Beaumont Slip and Fall Lawyers

Did You Fall on Someone Else's Property?

A slip and fall can occur when a surface is slippery or uneven, and it can lead to broken bones, concussion, and other serious injuries. Not only do property owners have a duty to keep their property in a safe condition, but they must warn visitors of any potential hazards.

In the event of a slip and fall accident, the property owner may be held liable for the victim's injuries.

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Beaumont slip and fall accident lawyers at Shelander Law Offices can evaluate your case and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Responsibilities of Property Owners in Texas

Slip and fall accidents are all too common, and property owners have a legal responsibility to take measures to prevent them. This is known as the duty of care. Texas law categorizes visitors into three groups:

  • Invitees
  • Licensees
  • Trespassers

Property owners owe the highest duty of care to invitees, who are people who have been invited onto the property for business or other reasons. This includes customers at a store or patients at a hospital.

Licensees are people who have been granted permission to be on the property, such as social guests or delivery people. Trespassers are people who are on the property without permission.

Property owners generally do not owe a duty of care to trespassers, with a few exceptions. If you or someone you know has suffered injuries from an unsafe property, contact us today for a consultation to discuss the property owner’s liability.
