Nueces County Slip, Trip, and Fall Injury Attorneys Also Serving Aransas Pass and Kingsville

When a person loses their footing and falls down, they may not expect to suffer serious harm. However, these types of incidents can be surprisingly dangerous, and a person may suffer multiple types of injuries, including broken bones, dislocated joints, or sprained muscles. In serious cases, these accidents can result in catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries, and if a person falls from a great height, they may suffer permanent disabilities or wrongful death. People who are injured in slip, trip, and fall accidents while on someone else's property may be able to pursue financial compensation through a premises liability claim or lawsuit.

Victims of slip and fall injuries can take steps to recover compensation by working with an experienced personal injury attorney. The Edwards Law Firm provides legal representation for victims injured by other people's negligence, and we work to ensure that our clients' injuries and damages are fully addressed.

Causes of Slip and Fall Injuries

Property owners or tenants are required to address hazards that may affect the safety of visitors to their property, including customers at a store or restaurant or people visiting a residence or other private property. These hazards should be repaired or corrected, or warnings should be provided to ensure that visitors can avoid being injured. Property owners may be held liable for injuries that occur because they did not take the proper measures to protect visitors' safety.

Slip, trip, and fall accidents can occur because of:

  • Wet or slippery floors - Customers can easily slip on wet floors at a store or restaurant. These accidents may occur if floor mats are not used at a building's entrances, if warning signs are not provided when floors have been mopped or waxed, or if spills are not cleaned up within a reasonable amount of time.
  • Damaged walking surfaces - People walking outside a building may trip and fall due to issues such as cracked or broken sidewalks or potholes in parking lots. Damage to surfaces inside a building, such as missing floor tiles or torn carpets, can also lead to fall injuries.
  • Tripping hazards - Obstacles in areas where people walk can cause a person to trip and fall. These hazards may include electrical cords that stretch across floors or hallways or merchandise that obstructs the path of people walking through the aisles of a store.
  • Missing, damaged, or defective railings - A fall from a balcony or the upper level of a shopping mall may occur if railings do not provide the proper protection. A fall from an upper level to a lower level is likely to lead to severe or fatal injuries.
  • Dangerous stairs and stairwells - Fall injuries can occur if stairs are slippery, if steps are damaged, or if a stairwell has inadequate lighting. A person who trips or slips and falls down a set of stairs may suffer multiple forms of bodily harm.
