If you or a family member has been injured in a fall in Orange County, it’s certainly understandable that you have a lot of questions. The California premises liability laws that cover slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents in Orange County can be complicated and leave victims feeling confused and helpless. If this sounds like your situation, here are some quick answers that may help.
It’s normal to feel a little lost and confused after you or a loved one is injured in a fall accident—or any kind of accident! Your first priority should be seeking medical treatment for any injuries. However, you should also immediately start taking steps to protect your rights just in case you need to pursue compensation down the road. An experienced attorney can help you gather more in-depth evidence if needed, but you can get started by keeping track of your medical visits and expenses, writing down as much as you remember about what happened, getting contact information for anyone who was there, and holding off on signing anything or speaking to the insurance company.
