Fort Worth Slip-and-Fall Accident Lawyer
Many people don’t realize that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS) require property owners to install ramps, railings and other safety features on buildings. These safety features protect everyone, not just the disabled. When these requirements are not in place, people get injured.
At The Law Offices of Randall D. Moore, PLLC, we are committed to protecting the rights of people who have been injured due to ADA or TAS violations and other unsafe property conditions. We represent clients throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and north Texas.
The following are examples of the types of cases lawyer Randall D. Moore handles:
- Falls caused due to missing handrails, defective ramps or other ADA or TAS violations
- Slip-and-fall accidents caused by spilled liquids in a store
- Falls caused by rotting wood on steps, porches, roofs or floors
- Injuries caused by building code violations
- Cracks, holes and other dangerous conditions in parking lots
- Inadequate lighting or security, as well as inadequate pre-employment screening of employees, resulting in assaults
To collect damages, you must prove that the unsafe condition was something the property owner either knew about or should have known about. It’s important to collect evidence through photographs before dangerous conditions are repaired. If the injury occurs in a store, security camera videos need to be collected and preserved before they are recorded over. Witnesses need to be interviewed before their memory fades — and if possible, before the property owner’s insurance company instructs them what to say.
Unfortunately, our civil justice system is an adversarial process. Property owners rarely admit responsibility, and their insurance companies may not believe that you were really injured. Without a lawyer to protect your rights, you may not receive any compensation.
