Premises Liability Cases
A premises liability claim is when you are injured on someone's property. Texas laws have made these claims very hard to prove in some cases. There are different burdens of proof that an injured person must prove depending on their status on the property. For example, if you are at Kroger's and you fall in the produce section, you are an "invitee" and you must prove that the store knew or should have known of the "unreasonably dangerous condition" and that they failed to warn you or fix the problem that caused your fall.
I have twenty years of experience representing clients injured in a premises claim. Experience that is necessary with these types of cases.
Our law firm handles cases involving a variety of negligent acts and conditions on someone else's property that cause injuries. Examples include failure to inspect property, insufficient lighting, defective stairs, defects in landscaping, or building code violations.
Common premises liability accidents involve:
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Dog bites and dog attacks
- Security breach assaults
- Apartment complex accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Elevator accidents
It is very important to request that the property owner complete an incident report when the accident occurs for documentation purposes. This may be difficult because in most cases the victim is very embarrassed and sometimes just wants to leave the store or property. Afterwards, seek immediate medical attention if necessary.
Our objective is to thoroughly investigate the case, question witnesses, learn the store's position, and gather medical evidence.
