I am a personal injury lawyer dedicated to helping you. Whether you have been injured in a car accident or have suffered a fall, I can help you make the insurance company pay you what you are entitled to. As a former insurance defense attorney, I know how the insurance companies work.
If you or a family member is suffering the repercussions of any type of slip and fall accident, The Kashar Law Firm, P.C. would like to know. My mission is to provide Dallas residents with thorough and aggressive legal representation geared toward compensation that is maximized and stress that is minimized. I am Jennifer Kashar. With 18 years of experience in personal-injury claims, it is my promise and my privilege to treat your slip and fall injury with as much tenacity as a wrongful death claim—The Kashar Law Firm, P.C. handles every case with equal representation.
Whether one tumbles on an overly-polished bowling alley floor, on an ice-covered sidewalk in front of a retail store or on defective stairs in an apartment complex, injuries from slips and falls can be serious. The bottom line is determining if the owner of the property connected with the slip and fall injury is legally responsible.
Regarding the Defendant (party being sued)
Below, you will find three crucial components regarding slip and fall injuries. In order for a property owner to be considered legally liable, at least one of the following must be true:
1: The premise’s owner or employee must have caused the accident area to exist. This could be a spill, a crumpled area rug, a loose section of a step, a recently cleaned floor that was not completely dry or an item on the floor that did not belong there.
2: The premise’s owner or employee must have known the dangerous area on the floor or stairs existed but ignored it.
3: The premise’s owner or employee should have been aware of the dangerous area based on a reasonable person being familiar with the property would have discovered the danger potential and would have addressed the dangerous surface via removal or repair.
Liability on the part of the property owner or property occupier is determined by whether or not that person was reasonable with keeping the property safe. Even a situation such as poor lighting that may have contributed to a fall can be cause for a legitimate slip and fall lawsuit.
Regarding the Claimant (party pursuing the lawsuit)
It cannot be argued that the owner or occupier of a property is always and necessarily at fault. The injured person is expected to use a certain level of reasonableness, as well. The Kashar Law Firm, P.C. will help you determine whether or not an adequate degree of carefulness was utilized on your part. Questions you will want to ask yourself should include:
1: Did you have a justifiable reason for being in the vicinity of the dangerous area?
2: Were you careful to the point of noticing the dangerous surface? Also, did you have an opportunity to avoid the area or use extra caution and care to prevent a slip or fall?
3: Were any signs, indicators or warnings present to reveal the dangerous area?
4: Were you distracted or did you use your body in a way (such as running or jumping) that might have contributed to the slip or fall?
One important point my Dallas clients become aware of is the fact that powerful insurance company lawyers will do everything at their disposal to reduce or eliminate any possible compensation that claimants might be legally entitled to. I am acutely aware of the unethical and unlawful tactics that are utilized on a regular basis within the insurance industry. My clear insight lies with the fact that I am a former insurance defense attorney, myself. After 9 years in that capacity, I felt the calling to represent the claimants who are easy prey and can be unscrupulously and unknowingly victimized without legal representation. It is with passion and uncompromising diligence that I will fight for your rights and see to it you receive every penny you are legally entitled to. You want your life back; and I will help make that happen.
