Negligence and Slip and Fall Accidents - San Antonio Injury Attorneys
Although they may sound harmless at first, slip and fall accidents have the potential to result in lifelong injury and debilitating harm. After a slip and fall in San Antonio, you may be unsure of what the next best steps to take are. At Carabin Shaw, our expert attorneys are dedicated to helping you and your loved ones through the process of filing your personal injury claim. With over thirty years of expert service committed to San Antonio and other Texas communities, few law firms have as much gathered experience and expertise in fighting for the justice that victims of these accidents deserve.
Slip and fall accidents can result in incredible stressors for victims and their family’s. Piling medical bills and lost wages from fewer work hours are only two substantial consequences. Debilitating injuries can lead to lifelong chronic pain or reduced mobility. Meanwhile, serious injuries to the head can result in brain damages that one can never truly recover from.
It is the stalwart belief of our lawyers that you deserve to place your full attention on your recovery. In order to provide you with the time and means to do so, we will support you through every step of your case, from the moment of your accident to the moment you receive your full compensation.Negligence and Slip and Fall Accidents
As with any personal injury case, the primary steps are to identify and prove liability by establishing the negligent behaviors that led to your accident. Slip and fall accidents can be caused by numerous hazards in a space, making establishing fault a large process. However, lawyers at Carabin Shaw are experts in their field and are familiar with the steps required to establish that liability.
The first step in the process is to prove that
- The owner of the property owed you a certain level of safety (as in premises liability cases)
- The property owner breached that duty
- The negligence and breach of that duty directly caused your injuries
- The injuries sustained from the accident resulted in financial consequences for you and your loved ones
Proving all of these is necessary for establishing a strong case, and San Antonio injury lawyers at Carabin Shaw will investigate your slip and fall in order to collect the necessary evidence for proving your claim.Proving Negligence
After having established liability, proving negligence is vital for a strong case. More often than not, the liable party will try and argue that the accident was entirely your fault as well. This means that you will have to prove one of the following:
- That the owner of the property should have reasonably known about the dangerous condition
- That the owner was aware of the condition and chose not to address it
- That the owner directly caused the dangerous condition
Establishing and proving negligence can be complex, especially as it applies to the “licensee,” “invitee,” and “trespasser” categories of other premises liability cases. These complex aspects of slip and fall cases are the reason that working with slip and fall accident attorneys in San Antonio Tx is so vital to forming a successful case. A victim may, of course, work without such guidance. But the odds of receiving the fully owned compensation are much lower without an expert attorney.Carabin Shaw | Slip and Fall Law Firm of San Antonio
