Slip & Fall Injuries In Texas
Slip and fall injuries are some of the most common premises liability claims. Much like auto accidents, they occur when we least expect them. You may be walking along thinking about other issues, when suddenly your feet go out from under you and you strike the ground.
Most people feel embarrassed and try and get up and walk away. However, you should be careful to make sure that you are okay. If you feel that you need to receive medical attention, let the property owner know.
Make sure that you report your fall. Many stores have incident reports for accidents like this. They may want to send you to an emergency room or clinic of their choice. Go to that exam, but know that you can follow up with a doctor of your choice.
To establish a claim, we must show that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to fix that condition prior to the accident. This knowledge is one of the biggest hurdles in establishing a slip and fall claim.
