Slips and Falls

Helping Fall Injury Clients Seek Compensation
While slips and falls are often played for laughs in fiction, there’s nothing funny about a fall injury in real life. As one of the most common causes of serious injuries among U.S. adults – especially senior citizens – falls can have lifelong consequences. If you are worried about how a fall on someone else’s property has already impacted your life and will affect your finances, you should speak with an experienced attorney for guidance.
We at the Law Office of Shane McClelland can offer the legal support you require during this difficult time. Our experienced slip and fall lawyer in Katy has the knowledge and skill to help you pursue the maximum possible recovery for what happened to you. If someone else’s property was in a condition that made your fall occur, you can hold them accountable whether they’re a public or private entity.

When Are Property Owners Responsible for Fall Injuries?
Property owners owe a duty of care to those who they invite onto their properties or those who have business being on their properties. If you were a guest at a social gathering or conducting business on someone else’s property when the accident occurred, chances are the property owner breached the duty of care owed to you on their land.
Common causes of slip-and-fall accidents on any property include these:
- Wet floors without proper warning signage
- Presence of snow or ice
- Uneven pavement
- Loose or broken handrailing
- Lack of sufficient lighting
Even trespassers are owed a duty of care. Any landowner who creates conditions purposely designed to harm trespassers may be liable for any injuries a trespasser sustains; if the trespasser is a minor, then the landowner may be liable under any circumstance.
Helping Our Clients Recover Compensation
Slip and fall injuries can happen anywhere, including someone else’s home, on the sidewalk, in stores, offices, or other businesses. They can also occur at public places such as parks, playgrounds, or sporting venues. Injuries from slips and falls can range from minor scrapes and bruises to serious head trauma, and the cost of medical care and lost wages while recovering can cause serious financial harm.
Our Katy slip and fall accident attorney can help you seek the compensation you need after becoming injured from a fall. The Law Office of Shane McClelland offers each potential client a free initial consultation to tell us about their experience and learn more about how our firm can help them pursue compensation.
