What causes slips, trips, and falls? What kinds of accidents qualify victims to file a personal injury lawsuit? The following scenarios demonstrate some of the most common causes of slip and falls in Houston. However, there are many different causes of slip and fall accidents that may not be illustrated here; it is important to consult with a Houston personal injury attorney to analyze the details of your claim.
The following examples illustrate accidents which would qualify the victims to seek compensation. These examples include:
- A family is browsing in a shop at the Galleria. Employees have recently mopped up a spill on the tile floor but have failed to place a “wet floor” cone on the slippery area to alert customers. The family’s mother slips on this wet tile and fractures her hip as a result.
- A father and son are watching a game at Minute Maid Park. There is a loose step on their way to their seats, causing the father to trip and strike his head on the protective railing.
- A young man is grocery shopping at his local HEB. While stocking the shelves, one of the store’s employees has obstructed the walkway of the aisle with towering piles of boxes. As the man tries to pass through this obstruction, he is tripped by the piles of product and sprains his ankle.
Some victims of slip and falls on Houston premises may be surprised to learn they have legal options following their accidents. In fact, many slip and fall accident victims will simply accept the first payout offer from their insurance company without considering whether the negligence of the property or business owner was the blame for their injuries.
If your slip and fall accident was caused by a property owner’s negligence, Texas law allows you to seek compensation for your injuries in a personal injury lawsuit. However, if you are not represented by an experienced premises liability attorney, you may not receive fair compensation for your physical, financial, and emotional losses. Additionally, your attorney’s specialty practice areas will allow them to navigate the intricacies of Texas premises liability law and ensure your case is rock solid.
In short, there are many benefits to hiring the right injury lawyer for your claim.
