Property Owners in Atascocita Have an Obligation to Prevent or Correct Hazardous Conditions
It is our experience that many slip and fall accidents are the results of property owners who do not prevent or correct dangerous conditions. Property owners – whether it is a store owner, landlord, or a city –have a legal obligation to provide a safe place for you to shop, live, or relax. Employers also must provide a safe workplace. Common areas for slip and fall accidents to occur include:
- Job sites
- Escalators and elevators
- Slick floors and/or ripped carpeting
The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that floors and flooring materials contribute to over 2 million falls every year. This is why property owners should take extra precautions to promptly remove water, debris, or another potential floor hazard.
Negligent Property Owners or Employers Might Have to Pay You Compensation
You could receive compensation for damages if we can show that the other person or party is negligent. If the property owner or employer did not prevent or correct dangerous conditions, that is negligence. You suffered injuries from their carelessness. Therefore, the property owner or employer is liable for your accident-related expenses and losses.
There Are Three Categories of Liability
- Direct liability is the person or party solely responsible for your injuries.
- Vicarious liability is a specific relationship to the person or party responsible and who may also be at fault.
- Respondeat Superior holds employers accountable for the negligence of employees.
D. Miller & Associates, PLLC Files a Claim on Your Behalf
No matter where your slip and fall accident occurred, you should see a doctor or medical professional right away. It is essential to have a record of your expenses related to the accident. Some accident victims suffer concussions, broken bones, spinal cord damage, and even traumatic brain injuries. After you have seen a doctor, please call (713) 850-8600 for a free case evaluation.
We Handle Workers’ Compensation Cases
If your slip and fall accident occurred on the job, our firm includes workers’ compensation in our personal injury practice areas. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind about workers’ compensation claims:
- Only your employer can file a workers’ compensation claim.
- You may be asked to see a specific doctor to verify injuries.
You must file a workplace accident report to begin the process of workers’ compensation coverage. Workers’ compensation insurance protects you regardless of negligence by you or your employer. However, if it is determined that you were partly at fault for your accident, your employer could ask for drug testing or more safety training.
For Other Slip and Fall Accidents, We File with the Property Owner’s Insurance
Both residential and commercial properties carry premises liability insurance. A lawyer from D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will typically pursue compensation from the property owner’s premises liability insurance. Often, we can negotiate a fair settlement. However, we will seek compensation in court if necessary. Texas allows two years from the accident date to file a slip and fall lawsuit.
The 51 Percent Liability Rule in Atascocita and Throughout Texas
Texas has a modified comparative negligence statute. If you are 51 percent or less liable for the accident, you may seek compensation for your physical, mental, or financial damages. For a free case evaluation about your slip and fall accident, call D. Miller & Associates, PLLC at (713) 850-8600.
