Slip and Fall Cases in San Antonio

Premises liability cases generally fall into two main categories. The first is what is commonly known as a slip and fall case. Slip and fall accidents (sometimes called "trip and fall" accidents) can occur in stores, malls, restaurants, parking lots, sidewalks, public and private places. They can also occur when businesses or homeowners fail to provide warnings on wet floors, when handrails are loose or when stairs are missing a step.

Inadequate Security

The other main area of premises liability concerns inadequate security. Inadequate security cases usually involve those situations where people are victims of crime on the business premises. Many of these claims arise at hotels, apartments or shopping centers.

Under Texas law, owners of these premises are responsible for the harm if the likelihood of criminal activity is reasonably foreseeable. These are often difficult cases for an injured person, and a complete investigation and thorough preparation is necessary for a successful result.

In negligent security cases, the main legal hurdle a claimant usually has to overcome is to prove that the premises owner had knowledge or constructive knowledge of a dangerous condition which caused the accident. This can be shown through the testimony of witnesses, crime reports, or other forms of evidence.

An immediate investigation is often the most important key to locating witnesses and evidence of the property owner's knowledge. Obtaining witnesses' names and photographs of the site before the premises owner has an opportunity to remedy and correct the dangerous condition is very important.
