If you slipped and fell on someone’s property and suffered injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Falls caused by poor lighting, slippery surfaces, or obstructed walkways can mean that the property owner may be held liable for your damages. The impact of this type of accident can affect a person’s ability to return to work, take care of themself, or enjoy the activities they once loved. If you were involved in a slip and fall accident that was caused by the negligence of another, contact a slip and fall lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins today and learn how our legal team will go above and beyond to ensure you recover the compensation you deserve for an accident that was not your fault.

How Can a Slip and Fall Attorney Help?

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident that was caused due to hazardous or dangerous conditions on someone’s property, a slip and fall lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins can help you pursue compensation that can cover the cost of medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. While you focus on recovering from your injuries, our legal team can help by:

  • Investigating the accident
  • Gathering evidence
  • Consulting with experts
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Assessing damages
  • Filing paperwork
  • Negotiating with the insurance company
  • Filing a lawsuit on your behalf (if necessary)

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we understand how devastating the aftermath of a slip and fall accident can be, especially if you sustained life-changing injuries, which is why we make it our mission to help accident victims recover maximum compensation for their losses.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

Soon after your accident, the negligent property owner’s insurance company may try to contact you. They will ask to hear your side of the story. While they may seem helpful and friendly, their goal is to get you to say something that could harm your claim and allow them to deny you compensation or pay out as little as possible. When you hire a slip and fall attorney at Loncar Lyon Jenkins, they will handle every aspect of your claim, including settlement negotiations. Our legal team is familiar with the tricks and tactics that an insurance company often uses to pay a low settlement amount and we will not back down until you recover the compensation you deserve.

The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

What is My Slip and Fall Case Worth?

The compensation you’re entitled to after a slip and fall will depend on many factors, such as:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • Your level of fault
  • Your prognosis
  • Whether you were forced to change careers due to your injuries
  • Whether you’re able to work at all
  • Whether your injuries will require medical treatment in the future
  • Insurance policy limits

And many other variables. 

Your attorney will carefully review your case to determine which damages you’re entitled to and the value of those damages.

  • Personal property damage
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress

  • Permanent disability

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Slip and Fall?

Your slip and fall lawyer will investigate the accident to determine how the accident happened and who should be held responsible. 

In some cases, the following parties can be held liable for a slip and fall accident:

  • Occupant
  • Leasee

What is the Statute of Limitations in Texas?

In Texas, you will have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If you fail to file within this time frame, your case will be dismissed and you will be unable to recover compensation for any of your accident-related losses. While pursuing compensation may not be a priority for you and two years may seem like a long time, it’s important to investigate the accident as soon as possible before repairs are made to the property. When you hire an experienced slip-and-fall lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins, they will investigate your accident immediately to uncover the truth, build a strong case, and will ensure all paperwork is filed correctly and within the statute of limitations.
