Joseph Onwuteaka

Premises Liability Attorney

After graduating from Thurgood School of Law in 1986, I began helping those throughout the Houston, Texas area seek compensation for a variety of injuries and accidents.

I believe that there are two traits that successful lawyers must possess: trust and dependability. When you can trust and depend on your attorney to provide you with the quality legal representation you deserve, you’ll find the process to be less overwhelming.

What is Premises Liability?

Property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for their tenants, guests, and customers. If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property (whether it’s a hotel, apartment complex, restaurant, grocery store, amusement park, or recreational facility), you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.

STEPS AFTER A SLIP-AND-FALL ACCIDENT

    SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT

    Your top priority should be to ensure you or your loved one has not been seriously injured. Even though it may seem as though you are healthy, it’s best to get the opinion of a medical professional to eliminate any doubts of the court.

    DOCUMENT EVERYTHING

    Gather all necessary contact information from witnesses, take pictures of the incident, journal your personal experiences and recollections, and keep the clothing you were wearing safe. Having concrete evidence can help your case immensely.

    CALL AN ATTORNEY

    You should always decline to give statements to the property owner or manager before you have an attorney present. Slip and fall cases can be particularly complex, so reach out to an experienced attorney to help increase your chances of a successful result.

HOW YOU FELL MATTERS

Though it may seem absurd, whether you fell forward or backward is important because you must be able to prove there was a foreign object or dangerous defect of the land that contributed to or caused your fall.

LAWSUITS VS. CLAIMS

Claims can stay open forever, while lawsuits must end in either a victory or a denial. Talk to your personal injury lawyer to see which option is best for your specific circumstances so you can pursue a successful outcome.
