The Spring Arcade Building is one of the most recognizable historic structures in Downtown Los Angeles. Also known as the Broadway Arcade, the building was originally used as a schoolhouse when it first opened in 1924. Today, it’s seen as a beautiful example of Spanish Baroque and Beaux Arts architecture. The size and scale of the building has allowed it to be transformed into a combination of luxury condos, retail stores, and restaurants. As a result, it’s an extremely popular tourist destination, as well as a place to relax and hang out for those that live and work in Downtown LA.
A lesser-known aspect of the Spring Arcade is the number of accidents that occur on the premises, especially slip and falls that could have been prevented if building owners and management took the proper precautions. If you or someone you know was injured from a slip and fall at the Spring Arcade Building, our lawyer would like to advise you of your rights and legal options. If your accident can be traced to an act of negligence by the property owner or their employees, you may have grounds to sue the Spring Arcade for monetary compensation.

Slip and Fall Lawsuit Case Values
Case values for slip and fall lawsuits are based on many circumstances, including the location of the accident, injuries sustained by the victim, and the act of negligence that caused the incident. In general, fall accidents at commercial properties generate higher settlements than those on private properties (people’s homes, for example). This is particularly true with historic, luxury buildings like Spring Arcade, where slip and fall and trip and falls are very common.
Based on slip and fall lawsuits we’ve settled on behalf of other clients, we would say these cases are worth around $250,000 to $2,500,000. Some cases will, of course, fall below this range as they involve less serious injuries. On the other hand, some cases are worth $5 million or more due to severe health complications, like brain damage and loss of function.
How Long Does it take to Settle a Slip and Fall Case?
Slip and fall cases against commercial properties typically take around 6 to 10 months to settle if the insurance company is willing to negotiate with us in good faith. Sometimes, cases will settle faster if the insurer makes an offer that’s fair based on the client’s level of harm and suffering. But these timelines tend to get longer for more serious injury cases, perhaps as long as 12 to 18 months. If a settlement cannot be achieved, going to trial is a possibility, though most cases (over 90%) do not get to this point. However, if a trial does become necessary, the timeline to settle a slip and fall lawsuit against the Spring Arcade Building can take several years.
Statute of Limitations – Deadline to File a Lawsuit
Slip and fall accident claims must be filed within 2 years from the accident date in California. There are situations where you may be granted an extension by the court, but these are exceptionally rare cases. As a result, it’s more than likely that you’ll lose the chance to sue the owners of Spring Arcade Building if you miss the 2-year deadline.
