Dedicated Stockton Lawyer Handles Slip and Fall Actions
Central Valley injury attorney has a proven record of success
As a great location to live and work and a popular tourist destination, the Central Valley attracts all types of people to this part of California. Amid this activity, one instance of negligence can trigger a serious slip and fall injury. At the Law Offices of Mark A. Thiel in Stockton, we have secured more than $100 million in payments for victims in premises liability cases and other personal injury matters. Our firm works tirelessly on behalf of Central Valley clients who fell because a property owner violated their duty to keep their location safe. We will unearth the truth about property owners who have caused damage because they violated their duty of care.
Accomplished firm handles a full range of premises liability cases
Attorney Mark Thiel’s legal experience and familiarity with the Central Valley make him exceptionally qualified to handle the types of slip and fall claims that occur at locations such as:
- Construction sites — Heavy equipment and multiple contractors present a danger to people on or near construction sites. If you’ve been injured during building or repairs, our firm advises you on how to take action against the faulty party.
- Farms and wineries — The Central Valley offers some of the world’s finest farmland and in addition to providing crops, many farms and wineries have become destinations for visitors. This mix of activity presents a risk when owners or workers fail to take proper care to protect people who are unfamiliar with the surroundings.
- Stores and restaurants — A spill on a restaurant floor or a box left on a supermarket floor might trigger a harsh fall. After this occurs, we fight on behalf of injured patrons.
- Transportation hubs — Whether you’re in an airport or looking to catch a bus or train, people in busy transportation centers are often focused on other things besides safety. When someone is injured at a train station, an airport, or any other transportation terminal, our firm finds out who is responsible.
We know the defenses and tactics that property owners and their insurers use, so our firm can anticipate defendants’ arguments in the courtroom and at the negotiation table.
Experienced California litigator holds negligent property owners accountable
Our firm offers a free initial consultation so that slip and fall victims can obtain immediate assistance with their potential claim. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you can still collect damages under California’s pure comparative negligence standard. This rule states that when fault is apportioned, a victim’s recovery is reduced by an equal percentage. In other words, if someone suffers $100,000 in damages due to a fall on an unsafe floor but is held to be 20 percent responsible because their shoes were untied, the ultimate recovery would be $80,000.
