    We offer free consults, where we will listen and get the facts about how you were injured. We will ensure that you receive the necessary medical care, and will start gathering evidence. When you hire us, everything we do will be to hold the negligent party accountable and recover what you deserve for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

  • You Pay Nothing Upfront

    At Anderson Injury Lawyers, there are no costs upfront because we work on a contingency basis. When you work with us in a slip and fall case, you won’t owe us anything until we secure compensation.

  • We’ll Set You Up with Trustworthy Slip & Fall Doctors

    If you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall accident you shouldn’t have to suffer while the case is pending. We’ll act right away to find a doctor who will give you the level of care you need when you need it. All payment is deferred until after we’ve won, and we’ll make sure you see a doctor familiar with slip and falls.

  • We’ll Investigate the Incident Right Away

    If we're going to convince an insurance company or court to pay what’s right after a slip and fall, words probably won’t be sufficient. We'll need to prove that another party neglected their duty to you. Since memories fade and evidence like video surveillance, police reports, and medical records tend to disappear, immediate action is always important. That’s why we make a thorough investigation a priority.

  • We’ll Fight the Insurance Company

    Insurance providers and large companies are known for making it hard to hold those they represent accountable. We have a deep understanding of Texas premises liability law, how to demonstrate a property owner’s obligations, and what it takes to negotiate on your behalf. If those who caused you harm refuse to take responsibility, we are also not afraid to take them to court.

Understanding Slip and Falls

Slip and fall cases encompass accidents in which you lose your footing and balance on someone else’s property, and you are injured in the resulting fall. In many slip and fall accidents, the fall is to the ground you were walking on. This is enough to cause serious injuries, like broken bones or a traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, a slip, trip, or stumble can cause a person to fall from a height, such as down a flight of stairs or from a balcony. These typically lead to more significant injuries, disabilities, and fatalities.

Regardless of the circumstances, do not hesitate to reach out to our experienced Dallas slip & fall lawyers at Anderson Injury Lawyers. We are well-versed in Texas’ premises liability law, and we will analyze your case carefully to determine your legal rights and options.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

We recommend you call our slip and fall attorneys right away if you were injured in a fall due to:

  • Standing water
  • Spilled beverages or foodv
  • Foreign substances on the ground
  • Recently mopped or waxed floors
  • Debris, objects, or garbage on the ground
  • Poorly maintained staircases, escalators, or ramps
  • Missing or uneven stairs
  • Unstable flooring
  • Loose or ripped carpet
  • Poorly lit walkways or stairwells

At Anderson Injury Lawyers, we handle slip and fall claims that arise from all sorts of property conditions and hazards. Whether you slipped on a puddle of water inside a business, or you tripped down uneven and poorly lit stairs at an acquaintance’s home, call us.

The first way in which we can help is by thoroughly investigating the area of the property in which you fell. We will identify the dangerous conditions on the property.

Slip and Fall Compensation & Liability

Texas premises liability law is complicated, and the owner or tenant of the property where you were hurt may or may not be liable for your injuries.

Whether or not the owner or tenant is liable depends on why you were on the property, their duty of care to you, and whether the presence of the hazard violated that duty of care. At Anderson Injury Lawyers, a Dallas slip & fall lawyer will analyze why you were on the property, and determine whether the law views you as an invitee, licensee, or trespasser.

Invitees are individuals on a business’s property for a mutual benefit. If you are an invitee, you are owed the highest duty of care. The property owners are responsible for ensuring the property is safe and warning you against unreasonably dangerous and concealed conditions that the owner is or should be aware of.

If you are a licensee, you are on another person’s property for your own benefit. You are owed the second highest duty of care. The property owner should keep the property safe and warn you about unreasonable dangers they know of.

You would be considered a trespasser if you were on someone’s property without permission. In this situation, the property owes you a low duty of care and only must not recklessly or intentionally cause you harm.

Our slip and fall attorneys at Anderson Injury Lawyers will carefully review the hazard that caused you harm and determine if the evidence shows the property owner violated their legal duty. If the owner did not maintain the property as they should for you and other guests, then you can pursue compensation through an insurance claim or lawsuit.

Pursuing Slip and Fall Case Payouts

If you fell after slipping, tripping, or stumbling on someone else’s property, you may now be recovering from serious injuries. You may be worried about the bills that have started to arrive or will arrive soon. Worse yet, you may have had to take time away from work, which means you are facing bills while receiving less income.

For many families, this is a recipe for disaster. The bills could quickly deplete your savings. To avoid this outcome, it is best to work with a lawyer and pursue compensation for your slip and fall injuries.

There are two ways to pursue a slip and fall payout:

Slip and Fall Insurance Settlements

The first is to work with the property owner’s insurance company. If you fell in someone’s home, their rental or mortgage insurance may cover your bodily injuries. If you fell in a business, it likely has liability insurance to cover your injuries.

Insurance settlements are common resolutions to slip and fall cases. However, you should not work with an insurer alone. The insurance company adjusters and employees know the law and the system better than you. They can use this upper hand to try and get you to accept a lower settlement than you deserve.

You should have a Dallas slip & fall lawyer on your side to ensure you know what your case is worth and to negotiate for the maximum payout possible.

Slip and Fall Lawsuits

Your other option, which is often used in conjunction with settlement negotiations, is to file a slip and fall lawsuit. By filing a lawsuit against the property owner, manager, or tenant, you demonstrate that you take your claim seriously. You also provide a financial incentive for the insurer to settle. Many insurers prefer to settle than pay for lengthy litigation.

However, a lawsuit is also important aside from possible settlement negotiations. If the property owner does not have insurance, if the insurer denies your claim, or if the policy limit is below the value of your claim, then you may wish to take your claim to trial. By filing a lawsuit, you have the opportunity to ask a judge or jury to hold the property owner liable and award you the compensation you deserve.

Let Our Dallas Slip & Fall Lawyers Help You

After you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall, you may assume the property owner is liable. Or, you may assume the accident was your own fault, and the owner does not owe you anything. Both of these assumptions can be dangerous without speaking to a knowledgeable, skilled, and experienced lawyer first. Call Anderson Injury Lawyers at (214) 327-8000 to schedule a free consultation.
