If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident, you could pursue compensation. The owner or manager of a property should keep it safe for guests. Those that neglect this important duty should be held accountable. Our Irving slip and fall accident lawyers from Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C. can help you and your family do that.

These places are likely to have slipping and tripping hazards, like puddles of liquid or equipment that has been left out. It is the responsibility of the owners and managers of such properties to keep these places safe and free from such hazards to the best of their ability.
No matter where your slip and fall accident occurred, your lawyer will fight to make things right for you and your family.

A slip and fall accident can cause grievous injuries, especially if the victim is older. These injuries can result in expensive hospital bills and necessitate multiple trips to the doctor. Victims of these accidents might even need prescription medications and physical rehabilitation.
Why should you be responsible for these costs on your own when someone else’s negligence caused your accident?
If you are out of work for an extended period due to your injuries, that can cause additional financial stress for your family. It is only fair that your compensation helps make up for these lost wages.
A slip and fall accident can leave victims unable to work in the same capacity as they did before. If you can no longer do the same job or work for as many hours, you could recover compensation that addresses this.
Injuries that leave lasting effects may not just affect your ability to work. Injuries from a slip and fall accident can also affect how you can spend your leisure time. If you can no longer participate in a sport, hobby, or activity that you loved before your accident, it could affect your compensation.
The physical and emotional pain you experienced during this time is quantifiable. Your lawyer will also consider this when valuating your losses.
