Agoura Hills Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys

Slip and fall accidents are incredibly common. Whether you slipped on a spill at a grocery store, fell down the stairs in an apartment building because of a broken railing or step, or tripped over uncovered cables in an office building, if you were hurt on property owned or operated by someone else, you could be entitled to compensation. Slips, trips, and falls are dangerous, leading to thousands of emergency room visits across the country every year. If you slipped and fell because of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation for the harm you have suffered.

The dedicated slip & fall injury attorneys at the Halpern Law Firm have been representing injured accident victims throughout Southern California for over 40 years. We work hard to ensure you and your loved ones get fully compensated for the damage you have endured, and we do not accept a dime until we recover for you.

Slip & Fall Accidents are Common and Dangerous

Although they may not appear as dangerous as car accidents or other catastrophic incidents, slips, trips, and falls can be just as harmful, and just as fatal. According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI):

  • Falls account for 11% of job-related fatalities for men across the country
  • Falls account for over eight million hospital emergency room visits every year, making up the leading single cause of emergency room incidents (over 21 percent)
  • Slips and falls alone account for over a million emergency room visits each year
  • Slips and falls are the leading cause of missed workdays
  • Falls are the second leading cause of injury-related death for elderly Americans aged 65-84, and are the leading cause of injury death for Americans aged 85 and over
  • In 2005 alone, more than 15,000 people over the age of 65 died as a result of a fall

Slips and falls can be incredibly dangerous, especially for elderly individuals. If you or someone you love were harmed in a slip and fall accident, you have every right to take that incident seriously. You and your family deserve justice and compensation for the harm you have suffered. A passionate slip & fall accident lawyer at the Halpern Law Firm can help ensure you get what you are owed.
