The woman, a client of the Law Offices of Banafsheh, Danesh & Javid, P.C., was severely injured while walking up to a local restaurant and tripping over a camouflaged parking barrier in Los Angeles, CA.

We were able to secure the amount of compensation that we did, through our experience and unwavering dedication to our clients,” explained Banafsheh.

The Southern California Law Offices of Banafsheh, Danesh & Javid, P.C. have once again won an impassioned case in their long list of settlement and verdict victories. This recent success represents a $500,000 settlement for their slip & fall accident injury client (Los Angeles Superior Court Case No.: BC502131) who was severely harmed when she tripped over an unattended and camouflaged parking barrier in the parking lot of a local restaurant in Los Angeles, CA.

According to court records, the incident occurred when BD&J’s client was walking across the parking lot of a local shopping center, with the intention of going to a fast-food establishment. While she approached the restaurant she tripped over a parking space barrier. BD&J’s client was unable to discern the parking barrier due to it being covered over with asphalt, making it blend into its surrounding area.

Court documents submitted by BD&J Law claimed that the blending of the parking barrier and the asphalt created a camouflaged appearance. Additionally, the overall condition of the parking barrier, which had a depression in front of it that had clearly existed for a substantial amount of time, added to the danger of the premises. The injuries suffered were quite severe and the injured sustained multiple facial and head injuries causing a concussion and a contusion.

BD&J’s client also experienced continuous pain within the elbows and knees, requiring extensive physical treatment. 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 the facts presented, the attorneys at Banafsheh, Danesh & Javid, PC were capable of obtaining a $500,000 settlement for their client. According to BD&J’s managing partner Sean Banafsheh,

“Slip and fall accidents of this nature are quite common and the owners of these types of establishments must always ensure that their areas of business are maintained and made secure for both employees and their customers. We were able to secure the amount of compensation that we did, through our experience and unwavering dedication to our clients,” explained Banafsheh.
