All Texas property owners have the responsibility to maintain their property safe for those invited on the property. When this isn’t the case, slip and fall accidents can happen, leading to serious injuries that change a person’s life. Whether from broken stairs, uneven pavements, wet floors, or another hazard, one of our Houston slip and fall accident attorneys at Lassiter Law can help determine whether you’re owed compensation because of someone else’s negligence.
What Type of Lawyer Represents Clients in Slip and Fall Accidents?
A personal injury attorney is one that represents those injured in slip and fall accidents. Our legal professionals have the resources necessary to prove that someone was negligent and knew about the dangerous condition, which led to your injury. This makes them liable for the damages associated with this accident.
What Are the Slip and Fall Laws in Texas?
Texas follows modified comparative negligence laws. This means that the amount of fault of each party is determined and then the liable party must pay the amount of the settlement that corresponds to their fault. If you are found to bear over 50% of the blame, you won’t recover any compensation.
What’s the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Slip and Fall Accident Claim?
In Texas, injured victims have two years from the date of the accident to set forth a personal injury lawsuit. This makes it essential to hire a personal injury lawyer immediately after suffering injuries. Our Houston, Texas law firm offers free legal consultations, where we can discuss your injuries and the conditions of the accident to determine a fair amount of compensation.
