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. Texas 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% responsible for the accident, then the victim will only receive 70% of their damages. However, if the property owner is found to be less than 50% responsible, then the victim will receive nothing.
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?
Slip and fall accidents lead to over 1 million emergency room visits every year.

Why Were You on the Property? It Can Affect Your Case
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.
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.
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.
"Exceptional professionalism and expertise."
The entire team demonstrated exceptional professionalism and expertise. They fulfilled their commitments and exceeded expectations. Moreover, they displayed remarkable patience and understanding, considering the language barrier with my non-English speaking father-in-law and my out-of-state status, as I served as the intermediary. We were exceedingly satisfied with the service rendered and the favorable resolution of the matter. I wholeheartedly endorse their services.View on Google
