If you have fallen at a hotel in Orange County and sustained serious injuries, you may have the option of pursuing a California personal injury attorney claim to recover compensation for your medical care and other expenses. However, you should be aware that, after a slip-and-fall accident in Orange County, it is up to you and your attorney to prove that the hotel was negligent and should be held responsible for your fall.
Unfortunately, in many cases, this can be difficult to prove, especially if you wait too long to take action or if evidence has vanished. You will need excellent documentation of your medical care related to the fall, the conditions that caused your fall, the incident report from the hotel, photographs, any available security tapes, and more, but an injured victim may have difficulty obtaining this information on her own. Additionally, the hotel or the hotel’s insurance company may be pressuring you to accept a settlement, admit your own fault, or even sign away your rights.
You don’t have to go through a personal injury claim alone. You can speak with an experienced Anaheim injury attorney who will evaluate your case for free, provide direction, and clearly explain the options available to you after a slip-and-fall injury in an Orange County hotel.
