Slip & Fall Accident Attorney in Palm Springs

Slip and Fall Incidents Are a Leading Cause of Injury

Slip and fall accidents are among the most common type of accident. In many cases, individuals suffer nothing worse than minor bruising and are able to get right back up and walk away from the accidents. Other people are not so fortunate. In fact, slip and fall accidents are among the leading causes of serious injury and even death. According to statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the number one cause of injury-related death among adults over the age of 65. They are also the leading cause of non-fatal injury among children, leading to nearly 3 million visits to the emergency room on a yearly basis. Among people of all ages, falls account for 22% of paralyzing spinal cord injuries such as paraplegia and quadriplegia, and a staggering 35.2% of traumatic brain injuries.

If a slip and fall accident has left you or a loved one with serious injuries, then it is in your best interest to consult with a Palm Springs personal injury attorney from Stern Law Group as soon as possible. We can review the circumstances of your accident to determine whether you have grounds for legal action and discuss the scope of your injuries to estimate how much you could receive in compensation. Some falls are unavoidable or are due to the actions of the accident victim, but a large percentage of them are directly attributable to the negligence of the owner or operator of the property where the incident took place. By demonstrating that your slip and fall should have been prevented, you could recover compensation by suing under the legal principle of premises liability.

Proving Your Premises Liability Claim

In some cases, it is a relatively simple matter to prove the cause of the accident, such as if the victim slipped on a supermarket floor where there was a spill of liquid or oil. In other cases, it is necessary to retain the services of an engineer or accident recreation specialist to accurately determine the cause and to provide expert testimony in court. We have extensive resources at our disposal for investigating our clients' claims and go to great lengths to find the necessary evidence to win a case. Let us put our 150 years of combined experience to work for you!
