Every year in San Diego, hundreds of people are injured in slip and fall accidents due to unsafe and poorly maintained property or sidewalks. Sadly, falls account for over 8 million hospital emergency room visits, representing the leading cause of visits (21.3%). And the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that floors and flooring materials contribute directly to more than 2 million fall injuries each year.
These unfortunate accidents are often avoidable. Any area open to customers, vendors, guests, and children must be maintained appropriately so that everyone can be safe from injuries due to an accident.
San Diego slip and fall accidents involving serious personal injury or wrongful death often entail dealing with an insurance agency – which can be challenging. For this reason, it is important to hire an experienced slip and fall accident attorney in the aftermath of an accident. Claims can be complicated, and insurers, with their teams of accident personnel and legal staff, generally do everything possible to limit adequate payout. For an experienced slip and fall accident lawyer, contact our firm today.

What is a “Slip and Fall”?
A type of personal injury, a slip and fall is a premises liability claim. When someone slips and falls on public or private property or a residence, they are subject to premises liability laws, which govern the handling and care of facilities open to the public. Property owners and landowners in California have a duty of care to maintain and keep their properties, facilities, and buildings reasonably safe. When they fail to uphold that duty of care and someone is hurt, they may be faced with liability and a lawsuit that awards damages to the injured party.
How Much Do Slip and Fall Lawyers Cost?
At Queen Yasmine Injury Law, we do not charge our slip and fall clients anything unless we win in court or through a settlement. This type of fee structure is called a contingency fee structure. In the rare case we do not win, you will not be charged. Our slip and fall attorneys are experienced and ready to take your call. Contact us today.

Cracks or breaks in a sidewalk
Loose, torn, or frayed carpeting
Potholes in parking lots or on sidewalks
Wet or poorly maintained floors

Lacerations and bruises
Skull fractures and brain injuries
Neck and spine injuries

What to Do If You’ve Been Injured Due to Unsafe Premises
Nobody anticipates them, but accidents happen, and oftentimes there are injuries because of those accidents. Despite the circumstances, it’s essential to know what to do so you can heal and be adequately compensated. Here are a few things to consider following your injury:
Seek Medical Care. No matter how minor your injuries seem, seeking medical care is essential. A doctor can document your injuries and even catch previously undetected issues.
Take Pictures of What Caused the Injury. Injuries usually happen because of railing breaks, slippery floors that weren’t labeled, or negligent security. No matter what the cause of your injuries is, make sure to capture the scene the best you can before leaving. The images of the scene will be necessary for your case.
Get Names and Insurance Information. Often, the facility or building where you fell will have premises liability insurance. Contact a manager or owner and get their information. Remember- do not talk with any insurance adjusters without first talking to an attorney. Insurers are there to protect themselves and pay the least amount possible.
