Slip & Fall Accidents

Seek Compensatory Damages with Our Bakersfield Personal Injury Lawyers

Millions of Americans are injured in serious slip and fall accidents each year. Sadly, many of these injured parties are unaware that they can pursue damages by filing a premise liability claim. Most slip and fall accidents occur because negligent property owners fail to provide a reasonably safe environment for residents, guests, and passersby.

Contact the trial-tested Bakersfield personal injury attorneys at Campbell Whitten if you or a family member has sustained injuries after a slip and fall accident. Our resourceful and tenacious legal team can investigate your case and collect evidence that proves the negligent property owner is responsible for your injuries. With our help, you can obtain compensatory damages that provide for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

We aren’t afraid to negotiate with insurance companies to secure a beneficial settlement. Call Campbell Whitten at (661) 334-3000 to schedule a consultation.

How Injuries Lead to Compensation

Slip and fall accidents often lead to severe injuries that warrant compensation. While children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to slip and fall accidents, anyone can suffer devastating injuries after a bad trip. For this reason, property owners – including business owners, apartment complex owners, and even homeowners – have a legal obligation to review their premises and take immediate steps to correct any potential hazards. The property owner also needs to put up warning signs to make sure no one gets hurt during the repair process.

Slip and fall accidents frequently occur at:


Grocery stores

Office buildings

Shopping malls


Parking Structures


Many people shake off a serious fall and go about their day. They may feel sore and bruised, but they don’t think their fall necessitates emergency medical assistance. However, a bad fall can lead to dangerous physical and cognitive injuries, and in some cases even trigger or exacerbate underlying medical issues. Only a trained medical professional can evaluate your injuries and provide effective treatment programs. Your doctor can also update your medical record, which serves as crucial evidence in your personal injury case. Plus, seeking immediate medical attention prevents the defendant’s insurance company from trying to undermine your right to damages by questioning the severity of your injury.

A plaintiff can sustain the following injuries in a slip and fall accidents:

Traumatic brain injuries

Neck or spinal cord injuries

Broken bones

Pulled or torn muscles


In more tragic circumstances, a slip and fall accident can even lead to a wrongful death case. No matter the severity of your injuries, slip and fall lawsuits can be very difficult to litigate without the guidance of an experienced legal professional. Your legal team needs to prove the following factors to secure damages on your behalf: you weren’t trespassing; you didn’t ignore visible safety warnings; you weren’t drugged or intoxicated; and you weren’t horsing around. Likewise, the property owner’s insurance company will do everything in their power to prove that the accident occurred because you weren’t exercising reasonable care for your own safety and well-being.

Fortunately, the personal injury attorneys at Campbell Whitten can meticulously investigate your case and calculate your injury-related expenses to construct a litigation strategy that aims to secure an advantageous settlement or verdict. If the defense dares to dispute your claim or right to damages, we can fight back with evidence and facts.
