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

To recover damages in an Texas slip and fall case, you generally have to demonstrate:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable threat of injury 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 carpets
  • 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 ordinary care, should have known of both the condition and injury possibility. In other words, the owner or occupier had "actual notice" based on seeing the slip and fall risk or creating the hazard or "constructive notice" based on the hazard 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 recognized the risk or would fail to protect yourself against the risk. For example, you would not have known that an office building lobby was slippery since it had just been mopped.
  • The property owner failed to take reasonable measures to protect you by either fixing the hazard or providing you an adequate warning regarding it.
  • As a result of the property owner's carelessness, you suffered injuries.

As you contemplate whether you have the option to bring a slip and fall claim, you will need to ask yourself several essential questions, including:

  • If you tripped or slipped, had the dangerous area 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 safer area the object could have been located without much more inconvenience or cost to the property owner?
  • Could a basic barrier have been created or a warning provided to prevent you from slipping or tripping?
  • Did insufficient or damaged lighting contribute to the accident?


A slip and fall accident can lead to a wide variety of severe injuries, including bone fractures, soft-tissue damage, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is essential to work with an attorney that will pursue maximum compensation for the damage you have experienced, including:

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

A property owner's insurance company may try to put blame on you for your slip and fall accident. For example, the insurance provider may allege that you tripped, slipped and fell due to an "open and obvious" risk that you should have recognized or did something else that was negligent.

In Texas, you could be denied from recuperating anything if you were more than 50 percent responsible for your injury. Otherwise, your damages would be decreased by an amount that is in proportion to the percentage of fault attributed to you.

Your lawyer from Dunk Law Firm, will aggressively counter any unfounded claims made by a property owner's insurance company and work diligently to protect your legal rights.


It is important 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 immediately to preserve proof and start the process of bringing a claim against the property owner.

A slip and fall claim, like other personal injury lawsuits in Texas, needs to be filed within two years after an accident has occurred. 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 make sure your case is timely and correctly filed.
