When one enters a building, he or she has a reasonable expectation that it is safe. One may have entered a retail establishment to shop, a restaurant for the purpose of dining out, or a professional services building. Unfortunately, there are times when the owners or operators of such premises do not adequately care for the facility. The result is a hazardous environment. If another’s negligence has caused you to slip or trip, fall and become injured, then contact our Austin injury lawyers today. We service all of Travis County as well as other parts of Texas.
Austin attorneys holding property owners liable for hazardous situations
Property owners have a responsibility to maintain premises in a way so that it is safe. This responsibility includes:making sure that walkways are clear of tripping hazards, debris quickly cleaned up, and dangerous areas clearly marked as such. When this obligation is breached, and a fall is caused, then the victim may suffer serious injuries such as head trauma, spinal damage, or even paralysis. It is important to seek immediate medical treatment after such an accident. Victims should then contact an attorney so their interests are protected.
Our Austin attorneys handle cases where one has fallen due to a hazardous condition. Once retained, we will immediately contact the insurance company so that they will deal with us directly. We will obtain evidence related to the accident such as security footage, witness statements, etc. If settlement cannot be reached, and a lawsuit is filed, we will use the discovery process to gain information about the defendant’s maintenance practices so that liability may be shown. We will be in regular contact with you throughout the process and will ensure that you know what to expect as the case moves forward. Contact us today to speak with a lawyer. In addition to Austin, we also service Travis County cities which include Rollingwood, Round Rock, Elgin, Jonestown, Manor, Bee Cave, Lago Vista, Sunset Valley, Lakeway, Creedmoor, the Williamson County cities of Georgetown, Cedar Park, and Leander, as well as other areas of Texas.
