Can You File a Slip and Fall Lawsuit?

Slip and fall accidents, which are often considered “premises liability” cases, can result in serious injury – and you may need to talk to a slip and fall lawyer in Texas to get the financial compensation you deserve.

If you’ve fallen on someone else’s property and that fall resulted in injuries, you could be eligible to file a slip and fall lawsuit in the state of Texas. 

However, it’ll be your attorney’s responsibility to prove that it was the property owner’s negligence that caused your injuries.

Proving Fault in a Slip and Fall

Sometimes it can be tough to prove who is at fault in a slip and fall accident. The first thing your attorney will look at is whether the property owner could have prevented the accident. In some cases, property owners aren’t responsible for things that a reasonable person would have avoided.

Your lawyer will most likely have to show one of the following:

The property owner of the person in charge of caring for the property knew about the dangerous condition but failed to repair it.

The property owner or the person in charge of caring for the property should have known about the dangerous condition because another person in the same position would have known about it and fixed it.

The property owner or the person in charge of caring for the property caused the dangerous condition.

Slip & Fall Accident - Do You Have Evidence?

You should always avoid giving recorded statements to insurance companies – and that includes your own insurance company. 

Insurance adjusters are in the business of saving their company’s money, and that may mean they will look for a reason to avoid providing you with fair compensation.

Evidence in Your Slip and Fall Case

There are a number of pieces of evidence your attorney may need to help prove fault in a slip and fall case. You can do your part by:

Getting the names and phone numbers of witnesses

Taking pictures of the scene and of your injuries

Keeping your footwear and clothing from the incident

Giving your lawyer copies of your medical records

Property Owners’ Responsibilities

Business owners owe their guests reasonably safe conditions. That includes keeping floors, aisles and stairs free from slipping, tripping and falling hazards, as well as other hazards that can harm shoppers or visitors.

People who visit businesses have responsibilities, too. They include staying away from areas marked “Do Not Enter” and following warning signs that say things like “Caution: Wet Floor.”

Unfortunately, some businesses don’t take the right steps and procedures to ensure a visitors safety – and as a result people can get badly hurt.

Common Causes of Slips, Trips & Falls

In many cases, property owners who don’t maintain their properties in a reasonably safe condition can be held responsible for hurting their visitors and guests. Some of the things businesses fail to do that result in injury include:

  • Failing to remove ice from walkways and stairways
  • Failing to clean up spills or warn visitors and guests that a hazard exists
  • Failure to mark dangerous areas
  • Poor lighting
