A man in another state recently claimed that a business he was visiting caused him to be injured on its property. The man therefore decided to file a premises liability claim against the company. Those who suffer injuries in slip-and-fall accidents on business properties in California can likewise seek to hold these businesses accountable for the injuries if their negligence caused them.
In the recent out-of-state case, the man claimed that he was eating with his loved ones at a Hilton hotel's restaurant in July of 2016. He then got up to go to the bathroom. However, when he went into the bathroom, he reportedly slipped and ended up striking the floor.
According to the lawsuit, water had flooded the bathroom floor. The man asserted that the defendant was negligent by allowing the bathroom to become wet and slippery. He is seeking an unspecified amount in damages as well as a jury trial.
Individuals who suffer injuries in slip-and-fall accidents have the right to seek the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained in these types of accidents. An understanding of what facts they need to prove is most likely critical for prevailing in such civil court cases. A successfully litigated case may result in monetary damages that might help with covering medical bills and even the loss of wages if the slip-and-fall injuries caused a person to have to miss work for a time. Financial damages may also help with addressing pain and suffering as well as emotional distress resulting from these types of accidents in California.
