When going about your day, you may encounter dangerous conditions like uneven pavement, slippery floors, or broken stairs. Property owners are responsible for warning you about these hazards and fixing them to protect those who visit their premises. Unfortunately, many fail to practice this duty of care, which may cause serious injuries. If you slipped and fell due to a property owner’s negligence, you have the right to file a claim and seek financial compensation for your losses.
At Kuzmich Law Firm P.C., we strive to seek justice and hold liable parties accountable for their negligence. In our 28 years of experience, we have successfully secured millions of dollars for Texas personal injury victims by protecting their rights and fighting for the best possible outcome. When working with board-certified attorney Steve Kuzmich and our team, we’ll help retrieve the compensation you deserve while you focus on recovery.
When filing a slip-and-fall claim in Texas, one of the most essential but challenging aspects is proving fault. As the victim of a property owner’s negligence, you carry the burden of proof. This means you must provide evidence that demonstrates the following points:
We understand this may seem overwhelming, but you do not have to do it alone. Our dedicated lawyers can help you gather critical evidence, including medical records, witness testimony, and video footage. We do everything we can to build the strongest possible claim to present to insurance companies and ensure they treat you fairly.
In some cases insurance companies will try to blame you for your own injury by claiming that you were negligent. Sometimes multiple parties share a portion of the fault for an accident and the insurance company will try to blame someone else. This blame shifting is common in slip and fall injury claims and is sometimes called contributory negligence, modified comparative negligence, pure comparative negligence or assumption of the risk. With the evidence we help you collect and our advanced negotiation skills, our team fights tirelessly to prevent insurance companies from assigning you an unfair percentage and lowballing you.
While a slip-and-fall may seem like a minor accident, it may result in serious injuries that could have a physical, emotional, and financial impact on your life. These losses deserve recognition, so our knowledgeable lawyers work to calculate your claim’s worth accurately. Depending on the severity of your injuries and other details, you may recover economic and non-economic damages, which involve the following:
Economic damages are those with tangible monetary value. These often include the following:
We may use medical records, pay stubs, tax returns, and other receipts and invoices to calculate these damages and prove their value.
Non-economic damages are more subjective and refer to non-monetary losses, including the following:
Due to their abstract nature, these damages are often less straightforward to calculate. Therefore, we consider how your injuries have affected you emotionally, how long recovery will take, and if you suffered permanent damages so that you may receive accurate compensation for these losses.
The aftermath of a slip-and-fall accident can be overwhelming, and you may be unsure where to start in protecting your rights. Fortunately, you do not have to face the legal process alone. Our Kuzmich Law Firm P.C. lawyers allow you to focus on recovery by handling all aspects of your claim, including the following:
While you may attempt to handle your claim on your own, your recovery and other delays can make it difficult to meet Texas law’s two-year statute of limitations.
