A slip and fall accident is a type of premises liability case. It can be brought against any type of property owner or occupier, including a private homeowner, store or other business or a local, state or federal government.

To recoup damages in an Texas slip and fall claim, you generally have to show:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable threat of harm to you. Hazards that could cause someone to slip, trip and fall include:
  • Broken or uneven pavement on walkways or in parking lots
  • Snowy, icy or wet floors and walkways
  • Ripped, torn or loose rugs and carpeting
  • Liquids spilled on floors
  • Broken or uneven stairways
  • Poor lighting in hallways, stairwells, or outside walkways
  • Holes in the ground or objects sticking out of the ground
  • Broken, missing or loose handrails
  • Faulty escalators or elevators
  • The property owner knew or, in the exercise of normal care, should have known of both the condition and injury risk. In other words, the owner or occupier had "actual notice" based on seeing the slip and fall hazard or creating the hazard or "constructive notice" based on the risk existing long enough that the owner or inhabitant should have seen it.
  • The property owner could have reasonably anticipated that you would not have discovered or understood the danger or would fail to protect yourself against the danger. For example, you would not have known that an office building lobby was slippery because it had recently been mopped.
  • The property owner neglected to take sensible steps to protect you by either fixing the hazard or providing you a proper warning about it.
  • As a result of the property owner's carelessness, you suffered injuries.

As you contemplate whether you have the power to bring a slip and fall claim, you will need to ask yourself a number of vital questions, including:

  • If you tripped or slipped, had the hazardous spot been there long enough so that the owner should have known about it?
  • If there once was a good reason for the object to be there but that reason no longer exists, could the object have been removed?
  • Was there a more secure place the object could have been located without much greater inconvenience or expense to the property owner?
  • Could a basic barrier have been developed or a warning offered to stop you from slipping or tripping?
  • Did insufficient or broken lighting contribute to the accident?


A slip and fall accident can result in a variety of severe injuries, including bone fractures, soft-tissue damage, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is important to consult with a lawyer that will seek maximum reimbursement for the damage you have experienced, including:

  • Past and also future medical costs
  • Lost wages and decreased earning capability
  • Dolor y sufrimiento
  • Loss of quality of life

A property owner's insurance company might try to place blame on you for your slip and fall accident. For instance, the insurer might claim that you tripped, slipped and fell because of an "open and obvious" risk that you should have recognized or did something else that was negligent.

In Texas, you could be barred from recouping anything if you were more than 50 percent at fault for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be decreased by an amount that is proportional to the percentage of fault credited to you.

Your attorney from Dunk Law Firm, will aggressively oppose any unfounded claims made by a property owner's insurance company and work hard to defend your legal rights.


It is vital to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible if you are injured in a slip and fall accident. An attorney must take steps right away to preserve proof and begin the process of bringing a case against the property owner.

A slip and fall claim, like other personal injury lawsuits in Texas, must be submitted within two years after an accident has taken place. This is called the statute of limitations. If you fail to meet that deadline, you could be denied from seeking a claim.

A Texas slip and fall lawyer at Dunk Law Firm, will ensure your claim is prompt and properly filed.
