Claiming Compensation for Slip and Fall Injuries

If you have been injured in a slip and fall incident on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation from the property owner under an area of personal injury law called premises liability.

Under Texas law, property owners who invite others onto their property have a legal responsibility to remove dangerous conditions or warn against them.

The property owner’s exact responsibilities may depend on the specific circumstances of your incident. Business owners such as supermarkets and malls are among those responsible for avoiding slip and fall accidents.

We can help you sort out what your rights are and what you can do to assert those rights and claim compensation for your injuries. Most businesses and homeowners are covered by insurance, and attorney Raúl A. Guajardo has experience negotiating with insurance companies and, if necessary, going up against them in court.

Helping People Injured Due to Inadequate Security

Premises liability covers not only slip and fall cases and similar accidents, but also assaults and other attacks caused by lack of adequate security. If you’ve been assaulted at a store, mall, apartment complex, hotel or another facility that did not have any security protections or had inadequate security, you may be entitled to compensation.
