The “End of the Santa Fe Trail” El Monte is a beautiful city where most residents feel safe. Unfortunately, dangerous slip and fall accidents happen everywhere. According to The Los Angeles Times, the Insurance Information Institute reports there are nearly 3 million falls each year, which includes 14,000 fatalities. From walkways to sidewalks, shopping malls and movie theatres, public parks, schools, and the common areas of apartment buildings, there may be hazards around every corner. Though most property owners are responsible and maintain a safe environment for the public, some cut corners to save money, and thus allow a dangerous situation to arise. If you’ve been hurt due to unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, you should contact El Monte slip and fall lawyers with The Salamati Law Firm. Only with the help of talented Los Angeles slip and fall lawyers can you be sure your rights are being protected.

The law is on your side

Both California state law and federal law are designed to protect the public. If property owners fail to create a reasonably safe environment, we can hold them accountable. A slip and fall attorney can fight for compensation that will cover your emergency medical expenses, ongoing medical care, and physical therapy, as well as funds to cover missed paychecks, and a sum to make up for your pain and suffering. Holding property owners accountable for their negligence also dissuades others from skipping routine maintenance and makes the world a safer place for everyone.

Common hazards that cause slips and trips

Here are some of the most common causes of slips, trips, and falls in L.A. County:

  • Loose carpeting
  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Poorly lit passageways
  • Wet floors due to mopping or spills
  • Poorly kept construction areas
  • Faulty railings and handrails
  • Damaged stairs
  • Long extension cords running through a walking area

If you’ve experienced injuries from any of these hazards, you may have a case worth pursuing.
