San Antonio Slip & Fall Attorney
Let Our Firm Fight for You
If you have been hurt in an accident in a restaurant, shop, or office building or if you have been hurt on a residential property, you will need to be able to prove that the owner or manager should be held liable for the accident. It is critical that you have a legal team on your side that has handled these specific claims in the past and has successfully recovered compensation for their clients. An attorney can make sure that the proper evidence is collected and analyzed, eyewitnesses are interviewed, and all of the facts of your case are prepared and ready to present in order to secure the compensation you need.
Our team is ready to fight for the compensation you need for your slip and fall claim. We will fight to get your medical bills paid and recover compensation for lost wages and future loss of earnings, as well as punitive actions for pain, suffering, and mental anguish, if necessary. Our track record of successful verdicts and settlements speaks to our commitment and dedication to our clients. We will not rest until you get the financial compensation you are owed to be able to take care of yourself and your family.

Slip & Fall Cases We Handle
While outright negligence makes for a more straightforward claim, even property owners who were unaware of the hazards on their property may be responsible for your injuries.
Here are a few of the hazardous conditions that can lead to slip and fall accidents:
- Lack of protective floor covering
- Failure to clean spills
- Damaged or broken stairways
- Debris in walkways
- Lack of appropriate lighting
This is not a complete list of every hazard a property may have that could lead to a dangerous or even deadly slip and fall accident. Even if you don’t see your situation on this list, you should contact us to begin discussing your case. Time is of the essence with these types of claims, as it will be impossible to bring your personal injury case against the responsible party after two years in Texas.
Frequently Asked Questions about Slip & Fall Accidents
Many of these questions require specific answers than we can currently provide, so if your question isn’t answered here, we are happy to discuss your case with you during a free consultation.
What should I do if I fell at a place of business?
If you slipped or tripped and injured yourself in a place of business, the first thing you should do is to seek medical attention for your injuries. The most important thing to consider is your health. If possible, take photos of the scene and the hazard that caused your fall. This evidence will come in handy if you have to file an injury claim at a later date.
If there were witnesses to the accident, get the contact information and a statement from anyone who saw what happened. You will also want to alert the property owner of the accident about any injuries you’ve suffered. We don’t recommend immediately threatening a lawsuit, but they should be made aware of the accident so that it can be documented on their end.
I tripped on a broken concrete sidewalk; do I have a case?
It completely depends on where this sidewalk is located. Were there any hazard signs? Was this at night? We need to understand how the injury occurred before we can assess the case. If you were at your job site, you might have a worker’s compensation case. If you’re on city property or in a neighborhood, then the municipal office in charge of the area may be responsible.
How much am I going to receive in compensation?
Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as there are several incredibly important factors we need to settle before we can tell you exactly how much money your case may be worth. Where did the accident take place? What was the hazard? How much money did you lose in the duration of the accident and recovery?
There are several damages that we’ll look into receiving, including hospital bills and the cost of future hospital visits or therapy. We will also consider money lost from time off work, which may include future lost wages if you can’t return to work, and even non-economic damages, like pain or suffering.
