If you suffered a traumatic injury from a slip and fall, you're probably dealing with life-altering changes that generate emotional stress. You may also be entitled to non-economic compensation in specific instances. Such damages include:

How the Texas’ “Modified Comparative Negligence Rule” Affects a Slip and Fall Case in San Antonio

In a slip and fall lawsuit, a plaintiff can be determined to bear a specific proportion of fault for their accident under Texas' modified comparative responsibility law. In this case, their damages will be lowered correspondingly.

In this situation, a plaintiff who is found to be 25% at fault, for example, would have their total monetary amount of damages reduced by 25%. If you're judged to be at fault for more than 50% of your slip and fall in Texas, you won't be able to recover any compensation from the property owner or anybody else.
