Why Injuries Happen

Injuries occur on college campuses for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of injuries on college campuses include:

  • Slip and fall accidents (due to liquids on floors or sidewalks, etc.)
  • Inadequate maintenance (loose hand railings, hazardous sidewalks, etc.)
  • Negligent security (especially in cases involving assault or rape)
  • Poor lighting
  • Unmarked hazards

There are many other kinds of accidents and injuries on college campuses in California. And each one deserves to be taken seriously. That's why injured college students turn to us when they need help.

Trust Our Legal Team

Don't simply assume that your injury will be taken seriously and that you will receive the financial compensation you deserve after your accident. In many cases, colleges try to downplay the severity of such injuries. And many insurance companies often do everything they can to reduce or deny such claims altogether.

We know how to handle such complex cases. We know how to investigate injuries on campus - from obtaining inspection reports (did the college know something was wrong?) to interviewing witnesses and consulting with experts to reviewing all relevant materials. We also know how to negotiate with insurance companies. And if they refuse to cooperate, we will take them to court.
