Slip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries, and the worst part about that is that many of these accidents could have been avoided. Negligence often leads to slip and fall accidents, and if you think that you or a loved one was hurt because someone else did not properly care for their property, you might be entitled to compensation. A San Antonio, Texas slip & fall lawyer from our firm can help you fight for a fair offer.

What Are Some Examples of Hazards That Can Cause Slip and Fall Accidents?

Plenty of things can cause someone to slip and hurt themselves. Some hazards that we see often in cases like these include:

  • Wet floors
  • Broken stairs or walkways
  • Bad lighting
  • Exposed wiring
  • Loose or bulging mats or rugs
  • Clutter or debris in walkways

The people who own a property or manage it should be on the lookout for these kinds of hazards and they should be addressing them as they come up. If they just leave dangerous conditions for guests to navigate, they should be held accountable when those guests get hurt.

What Kinds of Injuries Are Common in Slip and Fall Accidents?

Injuries from slip and fall accidents can range from minor bruises and sprains to more serious injuries, like broken bones. Falls can be especially dangerous for seniors. Broken hips are a common outcome for older victims. This can affect someone’s mobility for the rest of their life. Older fall victims can also be left with psychological problems and become more fearful after falls, and this affects their quality of life.

Fall victims of any age can end up getting seriously hurt in slip and fall accidents. They can end up with spinal cord injuries, joint injuries, and even concussions. The road to recovery can be long and expensive.

What Kinds of Damages Can I Win If I Sue After My Accident?

This is why you should sue for damages after a slip and fall accident if you believe that someone else’s negligence was to blame. If a dangerous situation could have been avoided, then you may be entitled to compensation that will help make up for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Pain and suffering

Don’t let yourself be rushed into taking the first compensation offer you get. Let us negotiate on your behalf.

How Long Do I Have to Take Legal Action?

You do not have an unlimited time to file a lawsuit. Texas gives you two years in most cases. File after that point and your suit is likely to be thrown out of court.
