SLIP & FALL INJURIES

and oilfield deaths and hurt on oil rigs and in Odessa, Texas Pecos Andrews Hobbs

Slip and falls happen every day in the West Texas, Midland-Odessa, and Permian Basin.  Fortunately, the first responders are specially trained to us.  But, the injuries are often painful and can be life-altering.  The help of an attorney based in Midland-Odessa can get assistance to you and your family right away, working to get you the best medical care, documenting your injuries, and securing the accident scene before critical evidence gets "lost."

 

When you enter a typical store or place of business, you should expect the business to keep the property safe.  Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

If a business opens its doors to the public, it has a duty to make sure it keeps its property reasonably safe.  Some common causes of slip, trip, and falls include:

  • Wet floors

  • Spilled liquids

  • Inadequate or missing entryway mats

  • Pallets or items in aisles

  • Electrical or phone cords across walkway

  • Large cracks in the sidewalk

  • Uneven bricks or pavers

  • Potholes in crosswalks

  • Unmarked and unexpected steps

  • Broken or uneven stairs

  • Broken or missing handrails

  • Carpet that is frayed or has holes

  • Bad lighting

And many other hidden hazards you don’t notice until it is too late.   Every slip and fall is different.  But, when you're hurt, the only slip and fall that matters is yours.

Liability depends a great deal on the facts.  Generally, you have a better chance at compensation if your accident occurred in a store, on your landlord’s property, or at some place of business.  An important factor will be if the property owner or his employees knew, or should have known, about the hazard.  If they knew about the hazard, then they were on notice that a slip or trip might occur.  Equally important is if you knew about the hazard before you fell.  As a common example, a wet floor sign in the area may prevent compensation because it warns customers the area is dangerous.

What if you were warned about a dangerous condition?  For example, if warning signs told you that a stairway was broken, but you decide to walk on it anyway, you probably can’t recover for your injuries if you fall.  But, if a landowner knows his stairs are broken, but allows his guests to walk on them anyway, he will be responsible for their injuries if the stairs collapse.  As you can see, the law places great importance on whether the landowner or his employees knew more about the hazard than the victim.

The law in Texas tends to favor the business-owner over the victim.  A slip and fall injury typically results in very specific physical injuries which may be different from your typical personal injury case.  Slip and fall and other premises liability cases require a detailed analysis of the facts by a skilled personal injury lawyer.  These cases also require important evidence to be collected and preserved immediately after the fall.  The insurance companies who insure the negligent businesses often take advantage of victims who are not represented by slip and fall trial lawyers.
