Established Slip and Fall Attorneys Represent Injury Victims
Committed law firm helps those hurt while on the property of others
Both California and US Virgin Islands law imposes upon property owners and businesses certain obligations to protect guests from unsafe conditions on their premises. If a business or individual fails to exercise the legally required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At The Law Offices of Friedberg & Bunge, our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to help clients seek full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress and pain and suffering. We represent individuals throughout California and the US Virgin Islands.
WE evaluate the strength of your injury claim
In order for a property owner to be found responsible for your accident, evidence must be shown to prove that you were legally on the property and that a dangerous condition on the premises caused your injury. In addition, generally at least one of the following must be true:
- The property owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
Depending on state law, a property owner or manager may owe a different standard of care to different classes of visitors, such as business visitors or social guests. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Friedberg & Bunge help you understand your chances of recovery based on the specific facts of your case.
Knowledgeable attorneys build sturdy premises liability cases
Strong cases are founded on strong evidence. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Friedberg & Bunge will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your slip and fall incident and may visit the premises where the accident occurred. There, we may gather crucial evidence, photograph the scene and interview witnesses. We may also consult with knowledgeable and respected expert witnesses, such as physicians and chiropractors. With their assistance, we can pursue the best settlement available. If your case goes to court, these witnesses are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jurors can understand the cause of the accident and the extent of your injuries.
By immediately consulting an attorney after your accident, you can help ensure that your best interests are considered from the start. With significant delay, however, you could forfeit your right to file a claim by missing the deadline set by relevant state law. In California, the deadline for filing a claim against a governmental entity is 180 days. In the US Virgin Islands, the deadline for filing a claim against a governmental entity is only 90 days from the date of the incident. It is therefore important that you immediately consult with an attorney after your incident.
