Due to the perennially warm climate, residential and commercial properties in California may require regular fumigation to help protect the health of both the buildings and their residents from infestations. Among the nastier types of insects, Californians may have to contend with are bed bugs, cockroaches, and termites. A report released by Orkin Pest Control ranking the top 50 cities most at risk for termite damage in the United States placed three major California cities within the top 15: San Diego in 11th place, San Francisco at 9th, and Los Angeles as the 2nd most at risk for termite damage in the entire country.

If you were hurt at a retail store or other business, speak with a manager and ask to fill out an incident report. Make sure to also get a copy of the report for your own records. If you were injured on a residential property, notify the property owner of your injury as soon as possible.

Get Medical Attention Right Away

It can be nearly impossible to bring a successful injury claim without medical documents which prove the extent of your injuries. Even if you believe that your injuries do not require emergency medical attention, go to the hospital or a doctor’s office immediately after an injury-causing accident.
