Many people have the misconception that if you fall at a business or public place, the business or property owner is automatically liable for your injuries. In Texas, nothing could be farther from the truth.
Slip and fall cases are some of the most difficult cases to win in Texas. The Texas Supreme Court has created laws that favor property owners and businesses over injured Texans. In Texas, to have a good slip and fall case, and hold a property owner responsible, you must be able to show that the property owner, or one of their employees, knew about the dangerous condition, had a reasonable amount of time to remedy the condition, and notwithstanding the reasonable time that passed, they failed to remove it or warn you about it.
The Texas Supreme Court has interpreted the “reasonable time” element in favor of the business and property owners. Sadly, the Texas Supreme Court gives businesses the benefit of the doubt when it comes to what is considered a “reasonable amount of time, which often times makes holding businesses accountable very difficult.

Our team and investigators act quickly to protect and preserve important evidence, and we fight to ensure that victims get the compensation they deserve to put their lives back together.
To win a slip and fall case in Texas, you must prove that the property owner knew of the dangerous condition and failed to act on them. Some of the factors that will come into play are:
- Did the property owner have ample time to remedy or warn of the dangerous condition?
- Were any warnings provided adequate that a reasonable person would have been made aware of the risk?
- Did the property owner have a policy intact to regularly check for unsafe conditions?
- Was the accident partially caused by the victim’ own negligence?
- Did the inured party avoid warning signs posted?
