Dallas Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers
Proven Dallas Personal Injury Attorney
Slip and fall claims are some of the most common personal injury cases, but require very specific circumstances to be viable in court. Slip (or trip) and fall cases are sometimes synonymous for "premises liability" claims. These claims are reserved for visitors of a property who were harmed because of conditions to that property and want to hold the owners or managers responsible.
If you suffered a slip and fall injury on someone else's property, than you may have the grounds to seek compensation. At Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP, we have worked with countless slip and fall victims, helped them establish and structure their claim, and aggressively pursued restitution on their behalf.

The "Duty of Care" Concept
A legitimate slip and fall claim revolves around the concept of "duty of care." Duty of care is the responsibility property owners have to certain visitors of their premises to provide a safe environment.
In order to prove a slip and fall case in court, a plaintiff must show:
- That they were owed duty of care by the property owner
- That duty of care was not reasonably provided
- That the lack of duty of care led directly to the injury
Not all visitors are owed duty of care. Patrons of a restaurant or a store, for example, are owed it during operation hours because they are wanted and "invited" by the property management. However, a trespasser breaking into a store after hours is probably not owed the duty of care by a property owner.
