Slips, trips and falls are generalized as ‘premises liabilities’. Businesses and places of employment are held to high standards of OSHA safety regarding safe places to walk and perform regular job duties. Negligence not only injures workers and customers, it strikes fear into other employees while spreading into communities who transact with negligent businesses.
A Camarillo slip and fall accident attorney will not only take cases to recover financial benefits for clients, they’ll compel business executives to change policies regarding signage and, in worse case scenarios, secure court orders to shut down operations until full compliance is achieved.
Obstructions caused by foreign substances. Hazardous property environments. These and many other premise liabilities are serious infractions that The Law Offices of J. Jeffrey Herman fights diligently to resolve so employees and customers feel safe again, and businesses can be held accountable for negating their duties.
Premises Liability Cases – No Win, No Fee
Cases, where injuries were sustained in unhealthy conditions, are litigated on contingency, meaning we’re able to prepare, file and fight premises liability cases with ‘fee shifting’ provisions. When safety laws are broken, we’re able to not only recover benefits for clients, but recover attorney fees that ‘shift’ in liability to the offending party. This means nothing comes out of your pocket because we’ll get paid later.
The Bureau of Labor Services reported in manufacturing alone in 2016, 19 percent (22,040) of all reported DAFW (Days Away from Work) cases were the result of slips, trips or falls. This report goes on to state that the average time away from work in these cases was nine (9) days.
These statistics don’t account for retail, food service or other injuries where obstructed areas can cause serious injury or death.
