Slip and Fall Accident Settlement
Texas Slip And Fall Accident Law can be complicated.
If you have a slip and fall accident at a business, you aren’t guaranteed to receive any compensation. This is because Texas law is very clear that the person who owns or controls the business location must have actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition that injured you. In the case of a spilled liquid, employees must know that the liquid was there or they should’ve known (constructive knowledge.) How should they have known? Constructive knowledge usually comes into play when an item is spilled and employees fail to inspect the business for a long period of time.
Texas helps many businesses to not fear being liable for slip and fall injuries. This is because the burden of proving the injuries is basically placed on the plaintiff. As part of the plaintiff’s case, they must show that the business owner knew or should’ve known that there was a dangerous condition that was ignored and injured the plaintiff.

Unfortunately, slip and fall accident cases rarely settle without filing a lawsuit, and the original law firm was no interested in taking Christine’s case to trial.
