Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2013
The Southern California Law Offices of Banafsheh, Danesh & Javid, P.C. have recovered a substantial sum in damages amongst their growing list of settlements and verdicts case winnings. This recent recovery represents a $425,000 settlement (Los Angeles Superior Courts Case No.: BC465989) for their slip & fall accident injury client who was injured while slipping on a wet floor on the way to the woman’s restroom in a super market in Los Angeles, CA.
According to court records, the accident took place when BD&J’s client was headed to the market with her sister and needed to use the restroom. Upon heading to the restroom the client slipped on cleaning water that was not properly disposed of on the floor.
Court documents showed that the injured suffered painful trauma to her right knee, hip and upper extremities. The force of impact left bruising and severe pain throughout her body. BD&J’s client was able to regain her footing despite the extreme pain felt and upon doing so, learned of the water spilled on the floor with her sister. Upon calling for help for a lengthy period of time, an employee was able to get a hold of the store manager and discuss the incident in detail.
Court documents that included the timeline of the accident showed that immediately following the accident, the injured was taken to the hospital where it was confirmed that she had received a left hip contusion, sprained left knee, back trauma and a neck sprain/strain. Under Civil Code, section 1714(a), “everyone is responsible not only for the result of his willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by want of ordinary care of skill in the management of his property or person, except so far as the latter has, willfully or by want of ordinary care, brought injury upon himself.”
With all the facts presented, the attorneys at Banafsheh, Danesh & Javid, PC were able to obtain the $425,000 settlement due to the negligence of the store manager and the contracted cleaning staff. According to BD&J’s managing partner Raphael D. Javid, “The very nature of slip and falls are a common phenomenon when it comes to establishments like stores and restaurants. Water and debris can be routinely found on the floor and cause serious harm to employees and patrons of those establishments. It is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure a safe and clean environment is created for any and all patrons of the establishment,” explained Javid.
