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 recuperate damages in an Texas slip and fall claim, you typically need to demonstrate:

  • A condition on the property presented an unreasonable threat of injury to you. Hazards that might cause someone to slip, trip and fall consist of:
  • 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 corridors, stairwells, or outside walkways
  • Holes in the ground or objects sticking out of the ground
  • Broken, missing or loose handrails
  • Defective escalators or elevators
  • The property owner knew or, in the exercise of ordinary care, should have known of both the condition and injury risk. Essentially, the owner or inhabitant 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 occupier should have seen it.
  • The property owner could have reasonably anticipated that you would not have discovered or recognized the danger or would fail to protect yourself against the risk. For instance, 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 repairing the hazard or giving you a proper warning regarding it.
  • As a result of the property owner's carelessness, you suffered injuries.

As you consider 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 existed long enough so that the owner should have known about it?
  • If there once was a good reason for the object to be there yet 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 made or a caution given to keep you from slipping or tripping?
  • Did insufficient or damaged lighting contribute to the accident?


A slip and fall accident can cause a variety of serious 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 suffered, including:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Lost wages and decreased earning capability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life

A property owner's insurance company might attempt to put blame on you for your slip and fall accident. For instance, the insurance provider may assert that you tripped, slipped and fell due to an "open and obvious" hazard 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 reduced by a quantity that is proportionate to the percentage of fault credited to you.

Your legal representative from Dunk Law Firm, will aggressively counter any kind of unfounded claims made by a property owner's insurance company as well as work diligently to defend your rights.


It is essential to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible if you are hurt in a slip and fall accident. An attorney must take steps immediately to preserve proof and start the process of bringing a case against the property owner.

A slip and fall case, like other personal injury cases in Texas, must be submitted 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 pursuing a claim.

A Texas slip and fall attorney at Dunk Law Firm, will ensure your claim is prompt and correctly submitted.
