Slip-And-Fall/Trip-And-Fall Accidents

It is very difficult to win compensation for your serious injuries if you slipped or tripped on someone else’s property.

You may have lost wages from not being able to go to work, and have medical expenses you are not sure will get paid, but the courts require that you prove the landowner was at fault in order for you to recover compensation for your injuries.

While property owners owe you a duty to keep their property free of risky conditions, or to warn you about them, proving fault is complex.

You have options to file a claim against the property owner’s insurance company or take your case to court, suing for personal injury, and you have a limited time to do so.

We Navigate Your Best Course Through The Statute Of Limitations

In Texas there is a two-year deadline to file suit seeking compensation for your injuries from a slip-and-fall accident or a trip-and-fall accident on someone else’s property. You must file a slip-and-fall personal injury lawsuit within two years from the date of your accident.

The property owner could assert that you were partly at fault for your accident, and your compensation would be minimized under the shared fault, or comparative negligence rule.

If you are in a trial and the jury considers your actions made you more than 50 percent at fault for your accident, you will not be able to recover a financial award from the property owner.
