Slip & Fall Injury - Fort Worth Attorney

Representation if you've Suffered Injury from a Slip and Fall

In general terms, “slip and fall” accidents refer to situations where a person is injured by slipping, or tripping, and falling due to a dangerous condition on the premises. Such falls can happen inside or outside a building, and be caused by such conditions as bad flooring, wet floors, poorly lighted steps, or, in the case of outdoor accidents, weather-related or hidden hazards. For instance, an icy patch outside a door, crack, or pothole can be the cause of a slip and fall in a parking lot.  Property owners are responsible for the safety of those who pass through their premises. This means they need to clean up spills, provide well-lit walkways, prevent elevator accidents, and put up signs warning of any potential hazard.
 
If you experience a slip and fall accident, you should try to determine what made you fall and if it could have been anticipated and prevented. If anyone saw you fall, be sure you get the names and addresses of all witnesses. Try to note the conditions in the area – was the lighting poor, was there some substance that made you slip. If you did slip because of something on the floor, try to obtain a sample. Also, try to get pictures of the area. Report any such accident to the manager or owner and insist that they make a record of it.  Damages for a slip and fall injury usually include medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, loss of income and punitive damages.
