Legal Help for Victims of Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

At one time or another, we all lose our balance, take a misstep, miss a curb, and take a spill. Hopefully we get up with nothing more than a few bruises to our dignity and the hope that no one saw us look like a klutz. But the fact is that while some falls may be due to our own fault, others may be due to conditions that we could not possibly have known about, that were not adequately protected against, and that were avoidable with proper maintenance or care by the property owner. Sometimes the injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident can be severe and debilitating. The Dallas premises liability attorneys at The Law Office of WT Johnson stand ready to help you understand your legal rights and options for recovery.

Steps to Take After a Slip and Fall Injury

If you have suffered an injury on someone else's property, there are steps you can take to protect your rights. File a report with the property owner or manager and obtain a copy of that report for your records. Take photographs of the hazardous condition that caused your injury, be it a broken stair or slippery floor. It is also important to get contact information for anyone who may have witnessed the accident. Get prompt medical attention, treatment, and care for your injuries. Save all receipts and bills for expenses incurred as a result of your injury.

What Do You Need To Prove In A Slip and Fall Case?

Whether you have tripped and fallen on the sidewalk, in an office building, a government building, restaurant, retail store or private residence, you need representation. This is especially true if your injuries are so severe you can't return to work for weeks or months. Lost wages and mounting medical bills are the main reasons people file slip and fall lawsuits.

A slip and fall case is essentially a personal injury lawsuit where an individual was hurt because of a condition on someone else’s property. That condition could be a patch of ice, a wet or uneven floor, an unmarked step, cracked pavement, and so on. In order to be successful in pursuing a recovery against an owner or occupier of a piece of property, however, a claimant needs to be able to prove:

  1. That the condition that gave rise to the accident existed and by itself presented an unreasonable risk of injury.
  2. That the property owner/occupier knew or should have known of the unreasonable risk.
  3. That the property owner/occupier should have reasonably foreseen that someone entering the premises would not have been aware of or discovered the condition and thus avoided it.
  4. That the property owner/occupier failed to meet the standard of care and was negligent in either knowing about the risk and not remedying it or not taking reasonable steps to discover it and warn those entering the property.
  5. That the condition gave rise to the accident that caused the claimant’s injuries.
  6. That the claimant suffered injuries.
