In a Slip and fall scenario, who is responsible?
When you slip and fall or trip and fall on someone else’s property and they knew about a dangerous condition but neglected to notify you or remove it, you might be able to file a slip and fall accident claim in Texas.
The duty owed by a person in charge of real property to a person who enters the property is assessed by the injured party’s legal status, according to Texas law. Depending on a person’s status while injured on a property, Premises Liability Law offers various safeguards and privileges. If you were a trespasser, for example, your rights could be limited compared to if you were invited onto the property. Slip and fall accidents can be caused by a variety of factors. This can include things like:
When you are involved in a slip and fall crash, you have the right to file a claim for your lost wages and earning capacity, medical costs, future medical treatment, pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical disability, and scarring.
Can I still recover damages if I was to blame for the accident?
Don’t be frightened. And if you are partially to blame, you can still be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries. Texas is a state with modified comparative faults. You are entitled to compensation if you are not more than 51% to blame for the slip and fall accident. In other words, the bulk of the blame for your fall and injury must fall on someone else (or several people or parties). The compensation will be divided accordingly depending upon the level of fault.
