After a slip-and-fall accident, most people do not know their legal rights or the process of obtaining compensation. It is not their fault; they simply have never been through the process of bringing a personal injury case. Many people accept the settlement offer from the insurance company and move on. Or, worse, some people try to handle their own litigation or work with an inexperienced lawyer.
A slip-and-fall case is a complicated endeavor, and there is a lot at stake. Accepting a settlement offer or working with inexperienced legal counsel could cost you a lot of money in the long run. At The Herman Firm, our attorney and team can help you get the best results possible. Attorney Michael D. Herman has nearly 10 years of legal experience handling all types of personal injury claims. The firm will walk you through your case and fight to get you the compensation you deserve. We serve clients in Walnut Creek and throughout the Bay Area of California.
Premises Liability Claims
Although slip-and-fall cases are the most common, there is a wide range of related litigation claims involving accidents resulting from unsafe property conditions:
- Slip-and-fall accidents in grocery stores due to spilled liquids
- Slip-and-fall accidents in stores resulting from unsafe parking lots or walkways
- Accidents caused by items falling off shelves in stores
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Assault and injury claims stemming from inadequate security in public places
- Stairway accidents
Any type of injury that occurs because of an unsafe condition on someone else’s property could be the cause for a successful premises liability claim. In most cases, we need to show that the property owner or store manager knew about the unsafe condition, or should have known, and had adequate time to remedy the situation before the accident happened. Our attorney and team frequently use store security footage and witness testimony to establish the timeline and prove liability.
If there is any way to get you the compensation you deserve, we will find it.
Contact Our Firm For A Free Consultation
We offer free initial consultations, so there is no risk in talking with our attorney about your case. In fact, it is wise to call a lawyer immediately after an accident. Especially in slip-and-fall cases, security video footage becomes more difficult to obtain and witnesses’ memories of the incident become less reliable over time, so it really helps to get us involved as soon as possible.
