After A Slip-And-Fall Accident, Get Prompt Medical Attention And Legal Counsel
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that their homes or businesses are free from preventable hazards. When they fail in this responsibility and their negligence causes a guest to suffer an injury, they can be held accountable under Texas premises liability law. If you have been injured due to a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall on another person’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
To learn more about your legal options, you can contact the Holladay Law Firm, PLLC, for a free consultation. I am firm founder Jason Holladay, a former insurance defense attorney who now represents those who have been injured by the negligence of others.

From my offices in Spring and The Woodlands, I serve the surrounding areas of Texas.
Common Causes Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents
It is a part of life that things will spill or fall onto the floor, and property owners will not always be responsible when accidents occur. However, you may believe that your accident directly resulted from an act of negligence by a property owner or manager. Examples of hazardous conditions that may be due to negligence include:
- Unmarked wet floors, including entryways, hallways and aisles in stores
- Liquid spills and slippery items on the floor in a supermarket that sit for hours without being cleaned up
- Broken tiles
- Loose floorboards
- Worn rugs or carpeting
- Loose cords that are strewn across areas where people commonly walk
- Icy sidewalks and stairwells
It is in your best interests to consult with an attorney on whether you have a case after suffering injuries in a fall because of dangerous premises.
Proving Liability In A Slip-And-Fall Case
In order for your slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall case to be successful, there are certain elements that you will need to prove. As your attorney, I can help you obtain compensation by demonstrating the following:
- The property owner or an employee caused the hazardous condition.
- The property owner or employee knew or reasonably should have known about the condition but did nothing to correct it.
- The dangerous condition caused the injury.
These elements can be difficult to prove on your own without the help of someone who has experience handling these types of cases. Thanks to my experience, I know what it takes to investigate and build a strong case seeking maximum compensation for an injured person. You can focus on healing from your injuries and leave the rest to me.
