Successful California Trip-and-Fall Case Outcome for Firm

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on September 3, 2010

A few years ago, one of our California injury lawyer's clients was seriously injured while exiting a Jacuzzi owned by the hotel at which she was staying. Upon exiting the water, she reached for a handrail for support. She and the party responsible for managing the hotel were unaware that the handrail was broken. Instead of providing the assistance she had expected, the broken handrail caused her to fall.

Unfortunately, trip-and-fall cases have become increasingly difficult to litigate in Southern California. In court, accident victims face a jury made skeptical to the veracity of their claims by the barrage of commercials and advertisements warning against scam artists. Consequently, law firms seldom take trip-and-fall cases anymore.

After thoroughly reviewing the details of her case, the California injury lawyer decided that not taking it could lead to further accidents in the future, as the chain of hotels had no program for ensuring that its pool equipment was being properly maintained and safe for guests to use. After three challenging years, he was able to obtain the compensation—three times what was initially offered—to which our client was entitled. She was able to receive the medical attention her injuries required and is on her way to an almost full recovery.

We hope that this case positively influences public sentiment toward trip-and-fall cases. The negligence of that hotel chain posed a serious threat to the well being of the public–a threat that has been mitigated now that the chain must create and implement a system for properly maintaining its pool equipment.
