Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
There are nearly endless ways that a property owner or manager can behave negligently and allow accidents to occur on their premises. If you have suffered serious injuries as a result of negligent maintenance or dangerous property conditions you need skilled lawyers on your side.
A few examples of how slip and fall accidents can occur include:
- Improperly stored equipment
- Violence or inadequate security
- Dangerous park rides
- Unsupervised swimming pools
- Building violations
- Unsafe stairways or balconies
- Uneven parking lots
Comparative Negligence in Slip & Fall Claims
One thing you need to be aware of when you are filing a claim for insurance about your slip and fall injury is that the property owner almost always tries to blame you for the accident. Under Texas’s law for comparative negligence, this would mean that because you are at least partly at fault, you will not get as much of a court reward or a settlement fund either.
For every “percentage” amount for which you are to blame, whether for wearing the wrong type of footwear, for not paying attention, or for ignoring “obvious” signs of danger, you will lose more of your recompense. If the property owner can show that you are at least 50% to blame for the accident, you will be unable to claim for any compensation at all.
Recoverable Damages in a Slip & Fall Case
A surprising number of people are completely unaware of how much they can recover for a slip and fall case. Clients initially assume that since they were not involved in something "major" like a car accident that perhaps recompense will be minor. However, there are several damages you can claim to help cover your tremendous suffering and pain, which can even last years.
Some of these recoverable damages include:
- Medical bills and expenses for therapy and recuperation
- Lost income as compensation for missing work time and benefits
- Inability to earn previous wages because of the severity of your injury
- Permanent impairment, disabilities, or disfigurement from the injury
- Extended suffering, pain, and mental and emotional trauma
