Proof of Slip and Fall Claims on Public Property in Texas
At the Law Offices of Jason Khattar in San Antonio, we advise and represent people who have suffered injuries in slip and fall accidents on both private and public property. When dangerous conditions on government land or municipal buildings are the cause of your injuries, however, the fact of public ownership can present complications for your case.
Contact one of our premises liability attorneys for a free consultation about your legal alternatives if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident on public property. Over the years, we have developed considerable expertise on a broad range of unsafe property claims, and our familiarity with the claims and defenses that can arise in a case involving a government defendant can represent an important advantage for you.
We represent clients who have been injured on municipal, state or federal property such as the following:
- Public schools
- Community recreation centers
- State or federal office buildings
- Military installations such as Randolph Air Force Base, Fort Bliss or Fort Sam Houston
- Highway construction zones or public infrastructure projects
- Municipal swimming pools
- State college or university buildings
While the basic rules of liability for slip and fall injuries apply to public defendants in much the same way they do for private property owners, special considerations can apply in lawsuits against governmental entities. These considerations can vary a great deal as well depending on how the accident occurred, where it occurred, and which unit or level of government is alleged to be liable for your damages. Some agencies will be able to claim immunity, while others will be covered under special notice rules intended to lead to settlement before a lawsuit is filed.
Because premises liability litigation has formed an important part of our practice for more than 15 years, we can identify the special considerations that might apply in your situation and protect your interests accordingly.
Whether your slip and fall injury was caused by a city sidewalk defect, lack of supervision at a municipal pool or negligent maintenance at a military base, we can advise and represent you.
