Damages Available in a Winning League City Slip and Fall Accident Case
Texas law allows you to hold a property owner or operator liable for the injuries you suffered in a slip and fall accident if you can prove they acted negligently by failing to prevent your injuries. You may be able to recover compensation to pay your medical bills, cover lost wages, and more.
We will help you build a solid case for compensation, and file your claim for you. If necessary, we can prosecute your case and represent you in court.

The exact damages available to you if we win your case will depend on the specific losses you experienced. In general, however, some of the most common types of damages we recover for our clients include:
- Medical treatment and related costs
- Ongoing care costs
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Replacement of damaged property
- Related out-of-pocket costs
- Pain and suffering damages
If we take your case to court and the judge determines the property owner acted in maliciously or intentionally, you could also receive punitive damages.
Negligence in a League City Slip and Fall Accident
Property owners and occupiers have a responsibility to keep their property free from unreasonable hazards, including:
- Private residences
- Other private properties
- Retail stores
- Grocery stores
- Parking lots
- Public parks
- Public sidewalks
In general, a slip and fall injury may qualify as negligence if the property owner fails to identify a hazard when they had a reasonable chance to or is aware of a hazard and fails to repair it or issue a warning.
It is important to note that the property owner does not have to be the one who fails to notice the hazard or who does not take action after seeing it. Because of legal doctrine, vicarious liability, business owners are responsible for the actions of their employers while they are on the clock.
You could file a claim against a restaurant or store even if the property owner or manager was not on-site. They may still be legally responsible for your injuries and the resulting damages.
Investigating Your League City Slip and Fall Case
Before we can pursue an insurance claim or premises liability lawsuit on your behalf, we need to make sure we understand how and why you fell, and if negligence played a role. We investigate thoroughly every case we handle to answer these questions and build the most persuasive case possible to help us fight for compensation. We typically need to prove:
- You were not trespassing at the time your injuries occurred
- You fell because of an unreasonable hazard
- Property owner or employee knew or should have known about the hazard
- They did not warn you adequately about the hazard
- They took no action to remove or repair the hazard
- The hazard caused you to slip and fall
- You suffered physical injuries and financial losses
In an attempt to prove each of these factors, we will identify, collect, and analyze evidence about your case including:
- Police reports or accident reports filed at the time of your fall
- Witness statements, as well as their photos or videos of the scene
- A full survey of the scene, with photographs
- Video of the fall, when available from security cameras or other sources
- Any evidence to show the property owner knew about the hazard
- Your medical records
- Documentation of your damages, such as medical bills and receipts
Only once we have this evidence and believe we have the strongest case possible against the property owner will we approach their homeowner’s insurance company or business liability insurer about filing a claim.
Often, we can negotiate a fair settlement agreement with the insurance company. When this is not possible, we are not afraid to file a lawsuit.
