Dallas Slip-and-Fall Lawyer

When you suffer a fall, you can experience significant losses—between medical bills, lost work, and other worries. If this sounds like you, let a slip-and-fall lawyer in Dallas review your case today. 

A slip-and-fall can happen anywhere, at any time. Whether you’re walking down a Dallas county street, or shopping at a local grocery store, the possibility of falling is always present. But what happens when the negligence of a shop owner, city official, or other entity is the reason for your fall?

When your falling down injuries are serious, I may entitle you to financial compensation. Contact a Dallas slip-and-fall lawyer with Chris Lewis & Associates P.C. to find out how—for free.

Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents

In Texas, the victims of personal injuries caused by negligent, intentional, or other reckless actions (or non-actions) can file claims against the parties responsible for their injuries and losses.

When it comes to property owners, it’s expected that they take necessary actions to maintain their properties and keep them safe for visitors. If not, they should at least warn visitors about potential dangers they can encounter while visiting the property.

That’s why if you slip-and-fall while visiting someone else’s property, you may be able to hold them financially responsible for your injuries and all the associated costs.

But do slip-and-falls occur? These types of accidents are more common than you may believe. Some example causes of these accidents could be:

  • Slippery surfaces caused by accumulation of liquid, grease, ice, or similar
  • Uneven surfaces, such as sidewalks or pedestrian walkways
  • Broken stairs or steps
  • Broken or loose handrails or guards
  • Fraying or defective carpet, which could cause you to slip

Regardless of how you came to suffer your injuries, if they occurred in a slip-and-fall, the owner of the property may be found liable for your losses—which is why these lawsuits fall under the larger category of premises liability.

Compensation for Slip-and-Fall Victims

The amount and type of compensation that is available to you as a slip-and-fall victim depends on the nature and extent of your injuries.

All told, you could be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages for your injuries. Some example include:

  • All medical expenses related to the injury
  • Lost income and temporary or permanent disability
  • Property damages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress

Why Go With a Slip-and-Fall Lawyer in Dallas?

Whether you file a claim against a private property owner, a business owner or even a government agency, you’ll more than likely be dealing with their insurance company while you negotiate your damages.

However, getting a fair settlement involves a lot of steps, and is often easier said than done. The good news is that consulting an attorney for your case can significantly improve your chances of getting the best settlement offer possible.

Some things that an experience slip-and-fall attorney can do for you include:

  • Estimate the full value of your damages
  • Send a demand letter to the insurance company
  • File relevant paperwork and prepare for court (if necessary)
  • Keep you informed
