    Leaking Refrigerator or Freezer Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer

    Leaking Refrigerator or Freezer Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer incident sue compensation lawsuit liability

    Refrigerators and freezers come in all shapes and sizes, and most of us have had a fridge fail on us for all sorts of reasons. A water leak from a defective freeze or fridge is aggravating when it happens in your home. But it could also be a source of serious injuries when the appliance is located in a supermarket, restaurant, hotel, or other places where refrigerators are common.

    Were you injured from a slip and fall due to water or some other substance leaking from a refrigerator or freezer? If negligence by the property owner or some other entity (product manufacturer, for example) caused you to have an accident, we can help you obtain compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Contact our law firm to discuss your rights and legal options with a Los Angeles slip and fall injury lawyer.

    Premises Liability for a Slip and Fall Accident

    First, let’s talk about the responsibility that property owners have to ensure that their property is free of hazardous conditions. This obligation is defined by the law of premise liability, which is the legal basis for most slip and fall lawsuits. Essentially, owners have to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of people that have a legitimate reason to be on their property. Thus, if someone slips and falls down on the premises due to a dangerous condition, the owner of the property can be sued by the victim.

    Most leaks from a broken refrigerator or freezer slip and fall incident are caused by the owner’s failure to maintain and repair the appliance. This may include regular inspections that are necessary for commercial-grade equipment, as well as repairs as soon as they notice any problems. Even in private residences, failure to repair a leaking fridge can easily result in someone hurting themselves from a slip and fall.

    In some cases, a manufacturer or installation company may be at fault for a leaking freezer or refrigerator. If it turns out that the product was defective before it left the manufacturer’s possession, you may have grounds for a product liability lawsuit. A third party claim against the installation company may be possible as well if they failed to follow industry standards or safety protocols that are established by the manufacturer.

    If you’ve had a fall-related accident on someone else’s property, protect yourself and your right to compensation by contacting the offices of Kenmore Law Group. Our California slip and fall attorneys are ready to fight for you and the compensation you are entitled to.

    Injuries Caused by Slip and Falls from a Defective Refrigerator

    No matter where you are, water leaks on the floor are a leading cause of fall accident injuries. That’s why property owners have to take care of leaks from pipes, toilets, drinking foundations, and of course, fridges and freezers. When water and other liquids cause slippery floors around these appliances, people can be injured from:

    • Broken bones
    • Cuts, scratches, and abrasions
    • Brain damage and other head injuries
    • Pelvic or hip fracture
    • Neck injury
    • Damage to the spinal cord
    • Soft tissue injuries
    • Joint dislocation
    • Injuries to the internal organs
    • Paralysis from permanent nerve damage
    • Scarring and other kinds of disfigurement
    • Chronic pain after your injuries have healed

    Damages You can Receive from a Slip and Fall Lawsuit

    Monetary damages refer to various types of compensation you can receive from a successful lawsuit. These payments are based on your injuries, the losses you’ve suffered, and many other elements that are specific to your case. To give you a sense of what may be available to you, here are the economic and non-economic damages that are commonly associated with slip and fall injury claims:

    • Medical expenses, including lifetime medical costs for permanent injuries
    • Lost wages and/or future lost income
    • Pain and suffering
    • Mental anguish
    • Property damage
    • Cost of hiring a lawyer
    • Punitive damages

    How Much is the Average Slip and Fall Injury Settlement?

    Based on our many years of litigating these cases, we know that there is no such thing as an average case value for a slip and fall incident. But if you look at settlements obtained by attorneys versus claimants that represent themselves, you’ll see the value of hiring a lawyer as soon as possible. Injury victims that deal with the insurance companies on their own usually end up with little more than $10,000, even in cases with fairly serious injuries. Payments recovered by our lawyers, on the other hand, are often in the neighborhood of $250,000 to $1 million and above. Ultimately, the severity of your injuries and many other factors will dictate what your lawsuit is worth. We can help you figure out an approximate value for a slip and fall claim, so contact us to schedule a free case evaluation.

    Statute of Limitations to Sue for Injuries from a Slip and Fall

    The time limit to file a lawsuit for a slip and fall is two years, which normally starts from the date you were injured. If your injuries take time to appear, meaning they could not be diagnosed right away, you have two years from the date of discovery to sue the party that’s responsible for your accident. However, you should never assume that you have a guaranteed amount of time to seek monetary damages if you were injured on someone else’s property. To ensure that you have plenty of time to file a lawsuit, call us right away and speak to a slip and fall lawyer about your case.

    How Long it Takes to Settle a Slip and Fall Accident Claim

    The length of time it will take to settle your case depends on the necessary legal actions and the complexities that are associated with your accident, as well as the injuries you’ve suffered. The majority of cases we handle are settled within 8 to 10 months when the accident occurs on a commercial property (grocery store or restaurant, for example). Claims against homeowners or residential properties may be settled faster – perhaps 4 to 6 months, but it can certainly take longer depending on the defendant’s willingness to make a fair settlement offer. Based on our ability to negotiate with the defendant’s insurance company, we may need to file a lawsuit and seek intervention from the court, which means it can take 2 or more years to recover your settlement.
