San Antonio Slip and Fall Attorneys
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere. While most companies try to make their businesses as safe as possible because they understand that allowing conditions that increase the odds of you slipping could get them sued, it still happens every day. Many people don’t think twice about these kinds of accidents, but they can lead to terrible injuries or even death.
The Chris Mayo Law Firm was established over ten years ago and has diligently been serving the San Antonio community ever since. Native San Antonio resident and firm founder Chris Mayo spent years working closely with his neighbors before he went to law school, stiving to protect his ideals of community support.
If you are a victim of a slip and fall in or around San Antonio, you need to hire the Chris Mayo Law Firm to represent you. Hiring an attorney is the best way to get the compensation you need to recover from your slip and fall injuries; you might even be awarded punitive damages on your case if there was a hazard where you fell that they didn’t even try to fix. You need to call Chris Mayo Law Firm and tell us about your accident. We have helped many people, our neighbors, with our experience as personal injury lawyers in Texas.
Do I need an attorney?
In Texas, there are several steps to winning slip and fall cases. Accidents that happen on someone else’s property are labeled Premises Liability. These are some of the hardest to prove as the owner of the facility had to know that there was an issue but not have done anything about it. This is only one aspect of the difficult claims process when it comes to slip and fall accidents, and the time from start to finish can eat into the time you should be spending to simply get better or take care of your family. Leaving your case in the hands of an attorney can do wonders for helping you have the peace of mind necessary to recover from such an accident.
We have settled slip and fall cases and understand the complicated laws surrounding them. We work with inspectors, who have worked many cases, perhaps like yours. You can’t sue by yourself and win against big companies and their insurance companies. Insurance companies have lawyers on staff who might go after you and make it look like you are to blame. They sometimes fight dirty and get you to sign documents that you really shouldn’t. We know their tricks. We love getting settlements from them that actually help you feel like less of a victim of their carelessness. You do need an attorney if you are injured, an attorney that is with you to win.

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do if I fell at a place of business?
Our perfect case would include you being taken by ambulance to the hospital, great photos of the slip scene, and witnesses that are not employees of the company where the fall happened. If we could tell our clients one thing before any accidents, it would be to not talk to any insurance company or adjuster or give them any kind of a statement. Insurance companies are not only experts at saving their companies thousands of dollars, but they’re also experienced in twisting a victim’s words against them. So always remember to call us first, in any kind of accident. The sooner is always the better. As more time goes on, facts are subject to change and people are liable to change their stories. We, unfortunately, can’t go back in time to completely prevent the accident from ever happening, but hopefully, we can advise you moving forward so you’re focused on taking care of yourself instead of worrying about how an insurance company may be working to keep you from receiving the compensation you need.
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 it was in front of a Walmart, where they should know that people are carrying items and can’t see the pavement below their packages, they may be responsible for the maintenance of their sidewalks. If you’re on city property or in a neighborhood, then the municipal office in charge of the area may be responsible. Regardless, there must be a money source, like an insurance company to pay for your injuries. Insurance companies do a few things really well, like take your money and dole it out slowly. The bigger the case, the harder that they fight to keep it. That is why you need a strong fighter to stand up to insurance companies.
