Winter in Texas: Addressing Slip and Fall Injuries

Posted on in Personal Injury

Nueces County personal injury attorneyMany northerners are under the impression that wintertime in Texas is balmy. Yet, even the most temperate of the state’s climates can dip into freezing temperatures, especially at night. The yo-yo effect of warming and freezing temperatures can be uniquely dangerous for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians, as it can lead to surface hazards such as black ice.

Texas property owners are generally required to take steps to mitigate the risk that any guests, visitors, and even trespassers on their property will suffer harm as a result of predictable hazardous conditions. Unfortunately, all too often, both residential and commercial property owners neglect this duty. When individuals are injured due to slip and fall scenarios as a result of this negligence, recklessness, or intentionally dangerous conduct, those injury victims may be empowered to sue the offending property owners for damages.

When Are Slip and Fall Injuries Legally Actionable?

Generally speaking, Texas property owners can be held liable for harm if a guest or visitor suffers physical injuries because the property owner failed to reasonably address the risk of harm caused by a hazardous condition on their property that the owner either knew about or should have known about.

Why Exploring Your Legal Options Is Urgent Business

There is a two-year statute of limitations placed on premises liability lawsuits in Texas. This means that you will only have two years from the date upon which you were injured to pursue compensation in civil court. If you try to file a lawsuit after this period of time, your case will be dismissed.

It is additionally important to explore your legal options quickly because “acting fast” will allow an attorney at our firm to start gathering evidence on your behalf and protecting your rights. Maximizing any compensation that an injury victim is owed often requires taking a truly proactive approach to the legal process.
