Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer in Fort Worth, Texas
Slips, trips and falls sound like minor accidents, and they can be. But under the wrong circumstances, they can also be very serious. Slipping and falling can cause broken bones, head injuries, neck, back problems and more. A fall from a height can be life-threatening or disabling. When the fall was caused by someone else’s carelessness, victims should talk to a Texas slip and fall accident lawyer to learn about their legal rights.
Not all slip and fall accidents are another person’s fault, of course. But when the accident was caused by a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, victims may have a strong claim. Under Texas premises liability law, anyone who invites others onto their property has an obligation to make sure that property is reasonably safe. If a hazard appears, it should be cleaned up within a reasonable amount of time. If it can’t be cleared, a warning should be posted. Failure to do this can lead to a lawsuit from a Fort Worth, Texas slip and fall accident attorney.
If you’re considering a lawsuit and you’d like to speak with an experienced Texas slip and fall accident attorney, I want to help. Please call me at 800-994-1966 for a free case evaluation or contact me online.
Slip and fall attorneys in Fort Worth take cases related to any unexpected hazard. This could include cords and cables, slippery substances, rugs and floor mats that aren’t secured, holes and cracks. Dim lighting can worsen some of these conditions. On stairways and balconies, missing handrails or uneven surfaces can cause serious slip and fall accidents. Outside the building, property owners generally have an obligation to clear snow and debris from the nearby sidewalks.
Slip and fall injuries can have long-term or even life-altering consequences. Broken bones and neck or spine injuries may require long-term care, and head and spinal injuries can leave the victim disabled for life. When these accidents are the direct result of a property owner’s failure to clear hazards, victims should talk to a Texas slip and fall accident lawyer right away.
