Understanding Your Rights During A Slip-And-Fall Case
Overcoming the injuries can require more than icing a bruise and waiting for the swelling to go down. They could require expensive hospital stays and even surgery or rehabilitation in some cases. Something as simple as slipping and falling can actually cause quite a bit of damage to your body and your finances. Kastl Law, P.C., has represented clients throughout Texas to fight for their rights.
Determining Who Is Liable
It is important to determine who is liable for the injury. For someone else to be responsible for your injuries legally, the owner or employee of the premises where you received the accident needs to be the one who caused the spill or neglected repairs on the property. If the owner knows about dangerous surfaces but doesn’t do anything about them, they are liable for your injury as well. Of course, actually determining and proving liability is not easy, at least not for most people.
The best course of action for anyone injured in a slip-and-fall accident is to get in touch with an attorney. In some cases, the owner may be liable and in other cases, even though they might appear similar, the owner might not be at fault. Therefore, working with a slip-and-fall attorney who can examine the case from a legal perspective makes it easier to see if you actually have a case for claiming damages for the injury.
