Dealing with Slip & Falls- Personal Lawyer in Houston

A slip & fall accident, sometimes also referred to as a trip and fall accident, can occur anywhere. However, when you are involved in an accident on someone else’s premises where some form of negligence caused the accident, you may be able to pursue a claim for damages. Slip and fall accidents can occur due to a failure on the part of the premises owner to take proper precautions in maintaining the premises as expected. Spills on the floor, failure to put up “wet floor” signs, poorly maintained parking lots can all lead to slip or trip and falls. If you have been seriously injured in such an accident, consult with a Personal Lawyer in Houston from the Malaise Law Firm in Houston to discuss what options you have in pursuing compensation for your injuries.

Slip and fall accidents can result in injuries such as fractures, neck and back injuries, hip injuries, and head injuries. These can lead to requiring extensive medical treatment, physical therapy and even disability.
