No one can put a price on the loss of function by a loved one suffering from damage to their brain or spinal cord.

According to information posted on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, it is estimated that anywhere between 12,000 and 20,000 people suffer spinal cord injuries on an annual basis; 46% of those injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents. Falls were deemed to be the second main cause of spinal cord injuries, accounting for approximately 22% of all spinal cord injuries.

Countless lives are significantly affected and altered as a result of these permanent and often debilitating injuries. There are different levels of traumatic brain injuries. While some are considered mild, causing a brief change in mental status or consciousness, others are more severe, often causing an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury.

Slip and Fall

If you are injured on someone else’s property, such as in a slip and fall accident, Martinez Law can help get you the recovery you are entitled.

The term slip and fall accident is used in personal injury law to describe a type of case where a person slips, stumbles, or falls on another’s property. A slip and fall claim falls under a broad category of premises liability where a property owner may be held financially responsible for injuries occurring on his or her property.

Premises liability law is based on the idea that property owners or renters are obligated to ensure that the premises are safe for visitors and guests. When the owner or renter breaches this obligation, he or she can be held liable for all damages that occur as a direct result of the injury.

In most slip and fall cases, the injured person must prove that the fall was caused by a dangerous condition that was known, or should have been known, by the property owner. A dangerous condition is an unanticipated or hidden condition that presents an unreasonable risk to people on the property. Understand that the obligation of property owners to make their premises safe depends on the purpose of the visit or the reason you, the plaintiff, has been invited onto the property.

Fighting for compensation after an injury on someone else’s property will not be easy if you lack the knowledge and experience of a premise liability attorney. Martinez Law your premises liability lawyer can help you to prove negligence in these kinds of cases.

Wrongful Death

A Wrongful Death occurs when the actions of a person, persons or company are determined to be negligent, and they cause or are determined to be the legal cause of an injury which leads to a death that otherwise was avoidable.

There is no amount of money that can replace the loss of a family member; however, financial compensation is the only way our civil justice system allows victim’s families to redress the wrong that caused death of a loved one. After suffering such a loss it is essential to have the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney to explain to the family what should be done in pursuing a claim for wrongful death. Martinez Law provides free and confidential consultations to the surviving family in this sensitive area of law.

You and your family should not make any major decisions that may limit future recoveries without consulting a firm that is experience in the matters of a wrongful death case. Do not enter into any settlement, sign any release or accept any money in exchange for releasing an individual, corporation, or insurance company from liability without knowing all remedies that are available to you and your family.

Martinez Law will fight for compensation to recover damages arising from medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of consortium, and loss of anticipated earnings.
