Injured In A Slip-And-Fall Accident? We Can Help.
When you are out grocery shopping or walking down a sidewalk, you expect to be relatively safe. But a misplaced rug, an icy step or a loose railing can change that in a moment. When you are injured on someone else’s property, you may suffer a severe injury. If the property owner was negligent, you may have a premises liability claim against them.
The attorneys at Vela & Del Fierro, PLLC, Attorneys at Law, have been helping clients with personal injury claims throughout Texas since 2005. Our mission is to provide the best client service possible, treating each client with integrity. We understand how important your case is to you and we appreciate your trust in us to see your case through.
Possible Slip-And-Fall Injuries
Everyone has fallen at some point, so at first glance, we may not think too much of it. Unfortunately, some types of dangerous conditions usually cause these falls and they can result in serious injuries. Common injuries we see with our clients include:
- Sprains and breaks: Falls can result in broken bones and sprains, especially if you try to break your fall
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI): TBIs result from head injuries. They vary from mild to severe and can leave permanent damage.
- Back and spinal cord injury: Falling on your back can create a range of injuries, from bruising to paralysis.
You should always see a doctor right away to assess your medical condition. Injuries are often worse than they first appear, especially injuries to the head and spine.
Understanding Premises Liability
Every property owner in Texas has a duty to keep their property reasonably safe for guests and visitors they invite on the property. If they know of a dangerous condition, they must either fix the problem or warn their guests of the danger. If they fail to do this and the dangerous condition causes an injury, they could be liable for any damages related to the injury.
Although slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall cases may be the most common type of premises liability claim, people are also injured by falling objects, dog bites, swimming pool accidents and inadequate security.
