Austin Premises Liability Lawyers | How Carabin Shaw Can Help
Despite sounding like a more lighthearted or humorous event, slip and fall accidents in Austin can result in incredible damages and lead to complex legal claims. Property owners in Austin owe it to their visitors to provide a safe and danger-free space or, at the very least, to make visitors aware of the potential dangers. Such injuries often lead to high medical bills, lost wages, and other dangerous repercussions. All of these add up, especially while property owners attempt to shift the blame for the accident to you, the victim. If you have suffered from a slip and fall injury, then the Austin slip and fall accident attorneys with Carabin Shaw will fight for the compensation that you deserve.
One of the major benefits to working with an expert lawyer is in establishing fault for the accident. Austin requires that the victim be less than 50% responsible for the accident, and only then can a claim be filed. Our attorneys will help you through the process of filing the claim and identifying liability, and offer free case review and initial consultation to provide you with those necessary resources.When Is a Property Owner Liable?
Property owners are required by law to maintain the property in such a way that it is reasonably safe for visitors. This means that, if the slip and fall accident occurred on a private property, the owner is likely to be liable. A strong case is still required, though, as the property owner is likely to do whatever they can to avoid that liability. The liable party can vary depending on where your accident occurred, such as an individual owner of a house, a business that owns a store, or a government entity that owns something like a city pool
Although property owners are required to maintain a certain level of safety, there are cases where the visitor to a property is expected to recognize danger on their own. In cases with “open and obvious” conditions like this, whether or not the victim knew of the danger is irrelevant. Instead, what matters is whether a “reasonable person” would have identified the dangerous condition. These arguments become even more complex with children and youths who do not have the experience to make such assessments.
The best way to establish a strong case is to work with master attorneys local to the city of your accident.
