Los Angeles County is home to scores of office complexes, skyscrapers, and large commercial buildings, including the Wilshire Grand Center, the Aon Center, US Bank Tower, and the Ronald Reagan State Building, among others. While most owners, management companies, and landlords of office buildings make reasonable efforts to keep their premises and parking lots safe for employees and invited guests, there are some that breach this important duty of care.
Careless maintenance and gross negligence are huge safety issues given the high traffic rate in commercial and office buildings, where falls are a principal cause of disabling injury.
Some of the most common culprits for office building falls include:
Occupied by hundreds of workers and the site of heavy pedestrian traffic, large office buildings are the site for many fall-related accidents. The question in these premises liability claims usually boils down to whether the property owner or super was aware of a dangerous condition, failed to conduct routine maintenance inspections and repairs, or failed to block off or give notice about a known hazard. Unfortunately, the burden of proving negligence in slip and fall injury claims is left to the victim, underscoring the need for a skilled and results-driven personal injury lawyer. The Salamati Law Firm is here for you and your family when you need a tenacious legal advocate to protect your interests and identify the slip and fall hazards in the office that caused your injuries.
Attorney Sean Salamati has extensive experience carrying out effective strategies that produce favorable settlements in employee slip and fall claims and other cases involving office buildings. While physical injuries, medical bills, and lost wages are easy to demonstrate, how do you pinpoint liable parties?
Personal injury claims involving a slip and fall on commercial property and/or in an office building may have a number of potential defendants such as:
The Salamati Firm will investigate the circumstances and events that led to your slip and fall injury, obtaining surveillance camera footage, eyewitness testimony, and building maintenance records to establish negligent parties. Our clients come from all over the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area and include employees, customers, and invited clients of office buildings and commercial establishments.
Properties that are open to the public for commercial purposes owe visitors the highest standard of care. When they fail to meet this obligation and injury or death results, victims have a right to seek fair compensation.
There are several variables that will affect the value of your office building slip and fall claim. While every case is different, some key factors are:
You can still seek damages even if you were partly to blame for your injuries. We have successfully negotiated slip and fall insurance settlements where plaintiffs were partially responsible for slip and fall accidents. California is a pure comparative negligence state, so even if you were 99 percent at fault for your accident, you can still recover financial compensation for your injuries. The total amount of damages you incurred will be reduced in proportion to your share of the fault for the accident. For example, if you suffered $2 Million in damages from a slip and fall in the parking lot of an office building and it is determined that you were 90 percent at fault, you would be awarded 10 percent of $2 Million, which is $200,000. In other words, even if you were mostly responsible for your accident, it can still pay to file a claim.
If you were injured in a fall-related accident in an office building, there are steps you can take to protect your rights.
