Slip and Fall Injury


A Recent Testimonial

I hired Mr. Traub following a motor vehicle accident in which a driver ran a red light and t-boned and totaled my car. I was injured in several places, one of which was a significant concussion which rendered me unable to think clearly or deal with the stress of wrangling insurance companies and all the other mountains of details that must be dealt with in situations like these. From the beginning, he was caring first and foremost. He was patient with my repeated questions (my concussion left me unable to hang onto details, for about a month I'd have to ask and re-ask even the simplest of things). He took my case and got started right away. Thanks to working with him I was able to have access and referrals to medical care that would have been difficult for me to attain otherwise, as I am self-employed and without health insurance. I felt the wonderful feeling of peace of mind knowing that someone was in charge and on my case, being a very strong advocate for me, my recovery, and my well-being going forward. I know having that kind of trust was an asset in my being able to focus all my attention and energy on getting back to myself and my routines. I always had prompt responses to emails or phone calls, and to address the earlier comment that expressed having a negative experience in communicating, any "cross-examining" I experienced-- and it was only one conversation-- was only about trying to get all the information straight and clear for the purpose of keeping things on task, up to date and 100% accurate for my case. It was one conversation, and it was quickly and easily resolved. And it was all because he had my back. I would highly and enthusiastically recommend hiring him when in need.

A slip and fall injury can be devastating: fractures, serious injury, injuries that are likely to become serious (like a back or neck injury with radiating pain in to the extremities indicative of disc involvement and even chronic regional pain syndrome also called CRPS or RSD).

Experienced Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers

At the Traub Law Office, P.C., we often help clients who have been harmed on another person or business premises. Our first concern is that our client receives appropriate medical treatment. Then we investigate the accident and determine if legal action should be taken.

  • Did bad lighting cause your accident? Bad lighting can cause a fall on stairs. Or it may prevent a person from seeing a hole or indentation in a walking surface.
  • Were you harmed because of poor security? If a building owner knew of previous assaults on the property and failed to improve the lighting or otherwise protect innocent people, you may have cause to make a premises liability claim for damages.
  • Was the property properly maintained?  A poorly maintained property is an accident waiting to happen.  Stairs that are worn, railing that is falling apart, trees that are pushing up sidewalks are all potential dangers that can easily be avoided with a simple inspection.  In one case, our client suffered a serious injury when she fell on sidewalk that had been uprooted by a tree growing under it.
  • Were warnings adequate?  If warning signs were put up, did they adequately put people on notice or was it possible to put better warnings up to prevent injuries?  In one case, our client went through a door which led right into a pitch-black room with stairs going down.  He fell and down and was severely injured.  A locked door would have prevented his injuries.
  • Contact an Austin premises liability attorney. When a building owner knowingly allows a dangerous situation to exist, and when that dangerous situation causes an accident, our slip and fall accident lawyer can help you determine your legal options.
