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.

Since we have won many cases, we are confident that we understand all of the laws that are in place that cover you. If we accept your case, we will fight for the justice you deserve. We will fight to get your medical bills paid, lost wages and future loss of earnings covered, as well as punitive dollars to ensure that your accident isn’t shared by anyone else. We will take the burden of legal documents, phone calls, and deadlines as we battle for your settlement. The Chris Mayo Law Firm wants to see you win because we will win too; we work on a contingency basis. You won’t owe us a single cent unless we win your case. We’ll keep you updated every step of the way.

Cases Chris Mayo Law Firm Handles

There are many ways in which a company, homeowner, or another property owner may be liable for your slip and fall accident and injuries. Everyone knows that some accidents will happen, but there is quite a bit of responsibility that property owners have on their premises to keep patrons and guests safe. While outright negligence makes for a better case, even property owners who were unaware of the hazards their property held should be held to a standard that should’ve kept victims like you safe. 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 listed above, you should get in touch with the attorneys at the Chris Mayo Law Firm to begin discussing your case. It’s of the utmost importance that you speak to an attorney quickly as it will be impossible to bring your personal injury case against the responsible party after two years in Texas. Call us at (210) 999-9999 as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you’ve been hurt by another party, there are many questions that both you and your attorney will have about the accident. Of course, you’d need to set up a consultation before an attorney at the Chris Mayo Law Firm can have their own questions answered, but we’ve provided a few frequently asked questions for your own convenience. Many of these questions may require far more specific answers than we can currently provide, so if your question isn’t sufficiently answered here, or you don’t even see your questions, please give us a call at (210) 999-9999 today.

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.

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; 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. There are a lot of factors that must be settled before we even get to the point of discussing the worth of your case, so call (210) 999-9999 to get started.
