Slip and Fall Accidents Due to Uneven Flooring or Carpet

Devastating slip and fall accidents happen in the blink of an eye. One moment you are busy with your daily life and the next thing you know, uneven flooring, carpet, or a rug lands you in the hospital. It’s fundamentally unfair that you should incur high medical bills, lost wages and suffer from these preventable injuries. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced California slip and fall accident lawyer.

At Johnson Attorneys Group, we provide a complimentary consultation and won’t charge a fee unless we successfully resolve your case. At the end of the day, we hold negligent property owners accountable and will get you the compensation you deserve.

California Slip and Fall Liability

Slip and fall cases turn on the ability to prove that the property owner acted negligently. In terms of uneven or unsecured carpets and rugs, the owner has a responsibility to provide a reasonably safe space.

Seniors are particularly vulnerable to these devastating accidents. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, slip and falls are the leading cause of injuries to people over 65 years old, and more than 35,000 have been injured annually from carpet and rug incidents. Despite this common hazard, negligence can be a challenge to prove. Fortunately, our injury attorneys practice slip and fall litigation daily and are prepared to mount a case on your behalf.

  • Commercial Property Cases: Depending on the circumstances surrounding the slip and fall, a property owner, business owner or employee can be held responsible for the accident. If they created the condition, knew the condition existed and didn’t act to remedy it, they may be a direct cause of the injury.
  • Residential Property Cases: Homeowners, landlords, and tenants can be held accountable for slip and fall injuries under similar conditions. If a reasonable person would view the condition as a potential hazard and nothing was done to remedy it, they allowed the danger to exist. You would not be injured if it were not for their carelessness.
  • Government Property Cases: The same basic standards of negligence apply to government building and employees. There are more rigorous guidelines for filing a claim against such an entity and time, and award limitations may be in place. Gaining fair compensation for government negligence can be difficult. However, our attorneys know how to navigate the bureaucracy and earn a settlement.

The vast majority of these premise liability cases involve claims against an insurance company. Home and property owners overwhelmingly carry liability coverage for slip and fall accidents. Business owners and even many tenants have coverage.

If you are injured, document the accident, your losses, expenses and do not negotiate directly with an insurance company. Big insurance may try to give you a quick settlement at a fraction of what your compensation could total. They may also bar you from future benefits if your condition persists. Seek medical treatment then call an attorney.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
