Recovering Compensation for Your Carrollton Fall Accident Injuries
While most people who suffer fall injuries only experience a few bruises and abrasions, these accidents can be serious. We encourage you to see a doctor after a fall if you have any pain, swelling, or other signs of injury. In our experience with slip and fall cases, we have seen clients who suffered:
- Head injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken fingers, hands, arms, feet, and legs
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Knee and ankle injuries
- Hip fractures, especially common in seniors
The damages recoverable in these cases will depend greatly on the type of injuries and severity. A serious injury naturally calls for more medical care and time away from work, for example. Some commonly recoverable types of damages include:
- Current medical bills
- Future treatment and ongoing care expenses
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity if injuries prevent you from returning to work
- Damaged property replacement, such as glasses or smartphone
- Miscellaneous related expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Other intangible damages
Our attorneys also represent families who suffered the greatest loss of all because of a preventable hazard and fall injury. Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.002(b), family members whose loved one passed away from their negligence injuries can pursue wrongful death actions in civil court.
We represent those who lost loved ones in this type of tragic incident. We will review your options with you for free today.

Working With Our Carrollton Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer on Your Case
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we understand Texas’s premises liability laws, when they apply, and how to use them to hold a property owner legally responsible for the injuries our client suffered. Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 75.002, landowners and property holders (lessees or other occupants) have certain responsibilities to those who visit.
Property owners and occupants must keep their property, buildings, parking lots, yards, land, and other areas free from unreasonable hazards that could hurt others. This includes guests, customers, friends, neighbors, delivery personnel, and others on the property legally.
When there is an unreasonable hazard that the property owner is aware of (or should be aware of), and they do not address it, someone could get hurt. If this happens, the injured party may be able to file an insurance claim or lawsuit and hold the property owner liable. This is because negligence has occurred:
- The liable party had a duty to keep the property free from unreasonable hazards
- They failed to do so
- The unreasonable hazard caused an accident or incident
- The victim suffered financial and physical harm
What Types of Falls Can Support a Carrollton Fall Claim or Lawsuit?
Falls can occur in many ways, and a lot of them are due to unreasonable hazards that were allowed to exist and continue. This could include:
- A slip and fall, which often occur because of spills, leaks, or tracked water
- Falls related to slick flooring, poor cleaning methods, or too much wax
- Trips and falls, often because of items in the walkway, uneven flooring, or unmarked steps
- Falls from a height, including downstairs or off a deck, when a railing fails
Almost any type of fall that occurred because of an unreasonable hazard could support a negligence claim or lawsuit. Our team investigates what happened and gathers evidence to support your case. To this end, we often:
- Interview witnesses
- Review any video of the incident
- Identify our client’s damages, injuries, and losses
- Survey the scene
- Identify and analyze any other evidence available
In some cases, we even work with experts to help us better understand the client’s prognosis and future care needs. This is especially common when they suffered life-altering or catastrophic injuries. We may need to pursue damages on their behalf before they fully recover, or their doctor may believe they will live with lasting impairments for the rest of their life.
Our Clients Pay No Upfront Fees or Costs
Loncar Lyon Jenkins is a contingency fee personal injury firm. We have helped thousands of individuals and families recover compensation for injuries and damages with no upfront costs or fees. We never ask for a retainer or hourly fees.
Instead, our attorneys are paid a percentage of the financial recovery won in the case. We only charge fees if we secure compensation.
Timeline for Suing the Property Owner or Another Liable Party
In most personal injury cases in Texas, the victim has up to two years to begin a lawsuit, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. This countdown begins on the day of the accident in slip and fall injury cases and the day of death when a wrongful death occurs.
Meeting this deadline is imperative. Our team considers this a key component of protecting our clients’ rights and will ensure you meet this and any other deadlines when possible.
