Fall injuries happen everyday, everywhere. But when the falls are not your fault, what are your legal options and how do you start the process? Commonly referred to as a slip and fall accident, Walch Law is here to help. We help individuals that have taken a fall on a public or private property in Calabasas and throughout Los Angeles get the compensation they deserve.
- Are slip and fall accidents hard to win? We will let you know when we learn the details of your fall but usually we can tell you in your initial free consultation the chances of your case, how long we think it might take and how much it is worth so that you have a clear idea of what you are getting into. The bottom line is this-- slip and fall accidents can be complicated and are often hard fought by the other side but if you were seriously injured or lost a loved one because of an injury that took place on another's property then you likely have a strong case. If you were clumsy and fell on your own and didn't need to see a doctor to get better, then that is no case at all. Property owners such as department stores, grocery stores and even airports make money off of your visits and as such owe you a duty to ensure a safe visit. Whether you fell because of a temporary condition (such as a wet floor) or a permanent dangerous condition (such as a faulty hand rail) you should not be the one paying for it and that is where we come in. There are a also a lot of slip and fall accidents that happen at private properties like when you are visiting a friend. These also have the opportunity to result in high financial settlement awards but once again are heavily fought by home insurance companies.
- What's the average payout for a Calabasas slip and fall? There's no average payout that would make for a helpful answer but we know that the answer to this question is more specific to you-- you want to know how much your Calabasas fall injury case is worth to decide if it's worth the time and effort of filing a lawsuit. For starters, let's dispel one common myth when it comes to hiring a slip and fall lawyer-- it is very very little work and effort on your part and it doesn't cost you anything upfront. The most you need to do are things you should be doing anyways- see doctors, document what happened when you fell and give us a call. It is that simple and something our clients are always surprised by. Now onto the main question-- what's your fall case worth? We can only really answer this after talking to you about the specifics of your accident but think of the answers to these questions to get a ballpark- who is responsible for the fall (a store, large building or government building means they have the insurance policies to actually pay), how much have you paid in medical needs and how much will you need (we work to get all this back and more), how much did you lose missing work and can you work going forward (this is a number you can know the exact amount of) and then finally there are the questions around pain and suffering and the actions of the defendant and both of these can be in the hundreds of thousands for the right case.
