Office Slip And Fall Lawsuit

Office Slip And Fall Lawsuit sue compensation lawyer attorney

It is hard to estimate how many California workers spend all or some of their workday in an office. You picture people who work in a law office, a doctor’s office, or a clerical position. But there are also countless salespersons, staff in school offices, and those who work for churches or non-profit organizations who spend some or all of their day in an office setting. And none of these people are likely to describe their jobs as hazardous. However, that is not always the case. When the staff at an office or the maintenance team is not focused on providing proper care and cleaning, there can be several hazards that can result in employees suffering a slip and fall injury.

If you or a loved one recently suffered an office slip and fall, please reach out to DTLA Law Group today to gather valuable information about your rights as a personal injury victim. Our caring and dedicated staff can be reached 24/7 to help you understand the rights of injury victims, what is required to file an office slip and fall lawsuit, and how our staff will ensure you get the most robust compensation possible for the harm you sustained.

In addition, our office will provide you with an appointment for a free consultation with a seasoned office slip and fall injury lawyer to discuss the facts of your incident. Once they have all the details, they will present you with a professional evaluation of the legal merit of your case and explain how to move forward if you have grounds for an office slip and fall lawsuit. But please act quickly to ensure you have time to carefully consider your options before making this choice, which could impact your financial future for years. Once the time limit to file your claim expires, there will be no way for you to seek compensation or justice for the injuries and losses you suffered via a lawsuit.

What Is The Time Limit To File An Office Slip And Fall Lawsuit?

Most people are unaware of the time limit to file a lawsuit until they have suffered a loss or harm from someone else’s poor choice or action. At that point, they learn that the Statute of Limitations defines the amount of time provided to a victim to file their case with the court system. They also learn that there are very few exceptions to the time allotted. While the time limit can vary based on the legal matter of the case, once the Statute of Limitations has expired, the victim has lost the right to take legal action by filing a lawsuit to seek compensation for their expenses or losses.

In cases involving an office slip and fall, the victim is given two years from the date of the injury to seek legal guidance and file a claim with the court if they so choose. Once the two years have passed, if the victim attempts to file a claim, the claim will be immediately rejected by the court. So, it is advised that all victims reach out to DTLA Law Group soon after suffering an office slip and fall injury to learn more about how long it will take to prepare their office slip and fall lawsuit and what is required to take legal action against the property owner.

Common Office Slip And Fall Hazards

Many people look at an office as a relatively safe setting and one that would never have many slip and fall safety hazards, However, if you agree with that statement, you have a false sense of security. There can be many issues in an office that might create ideal conditions to suffer a slip and fall injury, such as:

  • A broken water line, clogged drain, or malfunctioning plumbing fixture flooding the floor
  • The fire sprinkler system leaking and creating a wet, spiller floor
  • Spilled food or drinks that are not properly cleaned up
  • Small items like a pen or pencil that is dropped on the floor but not picked up
  • Litter that is dropped or falls from an overflowing trashcan that is not properly disposed of
  • Loose or damaged flooring surfaces
  • Damaged or broken steps or handrails at steps
  • Unmarked or poorly marked transitions from one flooring surface to another or at steps or ramps
  • Fluid leaking from cleaning supply containers
  • Floor mats that are saturated and oozing water
  • Electrical cords left in walkways
  • Water or wet leaves tracked into the office from outside
  • Floors that are still damp after being mopped but display no caution or warning signs to alter staff of the possible slip and fall hazard
Common Office Slip And Fall Injuries

In a perfect world, there would never be a severe injury due to an office slip and fall. But then again, if the world were perfect, there would be no slip and fall hazards to cause any injuries. However, we live in a world that is often far from perfect, so you need to be careful even when making a short trek to the coffee machine in the office kitchen to avoid these common slip-and-fall injuries:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Dislocated joints
  • Soft tissue injuries, lacerations, and puncture wounds
  • Damage to the back, neck, or spinal cord
  • Injuries to internal organs or internal bleeding
  • Facial damage to the skin, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, or teeth
  • Head injuries that could include a skull fracture, cranial hematoma, concussion, or traumatic brain injury

If you suffer a slip and fall at the office, seek immediate medical care and a full evaluation for any injuries you sustained. Getting a fast diagnosis and treatment is the best way to achieve a complete recovery. Then, contact DTLA Law Group to learn more about how an office slip and fall lawsuit could solve the financial crisis caused by your injuries.

Who Is To Blame For Your Office Slip And Fall?

Duty of care and the obligations it explains will likely determine who is to blame for the injuries suffered during your office slip and fall. Duty of care is part of premises liability law created to protect the general public when legally at a public or private property. The guidelines define the obligation of the property owner and their staff to maintain the space in a safe and hazard-free manner.

The level of care required in most spaces is defined as what the average prudent person would provide in a similar situation. So, all the staff needs to do is think about how they would handle issues at home to know what is required at work. For example, you would undoubtedly mop water spilled on the floor to prevent anyone from falling. That is what is required of an office or maintenance staff in an office or any other property. Likewise, if there is damage to a water line that is flooding the floor but cannot be immediately repaired, you would limit access to the space or provide warning signs to alert others of the increased slip and fall risk. These are also the actions required by those caring for an office space.

If the staff of any facility fails to meet the minimum level of care required under duty of care, they are said to be negligent in their duty of care. In addition, if that negligence is later found to have caused or contributed to someone suffering an office slip and fall injury, the property owner or staff could be liable for the victim’s losses and expenses due to their injuries. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with DTLA Law Group today to learn more about how duty of care could impact your ability to seek compensation for your office slip and fall injuries.
