Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents 

Property owners are obligated to repair premises defects or warn visitors about safety hazards on the property until they can be corrected. Where they fail to do so, they may be held accountable for damages connected with the slip and fall injuries these dangerous conditions cause. 

Slip and fall injuries are commonly caused by:

  • Uneven or cracked floor or sidewalk surfaces
  • Potholes
  • Slippery floors
  • Torn carpets or mats
  • Debris on floors or pathways
  • Lack of or inadequate lighting 
  • Loose handrails or steps
  • Cords or wires in walkways

Slip and fall injury liability is commonly denied by property owners and/or their insurers to avoid paying out compensation for damages. Proving a slip and fall injury can be complicated for this reason, which is why it is essential that you have competent legal representation as soon as possible. Williams Attorneys will thoroughly investigate the matter to build a well-prepared claim that can be negotiated or taken to trial. 

Who Is Liable for Slip and Fall Cases in Texas?

In Texas, liability for a slip and fall accident will depend on the circumstances of the incident. Generally, property owners may be held liable for an individual’s injuries if they failed to exercise reasonable care when maintaining their premises or if they failed to warn visitors about potential dangers. To prove liability, victims must demonstrate that the property owner had knowledge of, or should have known about, any dangerous conditions on their premises but failed to take action. Evidence such as photos of the hazard and testimony from others who witnessed the incident can help bolster a claim of negligence against a property owner. With this evidence in hand, individuals can pursue maximum compensation with the help of our experienced Texas slip and fall lawyer in Corpus Christi.

What to Do After a Slip & Fall Accident

Ensure you seek medical attention after a slip and fall accident, even if you believe you are not injured. Symptoms of injuries can be delayed by hours or even days. A medical professional will be equipped to determine if you have been injured and what the extent of the injury may be.

It is also important to take photos of the accident scene, including the safety hazard that caused you to fall. It is important to know that property owners will likely remove or correct whatever the danger was. You should also preserve the clothing and shoes you were wearing at the time, as they are also valuable evidence.
