the firm, Kevin Danesh has seen and dealt with these types of incidents in the past. According to the section of his firm’s website devoted to slip and fall accidents (http://www.bdjinjurylawyers.com/slip-fall-lawyers.aspx) his firm has handled many slip and fall claims to great success.
“Slip and fall accidents can happen anytime, anywhere” remarks Danesh. “They can also be very complex cases, which require experience and knowledge of the law when determining liability.”
Danesh explains that examining the facts surrounding an accident is necessary to get a clear picture of who may be held liable for injuries that are the result of slip and falls. Generally speaking, the fall must be caused by a dangerous or hazardous condition that the property owner was aware of for liability to be established.
Asking questions like; was the accident caused by poor lighting? If it was caused by a spill, was the spill in place for a long period of time? Did the property owner know about it? Also, were you authorized to be in the area where the accident happened? And would a ‘reasonable individual’ be able to avoid the accident altogether? These are all questions that can help determine liability in cases like these, explained Danesh.
Danesh also explained that it is important to realize that slipping on a spill or tripping over an obstacle, by itself, does not necessarily mean that the property owner is liable for your injuries. This is especially the case if they took steps, such as placing a yellow hazard sign on a wet floor, or if the spill just happened, it can be hard to prove that the property owner was negligent.
