In McAllen, when you slip and fall and are injured on another person’s property, you may have legal recourse to sue and collect damages for your injuries. There are countless ways you can be injured in a slip and fall accident, some of which may include:
- Slipping on wet pavement outdoors or wet tiled entryways in office buildings, malls, or other public gathering places.
- Slipping and falling due to poor lighting conditions in a public place, perhaps in an office complex or an apartment building
- Slipping in an area that is not properly maintained, such as if a railing is not secured right or an escalator malfunctions
The possibilities for a slip and fall accident are almost endless, but all hinge on a property being maintained in a substandard way by the owner. Together, these types of cases are known as premises liability lawsuits.
Does the Property Owner Know the Slip and Fall Condition Exists?
A property owner does have a legal obligation to maintain a property to a reasonable degree of safety. It does not matter if a person is a tenant, a patron of a store, or a guest on the property. Everyone enjoys protections under the law.
The one key to working with an attorney who will represent you in a slip and fall case is being able to prove that the property owner knew about the condition but did nothing to address the issue. This meets the standard for the property owner to be proven negligent.
