We Investigate Your Slip and Fall Accident Case
Every injury case requires solid evidence, and this is also true of slip and fall accidents. To have an actionable injury claim, we will need to show that someone else’s negligence led to your injuries.
According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 75.002, you could hold property owners accountable for unsafe conditions on their premises. In a premises liability case, you must demonstrate that because the property owner did not maintain a safe premises, you were injured.
Our injury lawyers will work to prove that:
- The property owner had an obligation to maintain a reasonably safe area.
- They breached this duty of care by allowing hazards to exist on the property or fail to warn others of the danger.
- Their negligence was the direct cause of your fall and injuries.
- Your injuries led to damages.
To prove these elements, we can use information from a variety of sources, including witness statements, security camera footage, past violations on the premises, and accident reports. Once we have compelling evidence, we will issue our demand letter to the liable party.

Loncar Lyon Jenkins Can Work with the Insurance Company
The back-and-forth conversations with an insurance company can be time-consuming and draining. We will deal with this entire process on your behalf.
We will Handle Any Necessary Communication for You
There are many reasons why it could be advantageous to leave all communications with the insurance company to us. Not only can negotiations be energy-consuming for you, but the conversations you have with an insurance company could substantially affect – or reduce – the value of your case.
An insurance company may:
- Ask you to make a recorded statement: If an insurer contacts you and asks you to make a recorded comment about the accident, know that you are under no obligation to do so. In fact, making a statement like this can be used to shift blame for the accident on you.
- Make you a low initial offer: It could be tempting to accept an offer if an insurance company contacts you soon after your fall. However, an early offer could be a low one. We advise that you avoid accepting an offer until you understand the full cost of your injuries and related losses.
You don’t have to deal with any of these concerns on your own. We can protect your case and advocate for your best interests.
We will Seek a Fair Settlement
In many cases, the insurance company refuses to pay out what the injured party is entitled to. They may try to claim that:
- You caused your own fall and injuries. An insurer may argue that your choice of footwear led to your fall, for instance. We will be prepared to fight back against false claims of your own liability.
- Your injuries aren’t as severe as you claim. An insurer may also try to suggest that your injuries are milder than they are or your treatments are not required. We will show the extent of your injuries based on evidence from your medical records and more.
You don’t have to deal with unfair insurance tactics on your own. If the insurer refuses to offer you a fair settlement, we can negotiate or even take your case to trial.
