Slip and Fall Attorney Represents Injury Victims
Texas law firm helps those hurt while on the property of another
Texas law imposes upon businesses an obligation to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business’s premises. If a business fails to exercise the legally required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Merrill & Associates, I employ a practical, professional approach to help my clients seek full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
Legal duty of care
In order for a business to be found responsible for your accident, evidence must be shown to prove that a dangerous condition on the business premises caused your injury and that at least one of the following is true:
- The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
Depending on state law, a property owner or manager may owe a different standard of care to different classes of visitors such as business visitors or social guests. I help you understand your chances of recovery based on the specific facts of your case.
I consult with knowledgeable and respected experts while preparing your case. With the assistance of physicians, chiropractors and forensics engineers, I can pursue the best possible settlements. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jurors can understand the cause of the accident and the extent of your injuries.
Timely filing of your claim
By immediately consulting an attorney, you can help ensure the collection of valuable evidence. Merrill & Associates thoroughly investigates every case and often visits the premises where the accident occurred to gather crucial evidence, photograph the accident scene and interview witnesses. With significant delay, you could forfeit your right to file a claim by missing the deadline set by Texas law.
