How do I sue for a slip and fall injury in Texas?

If you are looking to sue for a slip and fall injury, you will have to prove that the property owner in question knew, or should have reasonably known about the unsafe conditions present, failed to take action to fix them and that you were seriously injured and suffered significant financial damages as a result. To do so, you should retain the services of an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can gather and present all evidence needed to prove your personal injury claim. For example, our firm can work to uncover security camera footage of your accident, pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused you to slip and fall, witness statements corroborating your claim, police reports documenting the facts of the incident, and more. The bottom line is that if you have been injured, you need an attorney on your side. We are ready to fight for your right to a swift recovery.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in Texas?

Every state has a statute of limitations in place that dictates the amount of time a wrongly injured individual has to take legal action against a negligent party. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, you will, generally, have two years from the date of your accident to sue. If you wait any longer than two years, in most cases, you will be barred from suing. Our firm is ready to begin the claims process on your behalf today–all you have to do is ask.
