Some Falls Are Simple Mishaps,
but Many Are Someone Else’s Fault
Trips and falls or slips and falls can happen anytime, anywhere, to anyone. Some falls are simple mishaps caused by a loss of balance, distraction, or a misstep. But many people needlessly suffer fall injuries because of conditions and hazards that property owners and managers should have known about and should have fixed to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition for customers or guests.
A grocery store doesn’t clean up a spill on Aisle 5; an apartment building stairway has poor lighting, unsteady stairs, or missing handrails; a restaurant fails to pick up dropped napkins, utensils, or other objects – these are just a few examples of how someone else’s negligence and disregard for others’ safety can cause deadly falls.
When someone gets seriously hurt or dies because a business owner, homeowner, or property manager does not use the necessary care to maintain the property or warn others about potential hazards, the Austin slip and fall lawyers at Sandoval James stand ready to hold the responsible parties to account.
Lives should not be thrown into turmoil and families shouldn’t have to grieve the death of a loved one because of someone else’s carelessness or neglect. It’s unfair and unjust. We work tirelessly to make things right, fighting to get our clients the maximum amount of compensation available for their slip and fall or trip and fall injuries and losses.
