Tyler Slip and Fall Attorneys Litigate Injury Claims
Bringing claims for accident victims and defending property owners in Texas
Texas law imposes upon businesses an obligation to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business premises. If a business fails to exercise reasonable care and a patron or visitor is injured as a result, the victims may be entitled to compensation for any injuries. Homeowners have a similar duty to make their grounds safe for guests and licensees, such as delivery persons, who enter the property. At Derryberry Zips Wade Lawhorn, PLLC, our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to ensure that our clients obtain a fair resolution in slip and fall cases.
Getting Texas slip and fall victims justice
For a slip and fall victim to obtain compensation, evidence must prove that a dangerous condition on the premises caused the injury and that at least one of the following is true:
- The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
We help injury victims assemble the evidence to prove these elements and get the recovery they deserve. Conversely, we help property owners establish facts that disprove liability, such as these:
- There was no dangerous condition on the premises.
- The dangerous condition on the premises was so obvious that a reasonable person would have recognized the danger and avoided it.
- The owner or an employee’s treatment of the dangerous condition was reasonable.
Because we understand both sides of slip and fall cases, our attorneys deliver professional representation that covers every element of the case.
