What is Comparative Negligence in a Slip and Fall Case?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

What is Comparative Negligence in a Slip and Fall Case?Minor trips and accidents are something that is going to occur every single day. While the majority of these are going to be harmless, it does not take much for a crack in the sidewalk or a spilled liquid to turn into a serious hazard to one’s health. When these types of accidents do happen, victims may be wondering if they can still receive some form of settlement if they were partly at fault. Here is a look at comparative negligence and how our Los Angeles slip and fall lawyer may be able to assist you with still receiving damages.

Unlike some other states, California law protects the notion that multiple parties may be partially at fault for almost any form of accident. This includes everything from multi-car collisions on the freeway to a shopper slipping on a spilled product in a store. In order to determine how much the victim receives, the insurance adjusters, legal representatives, or judge will take into consideration why the victim was where they were, if they were exerting reasonable caution, and how the entire situation played out.

These questions are going to become exceedingly important as the case plays out, and without our personal injury attorney in Los Angeles, many victims may find that they are either unpaid or do not receive fair compensation for their injury. If you or a loved one has recently been injured due to another party’s negligence, contact the Law Offices of Hamdam and Associates today to begin protecting your health and your finances.
