the Compensation and Justice You Deserve
Slip and Fall Accidents
According to the National Safety Council, slips, trips, and falls accounted for about 33 percent of nonfatal preventable injuries and 21 percent of unintentional injury deaths in the United States in 2020.
These accidents are often caused by the negligent behavior of businesses, government entities, and other parties. When such a situation occurs, California law gives injured individuals the right to file a lawsuit and pursue compensation.

The amount of compensation Newport Beach residents receive after suffering injuries in slip and fall accidents varies significantly from one case to the next. People who suffer injuries that leave them permanently disabled or disfigured tend to receive the most substantial awards.
When calculating compensation, judges typically consider factors such as:
- The cost of the plaintiff’s medical treatment
- The plaintiff’s ongoing care costs
- The amount of time the plaintiff missed from work
- The affect the plaintiff’s injury will have on their earning capacity
- The mental anguish the plaintiff endured, and
- The impact the plaintiff’s injury will have on their overall quality of life
In some cases, the judge will also consider whether the defendant acted maliciously. If they did, the court may award punitive damages.
