Slip and Falls/Premises Liability

When businesses such as grocery stores, amusement parks, restaurants and even apartment complexes open their doors for business, those businesses have a duty to make sure their properties are safe for customers and tenants. The failure to remove water, oil spots and other dangerous conditions from properties that results in injury to customers may subject the businesses to liability. Homeowners may also be subjected to liability when their pets injure neighbors and guests. The Washington Firm has years of experience handling premises liability suits and has recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for clients injured due to the negligence of property owners. If you have been injured as a result of the negligence of a property owner or business owner, call The Washington Firm today.

While slip and fall cases may seem rather straight forward, they are actually amongst the toughest cases to handle in the state of Texas. They are so difficult that many lawyers will not accept slip and fall cases even when there has been a serious injury.  Various court rulings and statutes actually give large corporations more protection than the average citizen. Time constraints and constructive notice requirements imposed by Texas law may substantially reduce or eliminate your recovery if you don’t hire the right lawyers. At The Washington Firm, we have significant experience dealing with slip and fall cases and have succeeded in obtaining financial compensation for our clients from some of the largest retail corporations in America.
