You were seriously injured when you slipped on or tripped over some surface condition. Are you entitled to compensation and recovery of lost wages for your injuries and losses? Maybe. It depends on whether the condition posed an unreasonable risk of harm — whether it was clearly a hazard.
Most of these types of cases are difficult. But if you sustained a severe injury due to an apparent hazard or dangerous situation, we will do everything necessary to maximize your results and get you fully compensated. There are recognized safety standards for the slipperiness of commercial floors, the rise and run of stairway steps, for railings, elevated surfaces, and for excavations. Jim and Eric Traut have had dozens of jury verdicts and large settlements involving trip/slip/fall injuries, including a $1.4 million verdict in a slip injury case, which was the largest slip injury verdict ever in Orange County at the time.
