Slip and Fall Accidents
People who own businesses such as fast food resturants, grocery stores, and other places that are open to the public for business purposes have the duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition so as not to cause injury to their visitors and customers. Under Texas law, these duties obligate the property owner to inspect the premises to ensure that there are no hazards or defects present.
All to often people sustain what is called a slip and fall injury because the business did not inspect the property for hazards or defects, failed to maintain proper lighting, or failed to provide notice to the customer of a hazardous condition, such as a wet or slippery substance on the floor. If you have been injured because of some hazard or defect on the property of a business or an individual, it is imperative that you notify the property owner or manager of your accident immediately after it has occurred. If have a camera, you should also photograph the area where the accident occurred in order to document the condition of the the premises that caused your injury. And, of coarse seek medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible.
