What Types of Damages Can a Galveston Fall Accident Injury Lawyer Recover for Me?
Slip and fall accidents are often more costly than many realize. Most people have medical bills, missed time at work, and other expenses, even if their njuries are relatively minor. When injuries are more serious, the costs can quickly escalate.
The goal of a slip and fall accident case is to recover fair compensation, holding the negligent party responsible for their careless or reckless behavior. To this end, our Galveston slip and fall lawyers pursue money for the expenses and losses our clients incurred following their injuries. Your compensable damages could include:
- Medical bills and related expenses to date
- Future care and support costs
- Income losses
- Reduced future earning capacity
- Related costs with receipts, such as childcare costs
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages
When you work with us, you can count on your personal injury lawyer to identify your recoverable damages, document them, and assign a fair value to your losses.
We also represent families who have lost loved ones in fall accidents. Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71, survivors can recover compensation for a range of expenses and losses, including loss of consortium, funeral costs, and pain and suffering.
Will I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit to Recover Damages?
Whether we file a lawsuit depends on your circumstances, some of which are out of our control.
We often recover compensation in these cases by negotiating a fair payout with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. If the insurer refuses to settle, however, we may sue the property owner. This could result in us taking the case to trial and asking the jury for a court award. We will handle this process while you focus on treatment, rehabilitation, and healing.

Our Galveston Premises Liability Attorneys Build Compelling Slip and Fall Cases
Property owners in Texas are legally responsible for ensuring their structures, grounds, and other areas are free from unreasonable hazards. If there is a spill or leak, they must clean up the mess. If the carpet is torn or the pavement is broken, repairs are necessary. They must take action to prevent falls and other injury accidents when possible.
Sometimes, someone aside from the property owner might be responsible. This most commonly occurs when there is another party charged with the property’s maintenance and upkeep. This is usually a lessee, such as a store in a shopping mall that leases space from the property owner.
Our Galveston slip and fall accident attorneys know how to identify who is liable and pursue a case for compensation based on any type of fall injury. We advocate for injured claimants after suffering:
- Falls from elevated heights
- Stair falls
- Balcony or deck collapses

When Should I Contact a Slip and Fall Lawyer?
The sooner our Galveston slip and fall attorneys know about your injuries and potential case, the faster we can begin gathering evidence and building a claim. This is essential because critical evidence often disappears in the weeks and months after a fall occurs.
We need to identify eyewitnesses and get statements, preserve video of the fall, and take other steps to document what occurred. If we wait too long, this can be very difficult. The sooner we go to work investigating a fall, the better.
There is also a deadline for suing the liable party. Generally, victims have two years from the accident date to sue under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003.
