We all trip over our own feet from time to time — some of us more than others — so it’s normal to expect an occasional bump or bruise as a fact of life. Slips and falls become more serious, though, when they happen because of unsafe conditions on public or commercial property.

Property managers and maintenance workers who are responsible for retail stores, shopping malls, parking garages, banks, schools, restaurants, and apartment complexes are all supposed to make sure that people who visit their properties stay safe while they are there. Walkways should be free of tripping hazards, recently mopped floors should be conspicuously marked with “Wet Floor” signs, and parking areas should be well-lit for safe walking. You have a reasonable expectation of safety in any public space, and when that safety is violated, you do not have to face the aftermath alone.

I was really glad I hired Robert White. I had a severe back injury and the workers compensation carrier continued to deny my surgery. Mr. White made sure I had my surgery and that the insurance company paid for it. I did not have to wait until the lawsuit was finalized to have my surgery. I am so pleased with his work and his staff was very pleasant and helpful throughout the entire process. I was so pleased with his work, that I hired him on another accident. He did an excellent job on the second accident too.

Do I Have a Case?

If you are unsure whether you could be compensated for your injuries, contact our office today for a free case review. This will be the most accurate method of determining the options available in your specific situation. In the meantime, here are a few of the questions your attorney will consider when evaluating whether or not you have a case.

Some examples of situations that may lead to a slip and fall injury or another premises liability accident are

  • Inadequate signage designating unsafe areas (e.g. wet floor signs)
  • Inadequate lighting or security 
  • Lack of proper maintenance

If your accident was the result of negligent conditions such as these, it will most likely qualify as a premises liability case.

The Texas statute of limitations allows an individual to file a claim no more than two years after the accident that caused their injuries. In order to protect your right to compensation, it is important to contact us as soon as possible to get started.

In Texas, you can recover compensation for your injuries as long as you are not more than 50% to blame for the accident.

If you are found to share a percentage of the fault, your payment will be reduced by that percentage.

Our lawyers can help you gather the right information to prove the at-fault party’s liability and win you every dollar you deserve.

How Much Is My Slip and Fall Case Worth?

Among other potential accident-related expenses, these are the main types of losses that you may be able to recover in a premises liability claim:

  • Medical expenses to address your visits to the doctor, any surgeries and physical therapy, prescriptions to treat your injuries, and ER visits or hospital stays.
  • Wages to account for the income you’ve missed out on during recovery and are reasonably expected to miss out on in the future.
  • Non-financial losses in the form of pain and suffering damages; these are included to compensate for mental illness or trauma, loss of companionship, and lack of interest in activities you used to enjoy.

What’s Next?

After we review the details of your case, we will let you know what legal options you have to pursue compensation. With this free legal advice, you will be able to make the best choice for your particular situation.

In order to build the strongest case for maximum compensation, we will need to collect all available evidence. We will work with you to collect police reports, medical bills and records, witness and expert statements, and any photo or video evidence that proves negligence caused your accident.

The last thing you want to deal with is the insurance adjuster’s call — they are only interested in underpaying or denying your claim, usually through false pretenses and manipulation tactics. We handle the insurance company because we know their tricks, and we accept only a fair settlement for the suffering you’ve experienced.

It will always be your choice whether you accept the insurance company’s final offer or not. If you do, we will do our best to get that check in your hands as soon as possible.

Slip and Fall FAQs

Because we believe that every Texan should have access to affordable legal services, we never charge any fees unless we win. Even your initial case review is free, so you have everything to gain by giving us a call!

“Premises liability” is the legal terminology for holding property owners responsible for the safety of their guests. This encompasses slip and falls as well as injuries caused by, among other things, falling objects, dangerous ice- and snow-covered paths, subpar security, and unmarked or unaddressed hazards (e.g. no “Wet Floor” sign on a freshly-mopped floor). 

Simply speaking, when danger is present, property managers are required by law to provide a warning and to repair the unsafe condition within a reasonable amount of time.

There are three basic steps you can take after a slip and fall accident to protect your rights:

  • Seek Medical Treatment

If you have sustained severe injuries, you may need to call for first responders. Even if your injuries don’t seem severe, you should still be evaluated by your doctor as soon as possible to check for underlying injuries and to have records connecting your accident to your injuries.

  • Document Everything

As much as you are able, you should document the surroundings that led to your accident — get photos, videos, and the contact information of any witnesses at the scene. Try to do this before the property owner attempts to address the hazard.

  • Hire a Premises Liability Lawyer

As soon as possible, you will want to contact Braker White to begin working on your claim. The sooner you do this, the more likely you are to file on time and include every bit of evidence necessary.

Texas slip and fall accident victims will have two years from the date of injury to file their claim. That being said, each case is unique, so the best practice will be to get in touch with our attorneys immediately to be sure you do not miss out on the compensation you’re due.

Texas follows a modified comparative negligence system which states that victims can seek compensation as long as their responsibility for the accident is not greater than the property owner’s. This means that if you are over 50% liable for the accident that caused your injuries, you will not be able to seek compensation.

At the same time, if you are found partially responsible for your accident but can still claim compensation, your final settlement will be reduced by your percentage or liability.

For example, if your accident is determined to have been 20% your fault and your damages are worth a total of $10,000, you will only receive $8,000 ($10,000 reduced by 20%).

We have experience protecting our clients from being blamed for their injuries, so don’t try to take on the insurance company alone.
