Orange County Slip and Fall Attorney
Slip, trip and falls often result in injury to the back, neck, or a limb, such as when the victim tries to break his fall by extending an arm. One complicating factor in slip and fall accidents is that often the injuries are to the soft tissues, which are not generally measurable with traditional equipment like X-rays. The insurance company may argue that the victim’s injuries were not as great as claimed, or even that he was not truly injured at all.
Proving a Slip and Fall with an Orange County Accident Attorney
To win a slip and fall case, you will generally have to show that the property owner was negligent or careless in maintaining the property. Property owners have the legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors and others lawfully on the property. A Orange County accident attorney can explain to you that if a property owner fails to take certain basic steps, the owner may be responsible for any injuries that occur on the property.
