El Paso Premises Liability Lawyer

Attorney for Slip and Falls and More Serving Texas and New Mexico

When you are visiting a premises controlled by another party, you should be able to expect that the property is reasonably safe for those the controlling party allows to enter. Whether you are in a store, restaurant, or the home of a friend, you should not need to worry that the place is unsafe. However, some proprietors or social hosts fail to use reasonable care to maintain the property in a safe condition. When a proprietor or host allows a dangerous condition, people can be injured.

If you were injured on another party's property, you may be entitled to compensation. The Cal Mundell Law Firm, PLLC is experienced in helping those who were injured on another's premises recover the funds they need to cover their economic and noneconomic damages. Our goal is to ensure that you are in the same position you would have been in if the accident never happened.

Slip and Fall Lawyer Serving the Greater El Paso Area

Slip and fall cases are a very common type of premises liability personal injury lawsuit. However, they can be challenging cases. Generally, you will need to show that the party tasked with maintaining the premises knew or should have known about a spill or wet floor. This is sometimes difficult, as even a diligent manager may not know about a spill the moment it happens. Cal investigates these cases carefully, often interviewing witnesses or seeking out security camera footage.

While watching an actor "slip and fall" in a movie may be funny, the reality of the situation is much harsher. People involved in these types of accidents may suffer broken bones, spinal cord injuries, or even catastrophic injuries like traumatic brain injuries. Elderly and medically vulnerable people may be especially prone to sustaining major injuries. This is why Cal takes these cases very seriously.

Texas Attorney for Negligent Security

Crime on the premises can become a major issue for some business proprietors. When a proprietor is aware or should be aware that crime is taking place on their property, they have a duty to take reasonable steps to protect their patrons. For example, if a nightclub is aware that several people have been mugged in their parking lot, they should take steps like hiring additional security to patrol the area.

If the proprietor fails to act to prevent further crime, and you are injured on the premises due to third-party criminal conduct, you may have a premises liability claim against the establishment. Crime can be seen as a condition that renders the premises unsafe. Cal will investigate reports of past crimes in addition to the one you fell victim to in order to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.

Attorney for General Premises Accidents

Other types of accidents that take place on another's premises must be investigated to determine liability. To make a premises liability claim, a handful of facts must be proven. First, the party controlling the premises must have known about the danger, or the circumstances must show that they should have known. Then, we must prove that there was a condition that was unreasonably unsafe, such as a broken step or hidden tripping hazard.

We must also prove that the party in control of the premises failed to take reasonable steps to eliminate the danger. For example, placing a "wet floor" sign may be considered a reasonable step to prevent slip and fall accidents.

Finally, it must be shown that the known danger caused your injuries. This may be straightforward in some cases and complex in others. Cal will conduct a significant investigation to build the strongest case possible.
