Harris County Premises Liability Attorney for Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries

There are a variety of situations where injuries can occur while a person is on someone else's property. These incidents may involve hazards that cause someone to lose their footing and fall down. When a person slips or trips due to conditions on a property that should have been addressed by the property owner, they may take legal action to pursue compensation by filing a premises liability lawsuit. To ensure that a victim's injuries and damages will be fully addressed, it is important to secure representation from an attorney who has experience with these types of cases.

The Law Office of Shane R. Kadlec provides legal help to clients in a wide variety of personal injury cases, including accidents that were caused by the negligence of property owners. Our founding attorney has over 25 years of legal experience, and he has represented thousands of clients in cases involving multiple types of injuries. We will work to secure full compensation for all of a person's damages, including the medical treatment they have received, any future treatment that will be needed, income lost while recovering from an injury, permanent disabilities that affect future earning capacity, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.

Pursuing Compensation for Slip and Fall Injuries

A slip, trip, and fall accident can lead to multiple different types of injuries. These may include broken bones, dislocated joints, or sprains. In more serious cases, a person may strike their head on the ground or other objects and suffer traumatic brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries may occur that can lead to paralysis or loss of mobility. If a fall occurs from a great height, a person may suffer catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.

Slip, trip, and fall injuries can occur for multiple reasons, including:

  • Wet floors - If spills are not cleaned up correctly, if the areas around a building's entrance are not kept dry through the use of floor mats, or if customers are not provided with warnings about slippery floors that have been recently mopped, visitors to an establishment may slip and fall.
  • Damaged sidewalks or parking lots - Large cracks, gaps, or uneven surfaces on sidewalks may cause people to trip and fall. Potholes and other hazards in parking lots may also lead to dangerous tripping accidents. If an area does not have sufficient lighting, customers may be unable to see and avoid these hazards when walking at night. A property owner may be liable for their failure to repair these types of defects or ensure that people can avoid accidents and injuries.
  • Dangerous stairwells - Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents on stairs can be very dangerous, and a person may suffer multiple types of injuries as they tumble down a flight of stairs. These accidents may occur if steps are damaged or slippery, if handrails are broken, or if a stairwell does not have adequate lighting.
  • Damaged or defective railings - Shopping malls, department stores, and other locations may have multiple levels, and adequate railings must be provided to protect against falls from upper levels. If railings do not function properly, fall injuries may occur, and they may result in permanent disabilities or death.
