Slip & Fall Statute of Limitations Laws
A statute of limitations governs the amount of time you have to bring a court case. Slip-and-fall injuries in Texas are governed by a two-year statute of limitations. You may sue for personal injury or property damages within two years of your slip-and-fall accident. It’s vital to allow yourself plenty of time to go to court, even if you plan on settling with the property owner. The best course of action is to hire an experienced attorney to represent you, so you don’t run out of time.
Slip & Fall Comparative Negligence Laws in Texas
You must be able to prove liability to collect damages from a slip-and-fall accident. We all have an obligation to watch where we are going, and not every potential hazard can be cleared away the moment it happens. To establish liability, it must be proven that the owner of the premises or one of their employees directly caused the hazardous situation, knew about the hazard, and chose to do nothing about it, or should have anticipated the hazard-based upon reasoning.
Texas law uses modified comparative negligence, meaning your awarded damages will be reduced by the percentage you are determined to be at fault. The law can be challenging to navigate through, but The Bonner Law Firm is here to simplify the matter for you and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
