Discovery is ongoing for a trip and fall claim, actually in this case a slip and fall claim, which occurred at one of the Jack in the Box locations in Los Banos, California. The injured party had been at the counter ordering food when he went around the corner towards the restrooms and slipped on a puddle of water. While signs had been placed on the floor, they were visible only for those entering the premises. The claimant now requires surgery.
If you have been involved in a trip and fall or slip and fall accident in California, you should be aware that not all claims have validity. The general rule is that the store or restaurant will not be held liable unless it created the hazard itself and failed to adequately warn its customers, or if the condition was known to exist or should have been known to exist for a sufficient length of time to remedy the condition. Please feel free to call us if you think you may have a claim. Further, we all suffer small bangs and bruises. Only serious injuries warrant a full investigation. Often surveillance videos or store accident reports can be very helpful in establishing a claim. Please call for a free consult.
