I went to Rocky's office, injured, confused, and not understanding what my options were, regarding my injury. Not only did they take care of my personal injury claim, they advised me on what other steps I should be taking to protect my interests.

Slip and Fall Accidents in Texas What You Should Know

If you slip or trip and fall on property in Texas, there is a possibility that the property owner can be held responsible for your injuries. Premises liability law in our state holds property owners accountable when dangerous conditions or negligence lead to an injury at their residence or place of business.

The key to any slip and fall case is proving that the property owner or manager, and not the injured party, bears responsibility for the injury. This can be complicated in Texas because our state has a comparative negligence rule, which means that a jury can determine that the victim and the property owner both share a portion of the blame for the slip and fall accident. Under this rule, if the property owner is found to be 70 percent responsible for the accident, then the victim will only receive 70 percent of their damages. However, if the property owner is found to be less than 50 percent responsible, then the victim will receive nothing.

Because trials can be long and costly, property owners and their insurance companies often try to resolve slip and fall cases through pre-trial settlements. Insurance companies are more likely to meet a victim's request for compensation when they know that the victim is working with a dedicated personal injury lawyer who is not afraid to go to trial. That's why it's important to hire a board-certified specialist like Arlington's Rocky Walton. When insurance companies hear from Rocky, they take the case seriously.

How Common Are Slip and Fall Accidents?

Time Is of the Essence Contact Us to Start Building Your Case

Texas has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases. That means that you only have two years from the date of your slip and fall accident in which to file a lawsuit. Preparing for a lawsuit in a premises liability case can take some time, so the sooner you contact the Law Firm of Roger 'Rocky' Walton, the better.

Contact our Arlington law firm today for a completely free case review. You can schedule a meeting with our slip and fall attorney by contacting us online or by giving us a call.

The Statute of Limitations

"Rocky Walton and his team were the best! They make sure that your injuries are first taken care off, before they start the case. They were extremely informative and kept me up to date while working on my case. They responded to all the questions I had. If you need the best accident lawyers in Grand Prairie or Arlington, they are your best bet!" Maria Rios, 5-Star Google Review

A Typical Slip and Fall Timeline What Injury Victims Can Expect

Every slip and fall case is unique. In no way are we guaranteeing that our slip and fall lawyer will handle your case according to the following timeline. However, many premises liability cases in Texas proceed as follows:

Collecting Information

Starting at your consultation, our lawyers will collect as much information as possible about the circumstances surrounding your slip and fall accident. In addition to listening intently to your story, we will determine who owns the property (whether it's an individual, corporation, or government entity), determine who their insurance company is (if they have one), attempt to track down any witnesses of your fall, and more.

Calculating Damages

The full economic impact of your personal injury may not be evident for several months after your slip and fall accident. Because you only get one chance at demanding compensation, our lawyers may recommend waiting to initiate legal action until the extent of your damages is clear. We will work with you to calculate the sum of your medical expenses and, if applicable, your lost wages, property damage, emotional trauma, and potentially more.

Demand Letter

When Rocky and his team in Arlington, TX, are sure that we have accounted for every possible cent that you are owed, we can send a letter to the negligent property owner or their insurance company demanding compensation in full for your losses.

Negotiation

Most likely, the insurance company will either deny the premises liability claim entirely or offer a lower settlement amount than we demanded. Rocky will attempt to negotiate with the insurance company, but he will never settle for any amount less than what he believes he can achieve in court.

Lawsuit, if Necessary

If the insurance company is not willing to pay you what you deserve after your slip and fall, then we will file a premises liability lawsuit and take them to court. As a board-certified specialist in personal injury trial law, Rocky Walton knows what it takes to convince a jury that the property owner was responsible for your slip and that you are entitled to compensation.

Why Were You on the Property? It Can Affect Your Case

Your reason for being on the dangerous property has major implications for the legitimacy of your case. When you visit our Arlington office for a free consultation after a slip and fall, one of our first questions will be, "Why were you on the premises?" Texas law defines three categories of visitors for premises liability cases:

Invitees

You are an invitee if you enter a property with the permission of the property owner for the mutual benefit of yourself and the owner. For example, if a friend invites you over for dinner, or if you enter a store during business hours, you are an invitee. Property owners can be liable for slip and fall injuries suffered by invitees if the owners know (or should know) that there is a slipping hazard and fail to make it safe or properly warn the invitee. Of the three visitor categories, invitees are owed the greatest amount of consideration from property owners.

Licensees

You are a licensee if you enter a property with the permission of the property owner for only your own benefit. For example, if you ask for someone's permission to enter their yard so you can look at their flowers, you are a licensee. Property owners can be liable for slip and fall injuries suffered by licensees if the owners know (or should know) that there is a slipping hazard and fail to make it safe or properly warn the licensee. Generally, property owners are considered to owe licensees less consideration than invitees. In other words, it is more difficult for licensees to be awarded compensation after a slip and fall accident.

Trespassers

You are a trespasser if you enter a property without permission or legal authority. Obviously, trespassers are owed no consideration by property owners. Only in extremely limited circumstances would a trespasser have grounds for a slip and fall lawsuit.
