Southern California Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer
Even the most routine slip and fall accident can leave one with head injuries, serious fractures, contusions or other injuries. In California, a slip and fall victim can bring a claim for damages if the fall was due to a dangerous condition that the property owner failed to correct.
Amicus Legal Group helps victims throughout Southern California get the most compensation for injuries, pain and suffering and lost income. In every case, we work hard to achieve the maximum compensation for clients.
Slip and fall accidents occur when an individual slips, trips, or falls and sustains an injury due to a hazardous or unsafe property condition. Most slip and fall accidents occur as the result of such dangerous conditions as:
- Broken handrails
- Broken stairs
- Poor lighting
- Slippery or wet floors
- Torn carpets
- Obstructed walkways
- Exposed holes or ditches
- Falling objects
- Cracked or uneven pavement
- Failure to post warning signs
Accident Victim Tips
Watch what you post online. Insurance companies will try and discredit any injuries claimed in the case, and may request your social media usernames as large amounts of information are posted online. Think twice about posting that picture of you on the dance floor weeks after the wedding.
Become an excellent record keeper. You should keep records and notes about even the smallest details which are related to the auto accident and your injuries. Get a copy of the police and accident reports for your records as well. Keep track of all medical appointments, expenses, and mileage so that this information is available if a lawsuit is filed.
Take photos or video of all visible injuries that you may have. This includes any bruising, cuts, scrapes, stitches, or other visible evidence of the injuries that you sustained. Additionally, take photos or video footage should of the car and the accident scene to help illustrate the circumstances of the accident.
Build a Successful Case
You can help your attorney build a successful case for you. Write down all relevant facts as you remember them and maintain a journal regarding your treatment and recovery. Excellent record keeping will make it easier for a claim to be filed, settled, or litigated, if necessary.
Keep a running list of all medical visits, diagnoses, medications and other expenses, including travel, incurred as a result of the accident to help substantiate your out of pocket losses attributable to the accident.

John-Paul is well known in our community as a smart and effective criminal defense lawyer who is sensitive to his clients’ situations and responsive to their needs. I refer my clients to him with confidence when they need help with the criminal justice system.
John-Paul is a superb attorney. He was my mentor when I was in law school, and now as an attorney I still go to him for advice on complex cases. When my brother required representation I referred him to John-Paul. That is how highly I think of JP as an attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs representation.
Attorney John Paul-Serrao helped us to win our case against the insurance company after we were involved in a traffic accident where our car was rear ended, we tried to handle it ourselves with the insurance company and they did not want to cooperate with us, so we hired Mr. Serrao and he was able to get us a settlement above with the insurance company was willing to pay. I would highly recommend him.
Occasionally you meet another attorney who is so impressive both personally and professionally that you want to be affiliated with them in any way you can both personally and professionally. That is how I feel about John-Paul. I not only consider him one of the finest attorneys I know, but I now proudly call him my friend. He is among the very best.
John-Paul is an extremely effective criminal defense attorney. The one thing that makes him stand out from other defense attorneys is that he talks to his clients to learn the circumstances surrounding their incident and then he makes a forceful and articulate argument in defense of his clients. I recommend my clients to John-Paul when they are in need of a criminal defense attorney because I know he will stand up for them.
Mr. Serrao worked on my DUI charge earlier this year and all I can say is WOW! Not only did he keep me updated with the case but his knowledge of the process helped calm my nerves, which was very important to me. He showed care for me as a client and I can’t thank him enough. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a quality criminal defense attorney.
I had the pleasure of working a very large scale drug case with Mr. Serrao, representing co-defendants. Mr. Serrao was a pleasure to work with. Highly skilled and very aggressive in his advocacy on his client’s behalf. I highly recommend Mr. Serrao for anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.
John-Paul took my civil case when no one else would because other lawyers didn’t have confidence in my daughter who has special needs to testify, if needed. John-Paul won her case against the school district without a jury because he cared about my child, believed she was honest and deserved justice. He still doesn’t mind taking my calls whenever I have a question regarding her case.
