You Generally Have Two Years to File Your Lawsuit in Texas
Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003, you generally have two years from the date of your accident to take your case to court. This also applies if you are filing a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a late loved one.
While our lawyers resolve most injury claims through insurance settlements, you want to leave your options open. If the deadline expires in your case, you risk losing the chance to seek damages. Don’t let that happen to you. Instead, consider partnering with our injury firm serving Fort Worth.

We Can Determine the Cause of Your Slip and Fall Accident
Here’s the thing: slip and fall accidents aren’t “accidents.” Each incident has a cause, many of which are avoidable. After conducting our investigation, we may find that one or more of the following factors contributed to your injuries:
- Slippery surfaces, like newly-waxed floors or mopped areas
- Torn rugs or carpeting
- Loose or unanchored tiles
- Cracked floorboards
- Garbage in walkways
- Overgrown branches and foliage
We Can Determine Who’s Responsible for Your Losses
To collect the compensation you are entitled to in Fort Worth, your slip and fall legal team must identify the responsible party (or parties) and hold them liable. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our lawyers can investigate your accident to determine who could be liable for your injuries.
The responsible parties for your slip and fall accident may include:
A Property Owner
Property owners in Texas must keep their premises safe for guests and free of hazardous conditions that might lead to accidents. If a dangerous situation emerges, the owner must either remedy the hazard or notify guests of its presence.
The Property Manager
Sometimes, a property owner will not directly manage their property but instead hire a manager to do so for them. Similar to what we listed above, if a property manager did not take measures to promote visitor safety and their negligence resulted in your injuries, you could hold them financially liable.
Let’s say that you slipped and fell at a chain grocery store. In this situation, you would pursue not the property owner or manager but the corporation itself. These businesses have teams of lawyers at the ready to settle your claim or dispute your allegations. This is where our attorneys can step in and handle your legal matters.
We Can Seek These Damages for Your Slip and Fall Accident in Tarrant County
Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. The injuries in these accidents can be debilitating and permanent.
If someone else’s negligence caused or contributed to your slip and fall accident in Fort Worth, then they, not you, should pay for your damages. In Texas, injured victims can pursue both economic and non-economic damages.
Some examples include:
Current and Future Medical Bills
We will pursue the full cost of your injury-related medical bills. That goes for the expenses you have already incurred and those you might incur in the future.
Lost Earnings From Work
If your Fort Worth accident injury forced you to miss work, your slip and fall accident lawyer can recover compensation to make up for your lost paychecks. Compensation may also account for your lost tips, commissions, bonuses, and benefits.
Reduced Future Earning Capacity
A severe slip and fall injury can lead to long-term physical impediments that impede your ability to work. We can help you recover compensation to make up for your reduced earning capacity.
Pain and Suffering and Inconvenience
A fall, along with the ensuing recovery process, can cause a lot of physical pain. The far-reaching effects of a fall can also lead to emotional and psychological distress. We help you recover damages for the physical and emotional suffering your injury caused.
Wrongful Death-Related Losses
If you are a qualifying representative filing a wrongful death claim for a late loved one, you could recover the cost of many damages associated with their passing. This could include their end-of-life medical bills, lost income, loss of consortium, and the cost of their funeral.
