Dallas Slip and Fall Lawyers
Premises Liability Laws in Texas
In Texas, public and private property owners must take certain measures to prevent accidents and injuries from occurring on their properties. Specifically, they must conduct routine property maintenance and remove, repair, or warn of dangerous conditions or hazards that could cause “foreseeable” injury. Unfortunately, property owners often fail to uphold this duty of care. This leads to serious accidents, including slip and falls, as well as life-changing injuries and, in the worst cases, death.
If you were injured after slipping and falling, or if your loved one died due to injuries sustained in a serious fall, and you believe the property owner may be legally responsible, reach out to Mike Slocumb Law Firm. Our Dallas slip and fall lawyers can help you understand your legal rights and options under Texas premises liability laws. We are known for our aggressive approach, as well as our proven track record of successfully recovering more than half a billion dollars in compensation for our clients.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents?
It’s a relatively common misconception that most slips, trips, and falls result from the injured party’s own negligence. In fact, the vast majority of these accidents are not caused by the victim’s clumsiness but, rather, the negligence of property owners who fail to conduct adequate property maintenance.
Specifically, some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Uneven flooring
- Ripped carpeting or rugs
- Loose floor mats
- Unmarked steps
- Defective stairs and stairwells
- Missing handrails
- Poor lighting
- Lack of proper warning signs
- Potholes, asphalt cracks, and other tripping hazards
If one of these or another type of hazard caused your slip and fall accident, you could have a personal injury case against the property owner. In addition to proving how the dangerous condition caused the accident, you will also need to prove that you were lawfully on the property when the accident occurred, meaning you weren’t trespassing at the time. Additionally, you’ll need to prove how your injuries and damages were the result of the incident, and not caused by a preexisting condition or other underlying factors.
Our attorneys know how to thoroughly investigate slips, trips, and falls. We work with various industry experts to identify the cause of the incident, as well as the ways in which the property owner’s negligence contributed to our clients’ injuries. Armed with this information, we build powerful cases and fight for maximum compensation, even when that means taking cases to court.

The overall value of your slip, trip, and fall case depends on many different factors, such as the severity of your injuries, the cost of your medical expenses, how long you were out of work, and more. Without knowing these and other specific details of your case, it is impossible to determine exactly how much your slip and fall claim might be worth.
That being said, our attorneys frequently help injured victims recover compensation for certain types of damages. These include (but are not limited to):
- Past, current, and future medical care costs
- Past, current, and future pain and suffering
- Past, current, and future lost income/wages
- Lost or diminished earning capacity
- Lost or diminished quality/enjoyment of life
