Slip & Fall Accidents

Corpus Christi Slip & Fall Attorneys

Serving Clients in Nueces County & Beyond

Also referred to as premises liability law, slip and fall injuries occur when you are hurt because you fell down on someone else’s property and they knew of a dangerous condition. The attorneys at Bandas Law Firm, P.C. understand slip and fall laws specifically in Texas. This allows us to provide you with a high level of representation in your case.

Slip and fall accidents are, by far, the most common type of premises liability, although they aren’t the only type. These injuries can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • Wet floors
  • Slippery floors and surfaces
  • Defects in floors and surfaces
  • Broken stair rails and banisters
  • Falling objects that cause trips
  • Merchandise in the way of the path
  • Poor lighting
  • Torn or damaged carpeting or flooring

Essentially, a variety of different things can result in a slip, trip, and/or fall. In just one year, there are hundreds of thousands of these injuries and, if they are handled properly, they can result in compensation for the victim.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall, contact the Corpus Christi slip and fall lawyers at Bandas Law Firm, P.C. We have an experienced team of attorneys who know how to navigate Texas law in order to ensure your rights are protected.

Proving Liability in Slip & Fall Cases

In Texas, before you prove liability, you will need to show your status when you were injured. For example, were you an invitee, a licensee, or a trespasser? If you were invited or you are licensed to be on the property, then you can hold the property owner responsible. However, if you were trespassing, then you will not be able to file a claim.

The next thing that will need to be done is actually proving liability, which would include one of the following scenarios:

  • The property owner created the situation that leads to danger and the injury
  • The property owner knew about a dangerous condition and did not rectify it
  • The dangerous condition existed so long that reasonably, the property owner should have known about it and repaired it

Essentially, the only way you can prove liability is if you can show that the property owner chose to be negligent about something that created a hazardous situation. Alternatively, if the business or property owner did not follow building and safety codes, they can be held liable as well.

As you can see, there are a lot of twists and turns that come along with slip and fall cases. It is not so cut-and-dry as to simply get a property owner to pay your expenses. You have to prove that they should pay. This is not something you should tackle on your own since you have to prove the dangerous situation, prove the property owner didn’t do anything about it, and prove that this resulted in your injury. This takes more work than you may realize.
