Slip & Fall Accidents

California Slip and Fall Attorneys

Fighting for Slip and Fall Victims in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Koreatown, and San Diego

Slip and fall accidents can occur for a variety of reasons but are often associated with dangerous property conditions like wet floors, poor lighting, and uneven walking surfaces. Slips and falls can happen anywhere from a grocery store to a shopping mall, and many people – especially those who are over the age of 65 – sustain serious injuries in these accidents. 

Slip and fall accident victims who were injured as a result of someone else’s negligence may be entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses. At Carpenter & Zuckerman, our dedicated California slip and fall lawyers have represented personal injury victims for over 25 years and have consistently fought to obtain the maximum compensation possible in each case. Our case results speak for themselves: Our firm has recovered over $2 billion in settlements and verdicts since its founding.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall accidents tend to be more dangerous than many people realize. If a victim strikes a sharp surface while falling or lands the wrong way, they can potentially sustain catastrophic injuries.

Some of the most common injuries in slip and fall cases include:

  • Brain injuries. Many people hit their heads on the ground or other objects during a slip and fall accident. Some slip and fall victims may only suffer from a mild concussion as a result of the accident, while others may develop a moderate or severe traumatic brain injury.
  • Hip fractures. When a person slips, they may land with significant force on one side of their body, directly impacting the hip area. This impact can cause a fracture in the hip bone, especially if the fall is on a hard surface. Hip fractures are notorious for leading to severe pain, mobility issues, and a lengthy recovery period. They often require surgery and extensive physical therapy to regain full function.
  • Shoulder injuries. A slip and fall accident can cause shoulder dislocation. It’s also possible to injure the brachial plexus cluster of nerves that is located near the shoulder. If you injure these nerves, you may experience lingering pain in your arm, shoulder, and hand for quite some time after the accident.
  • Spinal cord injuries. When a person slips and falls, the sudden and unexpected impact can force the spine into unnatural positions, causing the vertebrae to compress or the soft tissues supporting the spine to stretch beyond their capacity. This not only results in immediate pain and discomfort but can also lead to long-term health issues such as chronic back pain or decreased mobility. 
  • Sprains. Slip and fall accidents typically happen without warning. Victims often do not have enough time to assume a defensive posture to protect their bodies from injury before hitting the ground. As a result, sprained ankles and wrists are common injuries sustained during slip and fall incidents.

Do not wait to seek a full medical evaluation after a slip and fall accident, even if you feel like you were not seriously hurt. Some injuries may not be apparent at first, and you need to connect the harm you sustained to the incident.
