Every week, you go shopping. Normally, you look for a place to park, and the parking lot is the best place for it. However, these can sometimes be dangerous, especially during cold weather and rainy or cold winter days.
Many parking lots are notorious for being slippery. Everyone can be caught off guard, including you. Once you slip and fall, you may end up with serious injuries. The question is what do you do next?
Luckily, the premises liability attorneys in Los Angeles at The Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg help people like you, who need guidance through the entire process of recovering the compensation for the damages obtained from the slip and fall accident. All you have to do is give them a call and schedule your free consultation today.
Here are the situations when you are eligible to sue after a slip and fall accident.
Poorly Maintained Property
When the word “property” comes out, people usually think of the inside of the store. However, whoever owns the store owns the property around it, including the parking lot and other premises around the object.
Because of that, every injury that occurs on the property allows the victim to file a claim against the property owner. In this case, if you received an injury because you slipped on ice or another poorly maintained surface, you may be eligible to file a claim against the property owner and seek compensation for your:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
However, in order for your claim to be successful, you are going to need an experienced attorney, someone who knows how to handle these claims properly. Do you have someone in mind? If not, feel free to contact Los Angeles Premises Liability Attorneys at The Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg and schedule your consultation as soon as possible.
If you get injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to sue that person and seek compensation for your injuries. As a pedestrian on the parking lot, you want to be able to safely walk to the store and back to your vehicle. But if the store owner did not take proper care of the sidewalk or parking lot, the floor could be wet and you could end up falling and injuring your back.
Another type of accident that could happen is you tripping over a construction material that was used but was not moved and stored properly. As a result, you ended up with an injury that prevents you from going to work and doing your daily choruses.
As such, you are entitled to full compensation for everything following the accident. The store owner may not know it at the time, but he/she will definitely face legal consequences for not properly maintaining their property, and not cleaning the ice or excess water.
