If you slipped and fell at a department store, a parking lot, an apartment complex or somewhere else, you may be entitled to compensation. While an insurance company or property owner may try to argue you were “clumsy” or not watching where you were going, the reality is that under California law, slip and fall accidents are serious matters that can usually be traced back to a property owner’s negligence. If you or a loved one slipped and fell on someone else’s property and sustained a serious injury, you deserve to get money to pay for your losses.
At The Law Offices of Brian Brandt, we know that slip and falls are common personal injury claims. But Brian also knows there’s nothing common about your circumstances. No two cases are the same. That’s why he’s eager to meet with you and discuss the details of your case. We want to learn more so we can help you get your life back on track.
A native of Southern California, Brian has a strong track record of success. Since he began practicing law, he has helped injury victims obtain hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements throughout the state.

How can Brian help me?
The Law Offices of Brian Brandt will investigate your claim. First, we will need to prove the property owner was negligent. We ask questions such as:
- Was the property’s condition dangerous?
- Did the owner know (or should he or she have known) about this hazardous condition?
- Did the owner have a reasonable time to fix the property’s condition?
Once we’ve examined the circumstances and helped you build a case, we’ll pursue compensation from the responsible party’s insurance company. If you’re worried about filing a claim because the property owner is a friend or business associate, bear in mind that the case will largely consist of Brian dealing directly with the insurance. Your relationship doesn’t have to be affected.
Slip and fall accidents happen for many reasons at shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, parking lots and other public places. Some of the most common reasons why these accidents occur involve water or other liquids accidentally left on the floor. Other times, unmarked hazards can cause serious slip, trip and fall accidents.
Property owners may deny any wrongdoing. Sometimes, they plead ignorance and claim they didn’t know anything about a wet or hazardous condition that caused you to get hurt. Other times, they might even go so far as to blame you. Whatever excuse the property owner uses, we’re prepared to fight for your rights and make sure your accident receives the attention it rightfully deserves. We build a solid case by investigating and proving the owner’s negligence.
It’s one option. Sometimes, filing a slip and fall accident lawsuit is necessary. But other legal options also exist. These cases are commonly settled out of court. Contact our law firm as soon as possible and schedule an appointment with Brian. Best of all, you only pay fees if we win your case. It’s that simple.
