You Have The Right To Seek Compensation For Your Injury

A commercial building accident refers to any incident resulting in injury that occurs within a non-residential property, such as offices, retail stores, or industrial facilities. These accidents can range from slips and falls on poorly maintained floors to injuries caused by falling objects or construction hazards. Regardless of the circumstances, if you’ve been injured due to negligence on the part of the property owner or manager, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. At Guajardo Injury Law, we help you understand your legal rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Common Reasons For Commercial Building Accidents:

  • Slippery or wet floors due to spills or inadequate maintenance

  • Insufficient lighting in hallways, stairwells, or parking lots
  • Negligent security leading to assaults or other criminal activities
  • Falling objects from shelves, construction sites, or poorly secured fixtures
  • Defective or malfunctioning elevators, escalators, or other machinery
  • Hazardous construction zones or renovation areas without proper signage or barriers
  • Negligent property maintenance resulting in tripping hazards like loose carpeting or debris

Commercial Building Accident FAQs

How Long Do I Have To File A Claim After A Commercial Building Accident?

In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is generally two years from the date of the accident. However, it’s essential to consult with a lawyer like Mr. Guajardo as soon as possible to ensure you meet all legal deadlines and preserve crucial evidence.

Can I Still Pursue Compensation If I Was Partially At Fault For The Accident?

Texas follows a modified comparative fault rule, meaning you can still recover damages even if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, your compensation may be reduced based on your percentage of fault. It’s essential to discuss the specifics of your case with a knowledgeable attorney like Mr. Guajardo to understand your legal options fully.
