Who Is Responsible For My Texas Slip and Fall Accident?
When you visit a friend’s home, government building, or even a store or restaurant in town, you shouldn’t have to worry about your safety. You should be able to focus on the task at hand without keeping one eye open for potential hazards. In Texas, property owners actually have a legal responsibility to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition.
Generally speaking, if you’re an invited guest or visiting property for the benefit of the owner, the owner must:
- Maintain their property so that it is free from hazardous conditions
- Regularly inspect the premises for dangerous conditions that you wouldn’t be able to identify easily
- Fix known hazards before they can pose a threat to visitors, and
- Warn you about known hazards if they haven’t been addressed.
In other words, property owners have to use care in maintaining their property so that you won’t slip and fall when you visit.
If they don’t, they might be considered negligent and liable for your injuries after a slip and fall.

What If I’m Blamed For My Slip and Fall Accident in Texas?
Don’t panic. Even if you do share some of the blame, you may still be able to seek money for your injuries. Texas is a modified comparative fault state. You can pursue compensation as long as you’re not more than 50 percent responsible for your slip and fall accident. In other words, someone else (or multiple people) must shoulder most of the blame for your fall and injuries.
Sharing fault will affect the amount of money you can get after a fall. Your damages will be reduced by the degree to which you share fault. If you’re allocated 20 percent of the blame, your damages would be reduced by 20 percent.
Remember, property owners and their insurance companies will do everything they can to limit or deny you the money you deserve. This includes trying to blame you for your fall. You deserve an attorney who knows how to protect you when these tactics are used.
The lawyers at Lorenz & Lorenz will carefully investigate your case, preserve evidence to support your case, and work hard to minimize your role in the accident. The less fault allocated to you, the more money you can potentially receive.
