Slip and fall injuries are, injuries that occur when a person slips and falls. The person usually slips on a foreign object or substance as a result of a dangerous condition, and then falls. Slip and fall accidents arising from the negligence of others can occur anywhere, from a public property such as a grocery store, shopping mall, office building, hotel or restaurant to a private property like your next door neighbor's house. Houston, Texas property owners and businesses have a duty to provide a safe environment.
In some instances, the owner of the premises may or may not be liable for the slip and fall injury. Although owners, possessors, and managers of real property have a duty to exercise reasonable care to maintain the premises to protect lawful visitors, should a condition of the premises be noticed by a customer or other visitor or should be readily apparent to a reasonable person, the property owner may avoid liability because the injured person has a duty to protect himself or herself against the injury.
The property owner may also avoid liability by establishing that the debris had so recently fallen on the area or that responsible parties did not have a reasonable opportunity to correct the condition and avoid the hazard before the person fell. The owner is entitled to a reasonable period of time in which to discover the dangerous condition and in which to correct it. Sometimes it takes a jury to make a determination of what constitutes a reasonable time and the facts will vary from case to case.
Unfortunately, numerous people are injured each year in Texas due to failure of the property owner to maintain a safe environment or fail to warn people about unsafe conditions. If you slipped and fell or tripped and fell on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation.
