Slip and fall Injuries Caused by Poorly-Marked Steps or Ramps

In cities across California, people are injured every day in slip and fall accidents involving steps and ramps that are poorly marked. Between 20 and 30% of those who endure a slip and fall accident suffered injuries ranging from moderate to severe. When these accidents occur on ramps or stairs where adequate signage is missing, those injured may be entitled to receive compensation.

Victims should act quickly to receive the compensation they are owed. Contacting the owner of the ramp or stairs where the fall occurred, pertinent insurance companies, and the advice of an experienced slip and fall lawyer are important steps to take in the recovery process.

If you or someone close to you has suffered an injury from a slip and fall involving a poorly marked ramp or stairway, call Johnson Attorneys Group at 1-800-208-3538 today to receive a complimentary case evaluation.

California Slip and Fall Injury Laws

When a person enters a public or private space, they have a right to expect appropriate standards of safety to be in place including proper signs and markings for stairs and ramps. Spaces owned by individuals, groups, or government bodies are required to adhere to specific safety standards including adequate warnings on stairs and ramps. Anyone legally permitted to access such spaces may receive damages for any injury resulting from the negligence of the owner.

Under California personal injury law, negligence indicates a failure to adhere to ethical and appropriate standards which could reasonably prevent accidents and injury. In California, all ramps and stairways must be accompanied by adequate signage to warn users of the risk of injury from a slip and falls. If you have been injured in a fall resulting from inadequate warning signs, you may be owed fair compensation.

In some cases, obscured, faded, or fallen warning signs may constitute negligence. You may receive compensation if you sustain an injury due to obscured, damaged or missing warning signs if injury results, and if a judge determines that the owner of the property is responsible.

What Type of Compensation is Available?

If a judge believes you are due compensation for a fall involving stairs with inadequate or nonexistent warning signs, he or she will make an assessment of your losses to determine what you are owed. You can be awarded damages for losses and injury resulting from any fall on a ramp or stairway caused by inadequate warning signs. Pain and suffering, time lost from work, medical expenses, damages or missing property are examples of the types of losses for which victims can receive compensation.

Are You Injured

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. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.
