If you suffered a serious personal injury or lost a loved one in a fatal accident due to the negligent actions of someone else, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses.
An unexpected accident that results in a personal injury can be an extremely distressing experience. While many accidents result in mild bruises and lacerations, there are instances in which victims suffer severe impairments that diminish the quality of their life.
The loss of a limb, spinal cord damage, broken bones, head trauma, and paralysis are just some of the serious accident-related injuries that can greatly impact a person’s future. Physical and emotional suffering, as well as financial losses due to medical bills and lost wages can be heavy burdens that take a toll on the entire family.

Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Dallas
Texas law gives you two years from the date of your injury in which to file suit against a property owner. This two-year period is called a “statute of limitations.” If you fail to file a claim within the given timeframe, you forfeit the right to collect monetary compensation.
A slip and fall accident refers to a situation in which a person slips, trips, or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. While these accidents are often embarrassing, they can also lead to catastrophic injuries.
According to the National Safety Council (NSC), an estimated 8 million people visit the emergency room each year seeking treatment for injuries sustained in a slip, trip, or fall accident. Slip and fall accidents also account for 15% of all accidental deaths in the country, second only to motor vehicle crashes.
Those most susceptible to bad falls are the elderly, who often have poor eyesight and delayed reflexes. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that falls are responsible for 95% of hip fractures among adults aged 65 or older.
A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere but a greater risk of injury exists in commercial, business, and public establishments where there is high foot traffic and a multitude of products and displays.
Personal injury attorney Greg Bevel has successfully pursued claims against numerous prominent businesses, including grocery chains like Kroger and Aldi, “big box” retailers like Target, Walmart, Home Depot, and Costco, pharmacy chains such as Walgreens and CVS, and the delivery company UPS.
Premises Liability and Dallas Retail Stores
Every time you step into a local supermarket, department store, membership club warehouse store, or other business, you expect the store owners to provide you with a reasonably safe shopping experience. In fact, retail store owners in Texas have a legal obligation to ensure their premises are free from dangerous conditions that could do you harm (this extends to the entire premises including the parking lot, restrooms, dressing rooms, aisles, checkout lines, entryways and exits).
What is Your Legal Status on Someone Else’s Property?
The strength of your premises liability claim depends partly on how the law characterizes your “visitor status” while on someone else’s property. Texas has three categories of visitors and each one is owed a different standard of care by the property owner.
