Jeff Helps People Hurt In Slip and Fall Accidents
An experienced Athens TX personal injury attorney who gets results
A slip-and-fall accident can happen anywhere in Henderson County at any time. People fall in many different kinds of places and situations. And they can get seriously hurt. When a slip-and-fall accident was caused by negligence, attorney Jeff Weinstein of Weinstein Law can help. He fights to recover financial compensation for the injured.
These types of personal injury accidents can happen at stores, houses, restaurants, bars, hotels, shopping malls, parking lots and other locations. The owner of a property or business has a responsibility to make sure the premises are safe for visitors. When a person encounters a hazard that should not have been there, they can slip and fall and hurt themselves.
A slip-and-fall accident can happen because of:
- Spilled liquids
- Bags or wrappers left on the floor
- Floors wet from mopping
- Loose floorboards
- Damaged carpeting
- Uneven surfaces in pavement
- Lack of handrails on stairs
- Poor lighting
- Mopped floors
When there's an obvious slipping or tripping hazard, property owners and businesses have a responsibility to correct it promptly. If it is a hazard due to cleaning (for example, mopping), they have a responsibility to warn visitors. Failing to meet this responsibility is an act of negligence. And when someone gets hurt, Jeff holds them accountable.
A slip-and-fall accident can be very painful. A person falls to the floor and suffers all kinds of different injuries. These include broken bones, muscle sprains and strains, head injuries and back injuries. Accident victims require medical treatment that may include surgery and hospitalization, in some cases.
Jeff knows how these types of accidents can impact victims and their families. They are left struggling to pay medical expenses. Sometimes they have to miss work and there's less money coming in. But the owners of the property or business often deny doing anything wrong. And insurance companies don't take them seriously.

Our legal team can investigate your slip-and-fall accident. We know where to look for evidence of negligence. Jeff carefully reviews accident reports, safety records and medical records. Our team identifies witnesses and interviews them. If needed, Jeff will consult with experts who can help explain how the accident happened.
Insurance companies will do anything they can to avoid paying you compensation. They'll dispute your account of how the accident happened. They may try to pin most of the blame on you. Sometimes, they'll make you a lowball settlement offer. It can be tempting to accept, but it probably won't even come close to covering all the damages you suffered.
Jeff focuses on building a strong case that proves the negligence of an owner caused the accident that left you hurt. This often gets the attention of the insurance company and forces them to take your case seriously. That's when the insurance company usually agrees to talk about a settlement. But Jeff will only agree to a settlement that meets your needs.
