The Journey with Your Austin Slip & Fall Injury Lawyer

An accident where someone trips falls, or slips on someone else’s property because of dangerous conditions is referred to as a slip-and-fall injury. These accidents can happen indoors or outdoors and may occur in various settings, such as public sidewalks, retail stores, restaurants, office buildings, or private residences. Consulting with an Austin slip & fall injury lawyer that focuses on premises liability law may be helpful in these situations. To make sure the injured party receives just recompense for their losses and injuries, these Austin slip & fall injury lawyers can investigate the accident scene, establish who was at fault, and defend the injured party’s rights.

Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors about any known hazards. If someone is injured in a slip-and-fall accident due to the property owner’s negligence or failure to address dangerous conditions, the injured party may have grounds to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit seeking compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

A slip and fall injury can be devastating: fractures, serious injury, injuries that are likely to become serious (like a back or neck injury with radiating pain into the extremities indicative of disc involvement, and even chronic regional pain syndrome also called CRPS or RSD).

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, slip and fall incidents are the most common cause of fatal injuries among the elderly. Common causes of slip and fall injuries include:

  1. Wet or slippery floors
  2. Uneven or damaged flooring
  3. Loose carpeting or rugs
  4. Spilled liquids or food
  5. Icy or snowy walkways
  6. Poor lighting
  7. Obstructed pathways or cluttered floors
  8. Lack of handrails or guardrails on stairs

Experienced Austin Slip & Fall Injury Lawyers

At the Traub Law Office, P.C., our Austin slip & fall injury lawyers often help clients who have been harmed on another person or business premises. Our first concern is that our client receives appropriate medical treatment. Then we investigate the accident and determine if legal action should be taken.

  • Did bad lighting cause your accident? Bad lighting can cause a fall on stairs. Or it may prevent a person from seeing a hole or indentation in a walking surface.
  • Were you harmed because of poor security? If a building owner knew of previous assaults on the property and failed to improve the lighting or otherwise protect innocent people, you may have cause to make a premises liability claim for damages.
  • Was the property properly maintained? A poorly maintained property is an accident waiting to happen. Stairs that are worn, railings that are falling apart, and trees that are pushing up sidewalks are all potential dangers that can easily be avoided with a simple inspection. In one case, our client suffered a serious injury when she fell on a sidewalk that had been uprooted by a tree growing under it.
  • Were warnings adequate? If warning signs were put up, did they adequately put people on notice or was it possible to put better warnings up to prevent injuries? In one case, our client went through a door that led right into a pitch-black room with stairs going down. He fell and was severely injured. A locked door would have prevented his injuries.
  • Contact an Austin premises liability attorney. When a building owner knowingly allows a dangerous situation to exist, and when that dangerous situation causes an accident, our Austin slip & fall injury lawyer can help you determine your legal options.
