Slip And Fall Accidents

A Slip and Fall Accident Attorney in Houston to Defend Your Rights in a Premises Liability Case

A slip and fall is a personal injury term that describes when a person slips, trips or falls and is injured on another person’s property. In the greater metropolitan Houston area, we have seen people injured while frequenting businesses because of someone else’s negligence. Because these accidents usually happen on another person’s property, they’re also considered to be premises liability claims. Whoever owns or is responsible for the premises is legally responsible for your injury.

Premises can include restaurants, hardware stores, supermarkets, office buildings, department stores, other people’s homes, and much more.

  • Negligent care of a sidewalk or publicly owned area, such as a pothole in the ground

When The Elderly Slip And Fall

The elderly are especially susceptible to broken bone injuries when they fall. Such an injury is often the factor that forces an older person to move to a nursing home or assisted living center.

A slip and fall injury is not uncommon in a nursing home. An unsupervised patient or resident who requires assistance to walk may fall when trying to move on their own, possibly amounting to professional negligence.
