Slip & Fall Lawyer in San Antonio, Texas

Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents, as well as other types of accidents due to unsafe property conditions are all but rare here in the state of Texas. That said, Texas is notoriously stringent when it comes to its standards for premises liability claims. That is why it’s always best to pursue these claims with a seasoned Bexar County, Texas personal injury attorney in your corner.

Unsafe Property Conditions

There are various property conditions that may be considered “unsafe.” Any property condition that should and could be remedied, however, is considered a safety hazard, though unfortunately, these conditions often go unrepaired and harm unsuspecting victims as a result. Some examples of unsafe property conditions are as follows:

  • Spilled liquids left uncleared away
  • Recently mopped floors without “wet floor” signs present, indicating potentially slippery surfaces
  • Dangerous stairwells
  • Defective smoke or carbon monoxide alarms
  • Potholes in sidewalks or uneven sidewalks
  • Broken glass or other debris left uncleared away
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Insufficient security

If you were harmed because of any of the aforementioned unsafe property conditions, you may have a valid premises liability claim.

How to Win a Premises Liability Claim

To win a premises liability claim, you and your slip & fall lawyer will have to gather a sufficient amount of evidence to prove that you were wrongfully injured. This can include pictures of the unsafe property conditions, surveillance footage of your accident, witness statements, and more. You will then have to use this evidence to prove the following:

  • There was an unsafe property condition.
  • The property owner either knew or should have known of the property condition.
  • The property owner neglected to repair the safety hazard timely.
  • You were injured as a direct result of the property owner’s failure to remedy the issue.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for most slip and fall accident claims is two years in Texas, giving you two years from the date of your accident to sue. That said, if you were injured on government or state-owned property, you will most likely have to file a Notice of Claim within six months of the date of your accident, which is why it’s best to hire a seasoned personal injury lawyer as soon after your accident as you can.
