Vehicle Service Slip And Fall Attorney


Vehicle Service Slip And Fall Attorney sue liability lawyer compensation incident

As a vehicle owner, you are sure to frequent a service department at your local car dealership, an independent auto service facility, or a mechanic from time to time for anything from routine maintenance to diagnostic and repair services. In most cases, your car is taken to an automotive bay, where the staff can locate the issue, make repairs, or complete the required maintenance. During that time, you are in a waiting area with a place to sit and possibly even refreshments, but you are not often permitted to enter the vehicle service area or workspace. However, once the work is done or the issue has been located, you are usually invited into the work area to see the problem. And that is when many vehicle service slip and fall injuries occur.

Sadly, most mechanics or staff at vehicle service facilities devote little time to cleaning and caring for the space where vehicles are serviced. So, when you are escorted back to your car, it can be treacherous. If you or a loved one recently suffered a slip and fall accident injury at a vehicle service center, please know that the team at DTLA Law Group is here to help you navigate this challenging experience.

When you contact our law office, a person is always ready to answer your questions and provide reliable legal information and guidance.

But please act quickly to ensure that you have time to file your claim before the Statute of Limitations for your case expires.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations?

The Statute of Limitations defines how long a victim has to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for losses or harm caused by someone else’s actions. There is a time limit for all lawsuits. However, the specific amount of time allotted can vary based on the legal material in the case. However, what remains constant across all lawsuits is that once the time limit to file the claim with the court has passed, the victim permanently loses the ability to seek justice via a lawsuit. Also, there are very minimal exceptions to this rule, so it is vital that all victims understand the time limit and work within its boundaries.

Cases involving a fall at a vehicle service facility have a time limit of two years from the date of the incident for the case to be filed with the court. If you miss this date and try to file a claim after the Statute of Limitations has expired, the court will immediately reject your case. Please make time today to contact DTLA Law Group to discuss the Statute of Limitations on your lawsuit with a vehicle service slip and fall attorney to ensure there is time to properly prepare and file your lawsuit with the court.

Common Slip And Fall Hazards In Vehicle Service Facilities

When you carefully explore the conditions in most vehicle service establishments, you could be shocked that there are not more slip and fall injuries reported in these locations each year. The clutter and slippery conditions are two of the primary reasons that customers are rarely permitted to enter the area. So, when you are invited out to take a look at the issue with your vehicle, be sure to watch for these common safety hazards:

  • Oil that was spilled on the floor
  • Tools or small parts that were left on the floor
  • Water or other fluids that were spilled or leaked onto the floor
  • Air hoses that are lying on the floor
  • Litter or debris that is left on the floor or fell from an overly full trash can
  • Water leaking from hoses or other damaged plumbing fixtures
  • Poorly or unmarked transitions from one flooring surface to another
Vehicle Service Center Slip And Fall Injuries

Sadly, there are rarely any minor injuries sustained due to a slip and fall incident at a vehicle service center. The sharp edges and items in these areas, along with the hard surfaces, often result in severe or even life-threatening harm to victims that could include:

  • Damage to the neck, back, or spinal cord
  • Injuries to internal organs or internal bleeding
  • Fractured, broken, or shattered bones
  • Dislocated joints or damage to the connective tissue of a joint
  • Puncture wounds or severe lacerations
  • Facial damage to the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, or teeth
  • Head injuries ranging from a concussion or skull fracture to traumatic brain injuries

If you or a loved one has suffered a vehicle service slip and fall injury accident, it is vital for you to seek medical care immediately. Many injuries can be masked by adrenaline and will be more harmful without immediate medical care. Should your medical professional discover any injuries, be sure to request copies of all the documentation of the harm, as this can be very useful should you decide to file a vehicle service center slip and fall injury lawsuit.

Once you have gotten the medical care you need, please reach out to DTLA Law Group at your earliest convenience. Our team is here to help you understand your rights as an personal injury victim and how to secure the compensation that is owed to you if staff negligence is involved in the harm you sustained.

Understanding Duty Of Care

Duty of care is part of premises liability law and was created to ensure the safety of the general public when they are at a property owned by someone else. It is also vital to understand that duty of care applies to all public and private properties to protect anyone who is legally visiting the location.

The level of care required to ensure guest safety is defined as what the average prudent person would provide. So, it is easy for property owners and their staff to understand what is expected to ensure everyone’s safety. For example, if you see a floor mat that is damaged, you would remove it and replace it with a new mat to prevent anyone from tripping and falling. Likewise, if there is water on the floor, you would mop it up to eliminate the slip and fall safety hazard. These are simple tasks that the average person would undertake to eliminate safety hazards and what is expected of the staff of a vehicle service center.

If the staff fails to meet this level of care, they are said to be negligent in their duty of care. Furthermore, if that negligence is later found to be the cause of or has contributed to someone suffering a slip and fall injury, the facility owner can be found liable for the victim’s losses and expenses due to the incident. Please reach out to DTLA Law Group to speak with a skilled vehicle service slip and fall attorney to determine if your injuries were caused by staff negligence and if you want to sue the facility.

How Much Is A Vehicle Service Slip And Fall Injury Lawsuit Worth?

Many personal injury victims are under the assumption that there are pre-determined values assigned to specific injuries or accidents. However, that is not the case. Instead, each lawsuit value is independently determined by calculating the actual losses and expenses incurred by the victim due to the incident.

You will work with the dedicated and caring team at DTLA Law Group to ensure that you are fully and fairly compensated for all the costs you face because of your injuries and any financial losses you have suffered. The items that are typically included in the compensation value of a slip and fall injury lawsuit are:

  • All current and estimated future medical expenses related to the injuries suffered at the vehicle service facility, including mental healthcare to address trauma, medications needed, and essential medical devices or equipment
  • The cost of any personal property that was damaged or destroyed in the incident
  • Your lost income if you are unable to work until fully recovered from your injuries or if you must miss work to attend medical appointments related to the injuries suffered at the vehicle service center
  • All costs associated with preparing, filing, and litigating your vehicle service slip and fall injury lawsuit
