California summers! Pools are open. Beaches get packed.
Unfortunately, this also means that local hospitals start to see a spike in slip-and-fall accidents. People wipe out in oil-slicked parking lots or gas stations. Diners hit their heads in nasty falls on slippery restaurant patios. Are some slip-and-fall accidents the result of normal everyday life? Absolutely. We have two legs and sometimes they don’t do what we think they will. We’ve all tripped, slipped and fallen. All of us have, every single one of us. However, sometimes a simple fall is more than just that. Sometimes it is not the fault of a victim.
Sometimes the fall and the subsequent injuries are caused by the carelessness or negligence of others. Negligent slip-and-fall accidents like these always happen when we least expect them - when we are walking to our car, down a supermarket aisle, on an elevator or in a stair well. Perhaps your landlord didn’t adequately inform you that the front hall had just been waxed and you slipped and broke your hip? Perhaps a gas station didn’t clean up after an engine oil spill and you slipped and hit your head? Perhaps your child or your spouse fell and was injured so severely their lives will never be the same? Whatever the case may be there are literally thousands of ways for you to seriously injure yourself from a slip-and-fall accident.
