Landscaping company disputes slip-and-fall lawsuit claim

A landscaping company located in another state has filed their objections to a slip\-and\-fall accusation made against them in court. The plaintiff in this case claims that the company was contracted for snow removal services and failed to properly remove the snow, causing injury. The plaintiff was an employee at a convenience store, where she fell after slipping on ice and snow. Slip-and-fall accidents are also an issue in the state of California.

In this case, the plaintiff alleges that she sustained personal injuries due to the actions of the landscaping company. She included claims of recklessness and general allegations of negligence against the company, known as "Home Grown." Home Grown seeks to remove any references to their alleged recklessness. This could remove any potential claim that the plaintiff has for punitive damages.

Home Grown states that although the plaintiff is claiming that they were reckless, she does not have any factual statement to prove so. Since allegations of recklessness or negligence are suggestive for punitive damages, Home Grown wishes for those allegations to be stricken. Home Grown also claims that the plaintiff's accusation of "negligence per se" is insufficient to prove guilt. An experienced and knowledgeable lawyer can fight back and help a jury understand exactly why the plaintiff would be eligible for recompense.

In California, as in other states, premises liability law requires that businesses provide a safe environment for the public, as well as employees. In slip-and-fall cases such as this, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help the victim file the proper documents and claims in order to get the recompense that they deserve. That recompense can the be used to pay for medical bills, time away from work and other financial responsibilities stemming from the accident.
