Spanish Speaking Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers to File Lawsuit in San Diego

Slip, trips, and falls are the most common cause of injuries. Slip, trip, and fall accidents are also one of the most common reasons for which victims file lawsuits. Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and to anybody. People with access to legal information and legal assistance might be familiar with their rights after a slip and fall accident. However, many people without the same access are not aware of their rights and do not pursue legal action after their accident.

Who are these people with little to no access to legal information and assistance? Unfortunately, the Spanish speaking community in San Diego is those who cannot access legal information when they need it the most. The Spanish speaking community meets a language barrier whenever it seeks legal guidance since most law firms are English-only.

San Diego is home to 1.39 million people. Of these 1.39 million people, more than 40% are speakers of a language other than English. In fact, 21% of the population is native Spanish speakers. This statistic is not alarming considering that more than 425,000 Hispanics live in San Diego. These Spanish speakers decide not to pursue legal action because they cannot find an attorney who speaks Spanish.

Normandie Law Firm is a Spanish law firm that understands that the Spanish speaking community needs legal assistance from someone who can speak Spanish. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, a San Diego attorney speaking Spanish will be able to help you start a lawsuit against the party liable for your accident and your injuries. Our Spanish speaking slip and fall lawyers in San Diego have the experience necessary to handle your case. Normandie Law Firm will provide you with a trip and fall lawyer that speaks Spanish to give you all the information relevant to your case.

The following is general information and is not meant to substitute a consultation with a Spanish speaking attorney. An attorney will be able to give you detailed information directly related to your case.

Who is Liable for Slip and Fall Accidents?
The first thing that many victims of slip and fall accidents do is blame themselves. Many victims believe they were clumsy or careless and that no one else could have possibly caused the accident. That is far from the truth. Property owners, store owners, managers, and employees are all responsible for ensuring the property—whether it is a home, a sidewalk, a grocery store, a department store, or a workplace—is hazard-free. These people have the responsibility to maintain the property and address and remove any potentially dangerous situations. In other words, property owners, store owners, managers, and employees have a duty of care to keep guests safe at all times.

If you were in a grocery store and you slip on some water leaking out of a cooler, you can sue the store. Managers and employees in the store must always do everything possible to ensure that the store is clean, free of leaks and spills and free of obstructions. If managers and employees fail to address a risk, they might be found liable for a victim’s injuries. Likewise, if you tripped and fell on a sidewalk in a residential area, you can sue the owner of the home. Homeowners are responsible for keeping up with the maintenance of sidewalks on their property. If the homeowner does not address the risk created by the damaged sidewalk, he or she might be found liable.

In some cases, it is possible that there was no hazards present and the victim simply tripped and fell. If the victim is responsible for his or her accident and injuries, he or she cannot file a lawsuit against another party. For more information about liability in slip and fall accidents contact a San Diego slip and fall attorney that speaks Spanish.

Common Injuries
Slip and fall injuries come in many different forms. The injuries you sustain and the severity of these injuries will depend on the type and force of the fall. Below is a list of the injuries that a victim of a trip and fall accident might acquire:

  • Head and traumatic brain injuries
  • Hip fractures
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Sprains and fractures
  • Scrapes and bruises

Based on the list above, you can see that some injuries are mild while others can be life-threatening.  Scrapes, bruises, sprains, and fractures—for example—will require minimal medical attention and will allow victims to lead the same life as before the incident. On the other hand, shoulder injuries, neck injuries, and back injuries can cause long-term pain and might require surgical procedures to reverse or mend some of the injuries. Head, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries are by far the most serious of all the injuries. Head injuries are commonly known as concussions. Concussions might require minimal medical attention; however, if no medical care is given, the concussion can worsen and become a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injuries can cause permanent brain damage. Spinal cord injuries can affect a victim’s mobility. Spinal cord injuries are permanent—attempt to reverse injuries can cause even more damage to the spinal cord. Depending on the location of the injury, spinal cord injuries can cause paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Without a doubt, most of the injuries discussed can lead to expensive medical bills. Medical bills can quickly become overwhelming when you are injured, and your ability to work to pay these medical bills has dwindled. If you file a lawsuit for your injuries, you might be eligible to receive compensation for all of the medical expenses associated with your injuries. For more information of the compensation that you might be eligible to receive based on the injuries that you sustained during the slip and fall accident, contact a San Diego slip and fall attorney that speaks Spanish as soon as possible.
