Have You Been Involved In A Slip- Or Trip-And-Fall Accident?

One of the most common personal injury claims is known as a slip-and-fall accident, which means someone slipped or tripped and fell on someone else's property and was injured as a result. Slip-and-fall accidents can happen on any premises where business owners, managers, employees, property owners, homeowners or landlords allow an unsafe condition on their property to exist. These incidents are legally known as premises liability cases. Texas law is tough on this type of case, so you should consult an attorney immediately to determine if you have a viable claim.

Not everyone who slips and falls in a store, parking lot or a rented apartment has grounds to file a lawsuit. Sometimes, a business owner or landlord is not aware of a hazard that may have developed shortly before the accident. In other cases, a property owner cannot be held responsible if it's determined that an ordinary person should have expected to find the hazard and avoided it. That being said, there are many instances where victims have a legitimate case. Accidents can happen for any number of reasons, from grocery store managers who fail to promptly address a spill to hotel staff who fail to upkeep a sidewalk during the winter months.
