SLIP AND FALL
You might associate the term “slip and fall” with questionable lawsuits brought by even more questionable lawyers, but the fact of the matter is that falls are a serious and costly health problem in the US. According to the CDC, 800,000 individuals each year are treated in hospitals for fall-related injuries, most often related to a head injury or a hip fracture. Falls are in fact the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, which can be devastating to a person’s livelihood and finances. In total, falls cost us $31,000,000,000 each year, with most of that cost going to hospital care. Falls are clearly no laughing matter for those who suffer the pain and high medical bills associated with them, but the personal injury attorneys at McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP are on your side in getting the justice you deserve in your Inland Empire slip and fall accident.
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP aggressively represents its clients by using all ethical means available to hold the responsible parties accountable for all losses and damages incurred.

LIABILITY IN A SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT
Not all falls result in a successful settlement or verdict, but if your slip and fall occurred due to the negligence of an individual or oversight of a premise owner or its employees, you may be entitled to damages.
The most common situation in which a plaintiff can obtain recovery is when a premise owner such as a retail store, restaurant, landlord, homeowner, or other property owner has failed to take due care to correct a dangerous condition on the property such as a slippery floor or damaged floor or steps, and a patron or guest falls and is injured as a result.
A key factor in determining liability is understanding whether the owner or one of its agents (e.g. an employee) was aware or should have been aware of the dangerous condition and yet failed to repair or block off the dangerous zone within a reasonable time. If not, then you may have a successful slip and fall lawsuit.
DAMAGES AVAILABLE FOR YOUR SLIP AND FALL
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident due to the negligence or unreasonable oversight of another, then we can work with you, your medical providers, and other experts to present a compelling case for full recovery of all injuries you have suffered, including:
- Hospital Bills
- Rehabilitation and In-Home Nursing Costs
- Lost Income and Reduction in Earning Potential
- Pain and Suffering
It is important to avoid signing any waivers or accepting any type of payment from a potential defendant without consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney first, as you may risk forfeiting your right to full recovery for all injuries suffered.
