Who's At Fault In A Slip-And-Fall?

Individuals are often injured through slips and falls. Indeed, the slip- or trip-and-fall case is one of the most common reasons people sue property owners. In these incidents, the accident is a result of negligence. The question to ask is who is to blame?

Proving that a property owner is at-fault can be incredibly difficult. The attorneys at Kyle Law Firm can help. We have more than 60 years of combined experience asserting the rights and interests of our clients in personal injury claims. Based in New Braunfels, and serving throughout central Texas, we can help you in your efforts to maximize your compensation.

What Causes Slip-And-Falls?

Slip and fall cases take many forms:

  • A person may slip on a wet, icy or oily surface.
  • A person stumbles on an obstacle in his path and falls.
  • There may be a hole on the walking surface, or other defect that causes a person to trip or stumble and fall.
  • Floors, sidewalks, stairways, escalators, and elevators are just a few places a person can fall and injure him or herself.

In most cases the injury is minor or temporary. Severe injuries occur, however, and include head trauma, broken limbs, neck and back injuries, and in rare cases, even death.

Do I Have a Valid Claim?

The main reason for lawsuits after a slip and fall is that the victim is seriously hurt, and the injuries interfere with daily life. Some injuries prevent a person from continuing to work or performing daily activities. In extreme cases paralysis may be the result of the fall.

When a person's life is extremely altered by a fall, it is a good idea to meet with a slip and fall attorney like those at The Kyle Law Firm. Having an attorney like ours with experience in this area increases the chances of winning your lawsuit. We understand how important it is to prove that the property owner was at fault and did not take proper care to prevent such accidents from happening. Many slip fall cases are hard to prove if you don't have a good personal injury attorney because the defendant maintains that the victim was careless and not paying attention, and did not take responsibility for his own safety.
