Slip and fall accidents can result in serious or even disabling injuries. At The Justice Firm, we work to protect those who have suffered injures because of dangerous property or premises. When you sustain serious injuries, it not only costs you in terms of medical expenses, but lost work as well. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may require surgery, rehabilitation, physical therapy, or even future medical treatment. We are aggressive, capable negotiators who will work with insurance companies to ensure you receive a fair settlement, or file a personal injury lawsuit when necessary.

Property owners and landlords are liable in the state of California for maintaining a safe property for others. When circumstances make an area unsafe for anyone who may come onto the property, it must be made known that the area is risky or hazardous through the use of signs, barriers, etc. Failure to adequately inform visitors, tenants, and others who may come onto a property results in the landlord or property owner becoming liable for costs associated with injuries. These costs may include medical, lost income (present and future, depending on the situation), emotional and psychological distress, pain and suffering, and more.
Insurance companies are not your friend; agents are trained to limit claims or even deny them. Never speak with the insurance company or agree to a settlement that may not be fair without first speaking with a skilled Los Angeles personal injury attorney.Contact The Justice Firm now
