Who’s Liable for My Allen Slip and Fall Accident?

Per chapter 75 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, a property owner can be held liable for any knowable hazards that cause a slip-and-fall accident or another incident that results in injury. That includes business owners, franchise owners, store operators, and more. This statute shows that any person to whom the business owner grants access, like a customer, employee, visitor, or vendor, is owed a duty of care. In some cases, those who are trespassing and suffer a slip and fall accident may also be able to seek damages. Your attorney can determine whether you had permission or were trespassing and how that impacts your ability to seek compensation.

In order to pursue a slip and fall accident case, your Allen slip and fall accident lawyer must be able to demonstrate that the property owner acted negligently and caused the accident that resulted in injuries. Here are the stipulations a slip and fall case must meet:

There Was a Potentially Dangerous Hazard on the Property

For instance, there was a puddle in an aisle at the grocery store, a pothole in the parking lot, or a piece of equipment in the middle of a walkway. Owners must make sure that all spaces of their property are well maintained and do their best to prevent all forms of potential hazards.

The Property Owner Knew About the Hazard or Should Have Been Aware of It

A business owner should be aware of hazards that are within the scope of proper organizational management (such as products not being stored properly), property maintenance (potholes in the parking lot), or operational standards (dirty or cracked floors). Your attorney can determine if the owner should have known about and addressed the hazard or if it was a hazard the owner couldn’t have known about or prevented.

The Property Owner Did Not Address the Hazard Effectively or in Time To Prevent an Accident

A business owner must fix all hazards and take preventative measures to avoid creating them. For example, they may clean up a spill, clear a walkway, add a light fixture to dark areas, or order repairs to broken stairs. They might use wet floor signs, caution tape, or gates to prevent people from accessing hazardous areas.

This Failure To Act, Either Intentional or Unintentional, Caused Your Slip and Fall Accident

If they don’t make the repairs or accommodations in time, they can be held liable. If there isn’t enough signage to indicate a hazard, like a wet floor sign or other caution sign, the business owner can still be liable.

Your Slip and Fall Accident Resulted in Injuries

Your case can be strong if you need any form of medical care, but especially if you need ongoing treatment, surgical procedures, physical therapy, and other costly treatment.

How Much Will My Slip and Fall Accident Compensation Be?

The amount of compensation you can receive from a slip and fall accident can depend on:

  • Whether it was on private or public property
  • What kind of public/private property
  • Who owned the property (i.e. a local business vs. a large corporation)
  • If you’re partially at fault for the incident
  • The type and severity of your injuries
  • Your financial and non-financial damages

After a slip and fall accident, you can seek compensation for the following types of damages:

  • Current and future medical bills, including emergency care, surgeries, physical therapy, medications, diagnostic tests, and home care
  • Lost wages, such as during recovery and/or due to short-term disability
  • Lost earning capacity if you suffer a long-term disability that prevents you from working
  • Lost spousal support if you lost your loved one as the result of a slip and fall accident
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional trauma and loss of enjoyment of life

How Long Do I Have To File a Lawsuit for a Slip and Fall Accident in Texas?

According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit to recover damages for a personal injury, like a slip and fall accident. Gathering evidence, building a case, and filing the suit takes time, and if you miss the deadline to file, you may not get another chance to recover that much-needed compensation.

That’s why it’s so important to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. The sooner you start working with an attorney, the better your chances of filing in full and on time.
